Flying into Toronto for a day? Or maybe it’s a long weekend getaway to Vancouver.  Across Canada, while many “Airport” hotels have always existed, the new trend of staying at “In-Airport” hotels have become a norm for travelers, especially on shorter trips.  Let’s face it, having to get up “2 hours before 2 hours before” your flight that is at 7:00 AM is not the most pleasant of situations to be in.  The luxury, or shall we say, convenience of being at the airport means more time to snooze or maybe even relax comfortably before your flight.  Not only that, these in-terminal hotels have made it easier for travelers to check out, collect their boarding passes, and some even allow for assistance with baggage directly into the airport terminal.  Oh and in case you forgot anything in your hotel room, maybe your laptop, or a set of keys, a simple stroll back to the hotel certainly sounds a lot better than commuting back to your hotel with the danger of missing your flight!

In this article, we feature our top 5 airport hotels in Canada and what makes them the right choice of accommodations on your next journey.

5. THE GRAND WINNIPEG AIRPORT HOTEL & THE FOUR POINTS BY SHERATON WINNIPEG

While not attached to YWG, the hotel sits directly across the street from the Airport terminal.  This boutique hotel is featured by it’s focus to technology. You’ll find an IPAD in every room with custom apps for guests and yes, you guessed it, in room NETFLIX!. In addition, the rooms feature Samsung Smart TV’s with full PVR functionality, a Keurig Coffee machine and also features a climate controlled walkway (yes it get’s THAT cold in Winnipeg) to another one of the airport’s hotel properties, the FOUR POINTS BY SHERATON WINNIPEG.

4.  DELTA CALGARY AIRPORT HOTEL

YYC’s only airport hotel features a 24-hour fitness center and even features day-use rates for those long layovers.  The hotel also offers fine dining at the North 51 Steakhouse and is just a mere steps away from Calgary’s family attraction, the SpacePort.  Situated in the airport also means not having to embrace those cold temperatures in the Winter!
