In case you find yourself in an unexpected layover at the Vancouver airport, we've sifted through the internets to find the top picks among hotels near North America's best airport. While there are no boutique or super trendy hotels located near the runways, travelers can count on a handful of chain hotels that receive impeccable reviews from guests.
↑ Of course, if your flight has been delayed and you're stuck at YVR longer than expected, the Fairmont Vancouver Airport Hotel is pretty much the best option travelers have for an overnight stay. While room prices start at about $300/night, one can hope that the airline messed something up so the bill is on them - as it likely is. The hotel itself is of a typical Fairmont standard and has a mediocre cocktail lounged attached for those stressful travel moments that need to be drowned with a cocktail...or ten.
↑ Another airport top pick is the Delta Vancouver Airport Hotel which charged about $180/night. Travelers boast about the often free upgrades they receive upon arrival and that the customer service is next level. There is a free shuttle that runs from the hotel to the airport every twenty minutes so travelers can rest with ease knowing they won't miss that connecting flight. Major bonus points: The hotel itself is located in a lovely little harbor area so most rooms have some pretty stunning views - certainly not what you would expect from a chain airport hotel.
↑ Over at the Hilton Vancouver Airport Hotel, rooms start at about $200/night. Renter beware: online reviews reveal "hidden fees" - namely with the over priced parking. For those wanting to venture out of the hotel for dinner, the hotel is conveniently located walking distance to some of Richmond's best Chinese restaurants.
↑ Our search concludes with the Sheraton Vancouver Airport Hotel where guests continually comment on the impeccable service and the convenience to the airport via the hotels shuttle. Rooms start at about $180/night and include a complimentary breakfast.
