Vancouver Airport Marriott Hotel in Richmond, BC

That’s right you read the title correctly. The Vancouver Airport Marriott Hotel is in Richmond, BC. It’s a quirky thing that several Richmond hotels are not identified as hotels in Richmond, BC. Such is the case here with this lovely hotel stationed about a 10 minute drive from the Vancouver Airport. The Vancouver Airport Marriott Hotel in Richmond is the best of both worlds.

How is the Vancouver Airport Marriott Hotel the best of both worlds? Well, let me explain. It is close enough to the Vancouver Airport to make travel simple and convenient. A complimentary airport shuttle will take you back and forth from this busting international airport. Just look for the courtesy phone after you pick up your luggage.

Please note this hotel is right beside the Sheraton Vancouver Airport Hotel. It is conveniently located close to dozens of restaurants. In fact, from either the Sheraton or the Marriott, you can easily walk to and from many of the restaurants on The Dumpling Trail.

Make no mistake, both of these hotels are in Richmond, BC. They are about a 10 minute drive from the airport. Savvy travellers will opt to stay here because the price difference between Richmond restaurants and hotels is significant compared to those in Vancouver.



This past month I spent a few days in Richmond, BC while exploring the area a bit and doing The Dumpling Trail. The Richmond area has a vibrant food and culture scene which I honestly can’t say enough about. The Dumpling Trail is a self guided tour of the areas best Asian restaurants. While visiting Richmond, BC. I stayed at the Vancouver Airport Marriott Hotel.

The Vancouver Airport Marriott Hotel in Richmond, BC is clean and spacious. I have come to love the Marriott chain for their excellent service. They are an affordable, family friendly option, for all kinds of travellers. Upon checking in at the busy Marriott (pilots and flight attendants also stay here because it is less expensive than the Vancouver city hotels) I discovered a daily apple cider display on offer in the lobby. The March dates we visited Richmond were chilly and rainy so apple cider was PERFECT for taking the chill off.

Complimentary apple cider might not sound like much, but it is just one example of great service that has come to endear the Marriott chain to me world-wide. If you look a bit closer at the Marriott chains you will notice that very often they also boast world class award-winning restaurants on site. A few years ago I stayed at the Casa Magna Marriott Puerto Vallarta and wrote about the stay. In 2016 I stayed at Marriott Resort Hutchinson Island in Florida, which was gorgeous.

The Vancouver Airport Marriott hotel is tastefully decorated and clean. There is ample parking both outdoors and in a covered parking lot area.

I was in Richmond, BC for a foodie tour of The Dumpling Trail. I thought I knew about food before visiting Richmond. Turns out I knew very little about authentic Asian cuisine. If you love food, or want something unique to try this year on vacation consider staying in Richmond and doing the self guided Dumpling Trail. Dumplings are in many ways the original fast food.

The Vancouver Airport Marriott Hotel suite that I stayed in was well equipped with a large queen sized bed and a small mini bar fridge. The rooms also have a Keurig, which I appreciate in the mornings because it makes me feel at home.

When I first checked in and watched some airplanes coming and going I was a bit concerned that I’d have a noise issue at night. That couldn’t have been further from the truth. I didn’t hear any of the airplanes at night.

If you’re looking for a memorable trip and you love food, visit Richmond, BC. They have some of the most incredible and authentic Asian food and cultural experiences in Canada.

As a member of the International Food, Wine and Travel Writer’s Association, (IFWTWA) I was recently invited to do a media fam trip with Visit Richmond, BC. Their Dumpling Tour was the focus of the trip. My accommodations, flights, and food were paid for. My opinion is all my own and it is also truthful.
