Sheraton Vancouver Airport Review
Book the Sheraton Vancouver Airport here. The Sheraton Vancouver Airport Hotel is located about 15 minutes drive from the airport with the complimentary airport shuttle. The shuttle (and in fact parts of the building) are shared with a casino, the Marriott Vancouver Airport and the Hilton. It's actually in Richmond and the last stop of the Richmond SkyTrain is just a 10 minute walk away.
The building struck me as odd. It's not clear where the entrance is and it very much seems it's the result of multiple building extensions as business grew over the years. Once I found the Sheraton check-in, the process was super quick. I had used two Suite Night Award upgrades to secure an Executive Suite in advance. It cleared more than a week out. Reading other reviews though, it's very likely that the usual Platinum upgrade goes through as well. I used 3,500 Starpoints + $55 for each night. This gave me about 5 cents per Starpoint as room rates were around $150 for the time period. My suite was located directly next to the elevator doors, the ice machine and a busy intersection of the awkward building floors. I was about to turn around and request a different room, but once I entered, things changed - the suite was huge! 800+ square feet! The bathroom was certainly above North American standards with a large walk-in rain shower. The living room seemed a bit tired but was equally huge.
The bedroom seemed more modern (and more used) and was very quiet! To my astonishment it was so far from all the potential noise outside that I never heard a thing in two nights!
The hotel features a lounge on the 7th floor in the West Tower. It takes a bit of navigational skills to get there, but once there it features the typical snacks and coffee maker you may have seen somewhere else. I was hoping for some delicious pastries and coffee but things were just very average. If you have time (and the weather holds up) there is a nice-looking swimming pool in the courtyard. Not something I'd associate with Vancouver normally!
The SkyTrain takes you downtown in about 20 minutes, so you can even use the hotel for a city trip - though it's not ideal with its location. Rates downtown were peaking (with many hotels sold out) for the September weekend though. In conclusion, this is a solid hotel - above standards compared to most American airport hotels. The location makes it easy to get downtown as well. Book the Sheraton Vancouver Airport here. If you like this post - subscribe via email or follow us on Twitter.
