My daughter took me here for my birthday. Yani was performing and we spent the night. We had a really nice dinner and a few happy drinks. We are not gamblers, but it was fun none the less. I would go again.

Had booked a room for this coming May. Had to cancel due to the event we were going to was cancelled (Covid-19). I called and spoke to Steve who assured me that it had been cancelled and would send an e-mail confirmation. Still have not received. Went online to look at my original booking number and it was still booked. Not cancelled. Not good. Will not book at this hotel again.

I’ve had the pleasure of staying at the River Rock on two separate occasions. On the first, which happened a few years ago, I was pretty excited. Ever since it opened (2004), the River Rock has been on my local bucket list of places to stay. Set on the banks of the mighty Fraser River, there was just something about this resort and casino that caught my eye. Perhaps it was, as one of their ads say, “fun stays here”? Yes, that could’ve been the appeal. I mean, the River Rock is all encompassing when it comes to attractions and events: There’s a pool (with waterslide), fitness centre, 24-hour casino, the River Rock Theatre and a number of eateries on site, sure to satiate any taste and appetite. In brief, there’s no shortage of things to do. But more on my most recent stay in a moment. In terms of location, the River Rock is ideally situated. First, it’s barely 5 kilometers from Vancouver International Airport. Translated to a taxi ride, that’s less than 10 minutes. Second, the River Rock is connected to the Canada Line skytrain system. This is attractive for a couple of reasons: 1) It’s just a little over 10 minutes to YVR via Canada Line and it’s approximately 20 minutes to downtown Vancouver; 2) The Canada Line – as part of TransLink – is cheaper than a taxi. Thus, you’ll have more money to spend at the casino! Third, the TransLink bus system is basically right across the street and thus provides greater access to other areas of Vancouver. Fourth, the River Rock is close to a number of popular attractions: The Richmond Night Market, which runs from May to October, is a mere 5-minute walk from the hotel; the McArthurGlen Outlet mall is a 3-minute Canada Line ride away, and other malls like Oakridge and Richmond Centre are within striking distance using skytrain as well; a Cineplex VIP is accessible via the Canada Line and its Marine Drive stop. You can also see Doug Coupland’s impressive “Golden Tree” here. Like all contemporary hotels, the River Rock contains a plethora of amenities and services. There’s an impressive conference centre and meeting rooms (which I’ve utilized in the past); a fitness room for all you health nuts out there; the aforementioned pool with waterslide; a delightful sundry shop in the main foyer; 24-hour casino (the largest in BC); expansive free parking; and the lovely River Rock Theatre, which has seen many legendary (and some now disgraced) performers . . . my personal favourite performance? Christmas with Elvis ;) The River Rock is also home to a number of restaurants, which are sure to please most. In no particular order: Starbucks in the main entrance area; the popular Buffet on the upper level (see my earlier review on this site); Tramonto – also on the upper level; the newly revitalized River Rock food court, which features delectable Asian fare, burgers and wood-fired pizzas. Across the street, on the hotel side of the casino, there’s also the Sea Harbour Seafood Restaurant, which is home to authentic, upper-scale Chinese dishes (see my earlier review on this site). In short, whether you want something fancy, or just a quick bite, the River Rock has you covered. With regard to my most recent stay, I was here with my dear grandmother in the waning days of August. She’d received an “exclusive offer” in the mail for 2 free nights – all she had to do was call. Much to my surprise, there was no catch and she was able to cash in on the offer, securing two complimentary nights in the midst of summer . . . an awesome value especially given the ridiculous prices charged by all Greater Vancouver Area hotels during their so-called “summer season.” In any event, we had a room with two Queen beds. I really appreciated the contemporary look of our accommodation, which was nicely appointed. We had a high definition, flat screen TV, charging ports for our smart devices, free WiFi, a mini fridge and nifty Nespresso machine. The beds were the very definition of comfort – made for a relaxing sleep after a long night of gambling in the casino! All in all, the River Rock is a comprehensive resort and casino that has a bit of something for everybody. If you want to gamble, watch a show, enjoy some good eats or have a romantic getaway, the River Rock has it all. In terms of value for money, this is a nice establishment to patronize, especially when you get those special offers in the mail! Highly recommended!

This hotel is extremely easy to get to from Vancouver airport. Catch the Skytrain from the parking lot and third stop. is attached to the River Rock's parking lot with easy access to the hotel and casino. The rooms on the river-side are all suites and are beautiful. The rooms in the Hotel are spacious but just well-appointed hotel rooms.

My family booked River Rock for the New Year's celebration because they have live DJ and a Cirque du Soleil show whch was one amazing experience. The room was really nice, clean, spacious and having Nespresso is a plus. Our check-in was fast despite a problem with my misspeled surname😁. Food from the bar was a bit expensive but tasted so good.Definitely cominv back if we happen to visit Richmond again.
