How to get here

Here are the instructions for getting to the hotel without using the hotel shuttle. For guests getting to and from the Sheraton Vancouver Guildford Hotel using public transit, the best sky train stop to use is the Surrey Central Sky Train Station, and not the King George station.  Get off at Surrey Central sky-train station and take a city bus to the Sheraton Vancouver Guildford Hotel. Buses are located right at the sky train station. Look for, Bay#2 and get on the #320 bus which will either say Fleetwood or Langley. (This bus leaves every 10 minutes on weekdays or every 15mins. on weekends). This bus runs right along 104th Avenue, same avenue the hotel is on. When the guests see the Guildford Town Centre Mall they should get off at that stop which is the stop is in front of the Sears department store. Look up; look for the tower in front of you and the large Canada Flag, and you will see the hotel. The hotel is located across the street, one short block away. The bus ride is approximately 12 minutes from the Surrey Central Sky-Train station. For further information or transit trip planning refer to: or customer service at T: 604.953.3333
