We really enjoyed this hotel. For the family, it is on the same property as a
SilverCity theatre, public swimming pool with waterslides and kiddy area,
trampoline park, lazer tag, and bowling. No shortage of activities for the kids.
The room was extremely quiet, no noisy air conditioners, etc. The free hot
breakfast was excellent.

I stayed at this hotel as I had an early morning flight out of YVR and while
this hotel is not technically an airport hotel, they do provide a free shuttle
to/from the airport. They do require you to call them when you need a ride from
the airport- This might be an issue for people who don't have a
phone/international plan, but I'm guessing you could ask someone at the airport
to call for you. The shuttle was there in about 20-25 mins (make sure to call
while you're waiting for your luggage to avoid waiting outside) and the hotel is
about 5 mi or so from the airport and takes 15-20 mins depending on traffic.
The upgraded King Suite given to me was clean and spacious. It had a separate
couch seating area along with a mini-fridge and microwave. No complaints about
the room. Breakfast is very limited and akin to what you see at HIX around the
The hotel is right next to a sports hockey rink, along with a movie theater and
couple restaurants. If you want to get to the city, you can have the shuttle
drop you back to the airport or the nearest Bridgeport Canada Line station from
where you can easily take the train to the city.
They do require advance reservation for the shuttle to take you back to the
airport/train station and the shuttle only runs every hour. This is somewhat an
issue depending on what time you need to get back to the airport and/or last
minute sightseeing plans.

We were lucky enough to stay at this fine property and even more lucky to have
Ella take care of our every need. My son and his hockey team were in a
tournament in November 2015 and this hotel is steps away from the rink. The team
had a wonderful time and everyone was impressed with how well this hotel handled
our entire stay. Great pool, lots of restaurants and other activities close by
and just a short drive from a few malls. Loved it!! Thanks so much Ella and The
Holiday Inn and Suites Riverport. The rooms were all new and wonderful layout as

This Holiday Inn Express Suites Riverport hotel is clean, safe, modern and the
staff extremely competent and friendly. Check in was quick, business center 2
computers, free wifi, close to a shopping center and cinema as well as iMax.
Shuttle service to and from the airport excellent with some of the best drivers
I've ever encountered. I stayed her at the beginning of a trip and then when I
came back before flying out. The hotel is 14 miles from the airport and many
sites would make you believe it is next door to the airport so it takes around
20 minutes to get to the airport. Good breakfast and again very friendly

Came here after recommendations.. I was not disappointed but found the rooms
very dark.. especially the bathrooms.. I found it hard to shave as I needed more
light..., my lady also commented about the illumination throughout the rooms..
but we managed...
the breakfast (included) had a good variety and very satisfied. The staff was
helpful and great to deal with.

We stayed here two nights in a king suite - mostly due to lack of rooms
available. The Holiday Inn Express Suites Riverport suite was beautiful and well
appointed, but pricy! The pool area is beautiful and also well-kept, and the
fitness area looked the same. They even have a basketball court, which seems
like a strange offering but if you enjoy that, then this is a plus for you. The
breakfast offered a variety of things, but even with two rooms for overflow, the
staff seemed at a loss to keep up with replenishing things. Both mornings, they
were completely out of yogurt when I arrived, and were out of boiled eggs the
second morning as well. It's a busy area but nice decor. Staff was friendly and
helpful, although our room wasn't ready when we arrived, even though it was
after 3 pm. They initially offered to text when the room was ready but when I
explained our car was full to the hilt and we couldn't really go anywhere
without unloading, they found us another suite that was ready. The Holiday Inn Express Suites Riverport
hotel wasn't a bad drive from Vancouver if that's where you are headed, but do
know that you will absolutely need a car - it's a good 25 minutes from downtown
