WEEKEND SPECIAL: What can you do with an extra $25?

Go crazy, have fun, because we love having you here

There’s been so many times that you had to pass up an opportunity to see a show just ’cause you had to go home early. Perhaps you didn’t want to go through the hassle of commuting or driving after a crazy night you just had? Is going home right after an adrenaline-filled night such a bummer, that you’d rather not put yourself through it?

Say hello to the Hampton Inn Vancouver Airport’s WEEKEND SPECIAL.

The Weekend Special allows River Rock Casino event attendees to get $25 off our Best Available Rate. Just simply present the show’s tickets at the time of check in.

$25 off means…

  • extra money to buy that concert souvenir you’ve been salivating to get your hands on
  • more fun times to last the evening with your pals, gals, or special someone
  • pocket money to get a chance at your luck on River Rock’s slot machines
  • bulk items to buy from our neighbour, Costco
  • lunch the next day at nearby restaurants
  • comfort of staying in a cozy Richmond hotel near downtown Vancouver, the airport, and of course the event you’re going to this weekend at the River Rock

What else can you use that extra $25 for?

The Hampton Inn Vancouver Airport is a one-minute drive away from the River Rock Casino, and the Canada Line station, Bridgeport Station.

Change is good.

The difference between our old and new curtains!

Hello 2011!

People usually say that change is good. And this time, we definitely agree.

With renovations on their way early this year, we’ve decided to start the change with our curtains!

What do you think of our new curtains?

As we go along, more changes will be happening in the hotel–from the lobby, the fitness room, the business centre, and of course, the rooms.

We will keep you posted on what’s being renovated next (the carpets are on their way!), but we’d like to reassure you that one thing will not change—the fact that we love having you here.
