How do you get from Tsawwassen Ferry Terminal to the hotel
Good day! You may take the 620 bus from Tsawwassen Ferry Terminal to Bridgeport Skytrain Station (approx 35 mins), and take the Canada Line Skytrain from Brideport Station to Waterfront Station (approx 18 mins). Head northwest on W Cordova St toward Granville St. Turn right onto Howe St and a slight left onto Canada Pl. It's approximately a 4-minute walk from Waterfront Station. Thank you.

I would beg to differ. Rather than an eyesore, the western red cedar cabin style ‘hut’ is emblematic of the west coast, Vancouver and The Waterfront in terms of materials, style and location across from the harbour. I was hoping that it was a new First Nations influenced gift shop, a place for the mascot dog, or storage for more BMW bicycles to better explore the beautiful city. If you’re interested in a more urban piece outside a Fairmont, try a block away at the Fairmont Pacific Rim with its Porsche Panamera parked in the water feature outside. Cheers.

do you have airport shuttle?
I dont beleive they do, but the train goes there. Take Canada Line from airport, ride all the way to end of yhe line at Waterfront stop. Fairmont is half a block away. The Canada Line is fairly new, clean safe, very affordable and quicker than a taxi. Taxi to fairmont is about 45$. Train is $7 ish per person. No uber in Vancouver.
