1 night stay near airport or another city hotel?

Hi ,

I am looking for a hotel for one night ,I will be picking up my husband from the airport around 11pm then heading to the hotel for some alone time before heading home the next day ,I would like a nice hotel that provides good room service ( hopefully reasonably priced)

Is it better to stay at Stamford plaza or Mercure hotel near airport to save travel time?

Are they good hotels?

Or should I book in shangri la or another hotel?

How bad is the traffic on Saturday night from airport to city?

Your help will be greatly appreciated

Thank you Ruba .

The usual recommendation is to stay in the city but it depends when you fly out the next day. But 11pm meet at the airport is pretty late. If you stay at the airport, then the new Rydges at the international terminal maybe an option.

However, if you aren't leaving till the following night, I'd consider the city.

Airport to the City at that time of night should take 15 to 20 minutes by taxi. I'd stay in the City and take a walk around the harbour on Sunday morning.

I agree and the city hotels are a lot nicer IMO, airport ones tend to be aiming at the business traveller

Then absolutely stay in the city.

You can't really compare the Shangri-La to the hotels you've listed at the airport.

You're checking in after 1130pm which means in room dining only. So if the Shangri-La is in your price range, easy choice
