How do I make it to the Sheraton Guildford Hotel - very early in the morning?

Dear all

I tried to figure out this information myself, but am a bit stranded - does somebody have advice?

I need to be at the lobby of the Sheraton Guildford Hotel at 7 sharp morning of April 25. (I am starting school in the north of Canada, and that's the requested pick up spot and time to start my class, long story!) I would normally stay with Vancouver friends (or maybe some lovely CS person I am still looking forward to meet)the night before - now as I see it, the trains or coaches to this area of the city would not be running so early. People suggested I should book a night at the hotel, but really, if I can avoid this, I would. Its not an exciting hotel, plus its expensive - I don't think I would be so thrilled to stay there for any reason.

As a local, what would you do to make it to the hotel at this early time in the morning? All suggestions would be really appreciated - my current thank you currency is in Swiss chocolate :-)

Advice, anybody?

Thanks

Antoinette

Hey Antoinette,

Have you tried searching for a host in the Guildford area?

If not, you can look for a bed and breakfast place to stay (instead of staying at Sheraton).

There's this Oliver's Garden Bed and Breakfast Surrey on 14980 96th Avenue | Surrey, BC | V3R 1E7. You can call them at 604-589-8049 to make enquiries. You can find some others on this webpage (http://www.surreylodging.worldweb.com/BedBreakfasts/) Such places are usually alot cheaper.

From there, you can walk about 28 to 30 minutes to Sheraton Guildford in the morning or take the bus and reach in 12 minutes - http://maps.google.ca/maps?f=d&source=s_d&saddr=Sheraton+Guildford+Hotel&daddr=14980+96+Ave,+Surrey,+BC+V3R+1E7&geocode=Faaa7gIdLT6u-CHICLI2Mru_sSl9OqdcEteFVDGKY4rlfy6qkQ%3BFRFh7gIdPR2u-ClzvJskXdeFVDEGS551Inm3sg&gl=ca&hl=en&mra=ls&dirflg=r&ttype=dep&date=11%2F04%2F09&time=06:00&noexp=0&noal=0&sort=def&sll=49.184185,-122.80267&sspn=0.028556,0.084543&ie=UTF8&ll=49.18406,-122.802687&spn=0.028556,0.084543&z=14&start=0

Sorry, the google maps link I gave you was wrong.. it should be http://maps.google.ca/maps?f=d&source=s_d&saddr=14980+96+Ave,+Surrey,+BC+V3R+1E7&daddr=Sheraton+Guildford+Hotel&geocode=FRFh7gIdPR2u-ClzvJskXdeFVDEGS551Inm3sg%3BFaaa7gIdLT6u-CHICLI2Mru_sSl9OqdcEteFVDGKY4rlfy6qkQ&gl=ca&hl=en&mra=ltm&dirflg=r&ttype=dep&date=11%2F04%2F09&time=06:00&noexp=0&noal=0&sort=def&sll=49.184172,-122.802687&sspn=0.028556,0.084543&ie=UTF8&ll=49.184228,-122.802687&spn=0.028556,0.084543&z=14&start=0 instead (typed in wrong direction - from Sheraton to B&B)
