Many downtown hotels are close to the Canada Line rail/subway that runs downtown from Vancouver International Airport (YVR). If your hotel is too far to walk from the Canada Line, an idea is to take the Canada Line to City Centre and exit left into the Pacific Centre Mall. Once in the mall turn right (north) through the mall to ascend the second set of escalators to the Four Seasons Hotel. There is a taxi stand outside of the Four Seasons Hotel. If the mall is closed, you can exit to street level and walk 200 paces left (west) to Howe Street and then right (north) the same distance to the Four Seasons Hotel entrance and taxi stand. A local metered taxi fare is about $10 to most of the downtown hotels. Below are some hotels and some very approximate distances from the Canada Line stations. Many listed hotels are more or less equidistant from two stations. Compare the Canada Line to a taxi directly from the airport for about $35.
