Stayed at the Delta Hotel in Burnaby, which is part of a casino complex. I was not able to use the casino but a fellow traveler did and indicated that it was clean and smoke free, with lots of nickel and penny slots! The hotel itself is very clean and the staff is efficient. The rooms are clean and new. The only downside to the room is that it’s fairly sparse with one corner oddly having no pictures, lamps or chairs. It’s just empty. Weird. The rooms are your average small hotel room. There’s a nice flat screen TV, ironing board, desk and chair. There’s wired internet but it costs about $10 per day. The hotel is very quiet, but because it’s configured as a tower, each floor has about 5 rooms, each fairly close to the elevator. So when you’re A/C is not on and not creating ‘white noise’, you can hear the elevators ringing. There’s a health room that has tread mills, a weight machine, towels. There’s also a spa in the hotel. Despite being on the 14th floor, the elevators are very quick and I never had to wait more than 10 seconds for one. To access floors above 3 you have to insert your room card. Each morning you receive a newspaper in a “green” bag (rather than a plastic back that you throw away). Nice idea.
One irritating thing in the room is that the window drapes do not block all of the light. Light leaks around the top, sides and bottom. This would not matter except the rooms in the tower face the front of the hotel, and there are bright spotlights pointing up toward your window at night. So, I tried to block the edges with pillows, and used a chair to force the drapes against the gaps. There’s a thermostat and the A/C works very well.
There’s a very nice restaurant called Edo (or something like that) that serves a very good breakfast for a reasonable cost, including a continental breakfast. There’s free parking outside of the hotel or you can use the casino parking. Each morning there was a line of taxi’s waiting to drive people to their destinations. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The lobby is nicely apportioned with a Starbucks right there. There’s a snack shop just off of the lobby and a business center.
If you’re thinking about staying here because it’s near Vancouver, keep in mind that during rush hour Vancouver traffic is terrible. During light traffic, you’re about 25 mins from Vancouver downtown. During heavy traffic, it could be 45 mins.
This hotel is very much like a Marriott Courtyard, but not quite as apportioned (meaning, the room is a little more sparse).
