Downtown is 20 minutes away by car or train and for those into the great outdoors; more than 20 km of riverside trails are yours to hike or bike at leisure.

This hotel its special in terms of providing a lovely quiet and serene environment with very close proximity to Vancouver International Airport. Whether we are returning from a long overseas flight or coming into Vancouver for a one night stay, we always look forward to our return. The Pet fee tends to be rather expensive, but we feel it is well worth it, and our rather large Rhodesian Ridgeback is always welcomed back with enthusiasm by hotel staff. We have stayed at some of the other Airport Hotels when rooms were not available at the Pacific Gateway, but this is by far our favourite hotel. Rooms that look out to the harbour are beautiful day and night. We appreciate that the heating and cooling system is efficient and quiet and the hotel soundproofing is excellent - a bonus as we are light sleepers. Book ahead and enjoy the discounts or book a package where you leave your car while you travel. Read less

We stayed in this hotel for 1 night en-route to Whistler the next morning. The hotel is very convenient for the airport and onward travel. The hotel is satisfactory, clean and functional in all respects for an overnight stay. The buffet breakfast in the morning of departure was good and the staff throughout our stay all very helpful and cheery.

We have stayed here on several occasions either before an early morning flight or a late arrival and have never been disappointed. Staff are very friendly. Hotel service is great as well as the shuttle service to the airport. The offer for leaving your vehicle (included) in stay is great. Very clean and exceptionally comfortable!
