“A Pleasant and convenient place to stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 October 2013

It was so pleasant to have a convenient place to stay after 31 hours of air travel. The staff was pleasant, the check-in trouble free, the room more than adequate and very clean. We appreciate the breakfast nook in the morning and the shuttle service to the airport runs on a regular basis. We have stayed here on several occasions while travelling in and out of YVR and never been disappointed.

We embarked on a Princess cruise out of Canada Place in late September. We flew into Vancouver Int'l Airport the day before the cruise left and we booked one night at this Holiday Inn Express. It is an excellent place to stay when you need something close to the airport. You can stay anywhere in downtown Vancouver for a much higher price, and still may need a taxi or shuttle service to get to the airport or Canada Place. The hotel was very clean and comfortable and they have their own shuttle to/from the airport. Breakfast in the morning is excellent and you have a wide array of items from which to choose. Coffee and tea are available 24 hours a day.
Now, the shuttle service we used, (Vancouver Shuttle) is not affiliated with Holiday Inn. We booked that separately to take us from the hotel to Canada Place on embarkation day. We scheduled a pickup at 11:30 am and the shuttle bus was sitting outside the hotel at 11:15. It filled with guests/passengers from the Holiday Inn Express and as long as you have your cruise luggage tags affixed to your baggage, the driver will take care of them at the port for you. Vehicle was clean and had plenty of room for all (about 15 people). Fee was $28 for two people.
If you are planning a cruise out of or into Vancouver, consider this review as an option for your trip. You will not be disappointed!

We stayed here enroute to a cruise. The hotel offers free and timely pick up at the airport. Good free breakfast which is a real savings. The Sky train to downtown Vancouver is only a 10 minute walk from the hotel and we had a total of 2 Roller bags 1 small duffle bag and 2 carry on bags. We had no difficulty getting to the Sky Train. The cost for us on a Saturday for 2 seniors was less than 4$, it took around 25 minutes and dropped us off (last stop) only 2 blocks from the ship. The Sky Train ticket machine takes credit cards and you need 2 zone tickets. The only down side to the hotel is the lack of a lot of restaurant choices near by. Since we had been to downtown Vancouver several times we chose this hotel as a great economical alternative.

Room Tip: Our room was quiet and clean.

Stayed at this hotel at the recommendation of a friend. Checking in was fast, the room was very clean and the bed was comfy. Front desk was always helpful with answering my questions. Helped us book a tour and also showing us where to sight see around Vancouver. Parking was $5.00 a night, not bad for gated parking. Breakfast was free with lots of different selections. I would return for sure. Thank you Holiday Inn for making our stay so comfortable.

Location is close to airport, kind of industrial/sketchy area. You don't want to park a nice car on the street here. So parking in hotel garage would be an upgrade - if the security system was working...
Decent bed. Staff had no idea where to eat in the area at 9pm. Really? You never get that question? It's only a couple of minutes by car (you know I have one, I just talked to you about parking!) to a much better selection of restaurants, and you suggest Subway and Burger King?
Thanks (not) much.
Skipped the return night here, went to the Days Inn Airport, instead.

David P,

I appreciate your time and providing us a description of your recent stay with our hotel. Our location is close to the airport, however I am uncertain of the industrial area you are describing. I do apologize we were unable to provide you an answer for the location of the fast food options, all of which are very close to the hotel. We have recently hired several new team members for our Front Desk area which has somewhat limited our local knowledge. I assure you we are working very hard to bring our team up to "speed" as quickly as we can. We do have a gated secure under ground parking with regular patrols conducted throughout the night, with has seen no "activity". We do hope to welcome you back to our hotel on your next visit to the Richmond/Vancouver area.

Well appointed hotel, suited our needs. Excellent breakfast, described as continental, but with several hot choices including eggs and sausages. Friendly staff. No restaurant but there is the choice of a site across the road with has a restaurant or food in the bar area. As previous reports say a good venue for a quick stay.

We only stayed 1 night here but it was great! Clean, Friendly and great service. We will forsure stay here again! The morning breakfast was alright I just wish that they had better healthy choices to choose from. The gym was pretty good but I felt like it needed to be cleaned and there should be a drink and snack machine on every floor. But all in all a great place to stay!
