Transportation from vancouver airport

We're a family of five; 4 adult sized people a one ~100lbs. We'll have the complete compliment of luggage for an Alaskan cruise (plus the compliment of extras for a 16yo girl).

For those that have done it before, would you suggest getting a taxi to Canada place or hiring a car service? I'm assuming that if we use a taxi, it will be more than one.

We took the Skytrain to Pan Pacific hotel stop and walked a block to the hotel.
I made sure each kid could roll their luggage. No problems.

It was not very expensive.

I'd just get a taxi -- roughly the same price for 5 people and door-to-door service. You should have no trouble fitting 5+luggage into a taxi -- some of them are minivans.

We used the sky train to get from the airport to the hotel, which included a 2 city block walk with our luggage uphill. We took a taxi van from Canada Place to the airport. SOOO much easier and cost us about the same. There were 4 of us with 4 big pieces of luggage and carryons.
