Vancouver Airport Hotels
After flying from the east coast or travelling on a trans-Pacific flight exhausted passengers arriving at Vancouver can cozy up in a matter of minutes in several nearby hotels. You can skip the cab to downtown Vancouver or the 26 minute ride on the Skytrain and take a brief, free shuttle to your airport hotel.
Vancouver International Airport is not in a remote wasteland, devoid of attractions, so from your airport hotel you can, when you are fully rested, shop, walk or jog, or take in some sights.
