I stayed at the Vancouver Airport Marriott last week. It is not really close to
the airport, however they do provide a
Complimentary shuttle and the hotel in located right across the mall, so it is a
great location in Richmond, a 10 minute run from the airport.
The staff here are exceptional, it their mission to make sure everything is done
right, the first time around. I was checked in by Jessica,
late night and it was very quick and she was very detailed and precise. Another
time, I needed a laundry bag and Richard was
so helpful and pleasing. The rooms are very clean, comfortable and quite
spacious, the house keeping staff are very detailed. The beds are great and you
wake up well rested. At breakfast, they offer a wide variety of items and
everything is clean. Their staff are very well trained and a true reflection
that they take pride In where they work. This is a great hotel for the business
traveler, with all the amenities, it is not a Luxurious property.
Had a Great stay!

We stayed one night after a long Transatlantic flight, hoping to get a good rest
before driving back to the States the next day. The wait for the airport shuttle
was a bit long (an earlier shuttle refused to take us because it's reserved for
KLM airline crew) but once we arrived at the hotel, we were impressed by the
genuine welcome from the front desk staff. Our room was large and comfortable
and the "executive lounge" breakfast the following morning was very good. Having
Starbucks rather than the usual Marriott coffee was a very pleasant surprise.
After a great night's sleep and filling breakfast, we were able to put the
experience of having a three-year old kicking our seat backs from Amsterdam to
Vancouver behind us.
All in all, despite the fact that the hotel is a 10-15 minute drive from the
airport, and even though the hotel does show some signs of wear, the outstanding
staff more than compensates. We will return.

Convenient hotel with pick up service which is reliable from the airport every
30 mins 24 hours a day. I stayed for three nights, it was fine with clean rooms
and pleasant staff. It is an "an expected" hotel from Marriott where it works
fine as a clean comfortable bed near your meeting or airport transfer. Internet
was poor which frustrated me and I had a few other comments on the hotel but I
would not object to being booked there again as it was fine.

Stayed a week here while exploring Vancouver and surrounding areas. Great staff,
always very friendly and smiling. Very fast service when called for something
for room. Bed super comfortable, great shower. Free Wifi. Only negative is that
local calls are not free, but toll-free calls are, so be aware of that. Liked
the Starbucks in room and two flat screen tvs. Complimentary airport shuttle
very convenient. Also just around the corner from the Skytrain. Used that to get
to downtown for the first few days, then rented a car right next door to explore
further to Steveston, West Vancouver, North Vancouver and Whistler. This
location is near large shopping mall with lots of food options and shopping,
although we only went there once for an early lunch before heading downtown.
Also a Starbucks right outside, and a drug store, post office and convenience
store all very close (5 minute walk). Would recommend this hotel to others. :)

I stay at this hotel whenever I have business in the Vancouver area. It is
conveniently located near the airport (free shuttle service to and from the
airport every half hour), across the street from a major shopping centre and
very close to the rapid transit line to downtown Vancouver. The staff are
absolutely first rate! After many years of frequenting this hotel, I appreciate
being greeted as if I were family. The rooms are spacious and comfortable.
Anyone who has stayed at other Marriott hotels knows how comfortable the beds
are! All of the staff, Randy (in the restaurant), Donovan (in Lotus Land) - just
to mention a few, are welcoming and go out of their way to make your stay
enjoyable. The meals at Allie's Restaurant are superb! There isn't anything on
the menu that I have tried that hasn't been good. My absolute favourite is the
tenderloin steak, followed closely by the roasted chicken breast. Allie's staff
is very accommodating in meeting any special dietary requests that you might
have. As a Marriott Gold or Platinum member, you have access to the Concierge
Lounge for breakfast and Appies/Dessert - a nice bonus for those who are
Marriott loyals. This is a fabulous facility which I highly recommend!
