Arriving By Air

The Vancouver International Airport (YVR) is about 6 miles (10 kilometers) from the hotel. YVR is Canada’s second largest airport, a major hub with 42 airlines offering direct flights to 106 destinations, the longest being a 16-hour flight to Melbourne, Australia.

The Skytrain can take you to downtown Vancouver in under 30 minutes for $9.00 ($7.75 after 6:30 pm, on weekends, and on holidays). From the airport, take the “Canada Line” toward “Waterfront Station,” but get off one stop earlier at “Vancouver City Centre Station,” which is five short city blocks away from the hotel. Skytrain service from the airport begins at 5:08 am, with the last train leaving at 12:57 am.

Taxis and wheelchair-accessible vehicles are available at taxi stands located on Level 2 of the Domestic and International Arrivals Area at YVR. The estimated taxi fare is $35.

Car rental facilities are conveniently located just steps from YVR’s terminal on the ground floor of the parkade (which means “multistory parking structure,” in Canadian).

Arriving by Auto:

The drive from Seattle, WA, is approximately 2.5 hours. The (absolutely gorgeous) drive from Calgary’s airport (YYC) is approximately 10 hours (but you’ll want to spend a few days in Banff National Park on the way).

Public parking is available at the hotel (reservation not required).

Arriving by Train:

The hotel is less than 10 minutes’ walk from the Yaletown-Roundhouse train station.
