How to Book the Best Hotels near Vancouver Airport

While building this Vancouver travel resource I’ve had the opportunity to partner with dozens of different hotel booking providers.

In the end, I ended up choosing Priceline for the following reasons:

  • They’re a publicly traded company with a $78 billion market cap for the utmost trust
  • They offer the greatest range of Vancouver airport hotels
  • They offer book now pay later rooms which help tons with budgeting
  • They’ve got a lowest price guarantee to help you save money

Finally, if you book using the links in the article you’ll be helping me get one step closer to my dream: being able to do Vancouver Planner for a living.

We’re just two born and bred Vancouverites that want to share our city – but can’t hire writers or spend $100,000 in weekly ads like Tripadvisor or Narcity.

So every booking helps, and we thank you enormously ?

Vancouver Airport Hotels near YVR Map

Lets get oriented. Vancouver International Airport is located on Sea Island, in the suburb of Richmond, BC about 15 kilometres from downtown Vancouver.

As a consequence, most of the true airport hotels in the region can be found within this municipality.

As mentioned, there is one YVR airport hotel in the South Vancouver neighbourhood of Marpole. And if you’re feeling extremely anxious about your flight, there is a hotel within YVR itself.

All of the other hotels on our list offer free airport shuttle service (with one exception). This ensures that you’ll be much less likely to miss that early morning flight!

And just a quick reminder, YVR is located just 25 minutes from downtown via the Canada Line.

So if you’ve got a bit of time to check out the city, be sure to read our articles on Vancouver airport transport and attraction gems like Stanley Park and the Capilano Suspension Bridge.
