Vancouver Airport – Best Places To Stay
- The Fairmont Vancouver Airport is one of the best airport hotels I’ve ever stayed in. Highly recommended.
- Hotels in Terminal: Fairmont Vancouver Airport – the only hotel within the airport terminal, every other hotel is at least 3 km from the airport.
- Hotels near Airport with Free Shuttle: All hotels below offer free on-call shuttle services both ways. Passengers are required to walk to the Departures Level 3 of either the Domestic or the International terminal and call their hotel from there. If arriving at the South Terminal, catch a free airport shuttle to the YVR main terminal level 3, and request hotel shuttle pick up from there.
- Rentalcars.com – reserve cars in advance for pick up at the Vancouver airport, steps from the domestic terminal (and a 5 minute indoor walk from the international terminal).
