Travel & Logistics


The Pan Pacific Hotel is located two blocks from Waterfront Station. Those who arrive at YVR Airport can take the Canada Line train leaving YVR to Waterfront Station. Waterfront Station is the final stop on the Canada Line. (There is only one train that departs from YVR, so there is no worry about getting on the train going in the wrong direction.) The train from the airport to Waterfront Station costs $9 and tickets can be purchased at the YVR train station.

Alternatively, it is easy to take taxis to and from the airport. Including tip, a taxi between YVR and the Pan Pacific will cost $35 - $40 CAD.
