Sean, thanks, that's an awesome tip, especially considering that the Quick Shuttle says it goes to downtown Vancouver and provides 'door step service to most major hotels'.
Also, sorry if this is probably too much detail at this point, thanks to the Olympic legacy (<cough>taxpayers</cough>) Vancouver now has direct light rail service (SkyTrain) from the airport to downtown for $3.75 (peak) / $2.50 (evenings + weekends).
Either way, better than paying $35 for a cab from the airport to downtown.
