Stayed here over long weekend for about $112 King bedroom. All other hotels in Richmond were significantly more by $50-$70 dollars. That said, this hotel hasn't been renovated, so furnishings are worn, although clean.
Rooms - King bed is comfortable and clean, with fridge and new large flat screen tv and plenty of channels. We stayed on a room facing the street, so Ceili's pub in opposite corner can be noisy. bring your earplugs and eyemask.
Staff/Breakfast - staff keep the food stocked, and there is fresh waffles you can make yourself. Not bad, but if you wake late, can always walk over to Kirin restaurant for dim sum at 10am. Front desk personnel are very friendly and nice, provide recommendations and a pleasure to interact with.
Location - Richmond is a good location to enjoy the asian malls and nightmarkets. Short Walking distance to Kirin Restaurant / Richmond Mall and the Brighouse skytrain, and about 15 min walk to Landowne Mall, Parker Place Mall and 45 min to Aberdeen Centre. Underground parking available for smaller cars. Large trucks should avoid and stay aboveground, as I saw some scraping the insulation/pipes on the underground. roof. Can also drive easily to Steveston, blueberry picking farms and Lulu Island wineries on Westminster highway.More
