FrontRunners: Luxury Layover

Stay at the Fairmont Vancouver Airport (604.207.5200, www.fairmont

), and you will hope that your flight is delayed, or better yet, canceled. The Fairmont offers all of the amenities you expect in a luxury hotel: soundproof, spacious rooms, a fine restaurant, and a romantic bar; a deluxe fitness center, pool, and spa; and high-speed Internet access. A remote control lets you adjust the room temperature or lighting and request maid service—all without lifting your head from the down pillow.
Best of all, because this hotel is located at the Vancouver Inter-national Airport, you can roll out of bed at the last possible minute, sip your coffee while watching the jets from your floor-to-ceiling window, pick up your boarding pass from a lobby kiosk, and stroll to your gate. A gourmet meal—sushi, perhaps, or a platter of imported cheeses, grapes, crackers, and sparkling water—can be packed to sustain you during your journey.
