Vancouver Hotel Stay

Where to Stay in Vancouver

Vanpools leave at 8:30 am and 11 am from the YWCA Downtown Hotel on Wednesday, September 3. So, if you're flying in from out of town, you will likely need to spend the night of September 2nd in Vancouver.

Similarly, vanpools will not arrive back into downtown Vancouver until 6 pm and 8 pm on September 7. If you're planning to take a night flight on the 7th, please do not book flights before 9 pm to allow enough time to get to the aiport from downtown Vancouver.

Here are some places to stay in Vancouver.
