Plenty of on-site entertainment
Recent guests say the accommodations need to be updated
Complete with indoor waterfalls, the lobby at River Rock Casino Resort is the entry point to abundant amenities and buzzing nightlife. With multiple eateries and a lively lounge, guests rarely need to leave the premises. A 21,000-square-foot theater is also found on site, along with the Absolute Spa, which caters to serenity-seekers with a versatile selection of massages, facials and other body treatments. The casino is open all night, and sleeping in shouldn't be a problem; guests rave about River Rock's plush bedding (though some do caution that the thin walls do not effectively block out disruptive nighttime noise). Still, guests assure you can expect a pleasant stay overall thanks to the hotel's covetable amenities like in-room Nespresso machines, flat-screen TVs and complimentary Wi-Fi access (although some guests complain the internet connection is slow). Another big draw for travelers is the resort's convenient location just 3 miles east of Vancouver International Airport (YVR) and right on the SkyTrain's Canada Line. In addition, if you're a member of I Prefer Hotel Rewards, you can rack up points here.

Critic Reviews



With its soaring ceilings, natural stone and wood finishes, and curved escalators, the multistory lobby feels like a contemporary mountain lodge, although the activities here include British Columbia's largest casino, an expansive indoor pool, and a 1,000-seat theater decorated with one of the world's biggest disco balls.

Lonely Planet


Ideal for gamblers or people with an early plane to catch, this slick Richmond casino hotel is a handy 10-minute Canada Line train hop from the airport (Bridgeport station).



Less expensive than many high-end downtown Vancouver hotels, this upscale property offers a genuine (though somewhat Las Vegas-like) resort experience. Ideal for travelers of all sorts – business, international, couples, or families – this place has it all.



The beautiful one-bedroom suites with custom made mattresses and luxury bedding include high tech features and amenities. When you do get up, you can work out in the state-of-the-art fitness center where the jetted lap pool adds extra appeal.
