The "list of government-authorized hotels" in Metro Vancouver is growing.
Hotels where people arriving from abroad at Vancouver International Airport can quarantine now include:
- Days Inn by Wyndham Vancouver Airport
- Fairmont Vancouver Airport
- Four Points by Sheraton Vancouver Airport Hotel
- Radisson Vancouver Airport
The Westin Wall Centre Vancouver Airport was the first hotel approved for Vancouver-bound travellers.
Travellers arriving in Vancouver from international destinations must quarantine themselves at one of the approved hotels for three nights according to new federal regulations in an effort to slow the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19) and its variants. Bookings cannot be made directly with the hotel and must go through GB Travel Canada Inc. which is available via phone only.
They can be reached at:
- 1-800-294-8253 (toll-free within North America)
- 1-613-830-2992 (collect outside of North America)
The lines are open Monday to Friday from 5 a.m. to 8 p.m. (in the Pacific Standard Timezone, which Vancouver is in).
Currently, only four airports in Canada are receiving international flights: Vancouver, Toronto, Montreal and Calgary. Each has at least two hotels that have been approved for these quarantines. Along with the four added to Vancouver, there were two more added in Toronto and one more added in Montreal.
The government has a list of information needed to book a hotel:
- traveller name(s)
- date(s) of birth
- arrival city and date
- payment information
- special requests and accessibility concerns
- pet information
