time to get through customs

My flight is touching down at 12:45 in the morning at Vancouver's airport. If I have a meeting at the metrotown hotel in Burnaby, how long do people think it would take me to get my luggage, get through customs, and get to the hotel?

If you give yourself 2 hours that should be fine... at that time of the night there will be no traffic so it will take about 30 minutes to metrotown... and then depending on how many other flights are arriving at the same time as you... an hour an a half should be loads for customs and getting luggage.

2 hours is reasonable. Any time I've come home from a trip in the wee hours of the morning things seem to move pretty smoothly. Also, as per the last post, half an hour from the airport to Burnaby is about right.
