 Vancouver, British Columbia, Travel Information 
Flying direct to Vancouver International Airport YVR would be the easiest route. From the airport take the CANADA LINE transit line. From the international arrivals go out the front doors, cross the lane to the escalator or elevator which takes you up to the transit station. From domestic arrivals (flights within Canada), From baggage carousel, go through the rock walls, turn left and take the concourse to the elevator at the end. Take elevator to the top and you will see the transit entrance. Take transit to the CITY CENTRE station, go up the escalators and out the doors which puts you on Georgia St., turn left out the doors to the first corner which is Howe St. Turn left on Howe and walk four blocks to Holiday Inn. The walk is 15 minutes or less.

Abbotsford airport YXX is about an hour and a half drive away east of Vancouver.
U.S. citizens might find flights to/from Seattle Seatac Airport or, closer yet, Bellingham Airport. There is a shuttle bus service from these airports to our Holiday Inn,
Note that advance reservations are necessary for Bellingham, and that while I am providing this link in Feb, you should check Quickcoach for updates - on Sept 26, they update their schedule and rates. Perhaps you can arrange an advantageous schedule for yourself using Vancouver airport in one direction and Seatac or Bellingham in the other direction.
To take Canada Line from domestic flights: From the baggage carousels, make a left turn and follow the concourse to the end, take the elevator, out the elevator and veer right up the ramp to transit.
