Closest hotel to the airport, with excellent shuttle service that was prompt, reliable, good frequency. Property was standard Delta: high quality bed and furnishings; everything worked; ask for something extra (decaff. coffee) and get more than you need; pool area was clean and well maintained and the water warm. Room was quiet, soundproof, comfortable; we toured the neighbourhood and didn't have time to turn on the TV; had a window that actually opened. Bathroom large, clean, fully equipped. This was a 2-night Priceline booking for two adults; front desk offered to sell upgrades to a better room and to an expensive breakfast. Helpful concierge in lobby recommended some restaurants in Richmond Chinatown, and the courtesy van took us there, with optional pick-up. Pier 73 is a classy restaurant, and even provided real cream at night for in-room coffee, which was much appreciated since I react to that powdered stuff. Quirky elevators at night; poor signage for your room key to be required to get to your floor, and sometimes even that didn't work e.g. multiple tries; trip to floor and back to lobby with the door not opening. Well kept property on the river made for inviting walk; quite handy to Richmond and Skytrain; 20 minute walk is more realistic. Helpful advice from front desk about buying Skytrain tickets; shuttle picked us up several times at YVR. This was a quality hotel at a great price -I would have still been happy at higher rates.
