Parq Vancouver from JW Marriot is a masterpiece that proudly sits in the middle of Vancouver’s vibrant urban entertainment district. The hotel is both massive and breathtaking. With a total of 329 palatial guest rooms including 3 luxury suites, 44 suites, and a beautiful two-floor villa, Parq Vancouver is a tourist’s best kept secret.
Essentially, the hotel is built into two complexes – the DOUGLAs and the Autograph Collection Hotel. If you can make the cash splash, you’ll have access to world-class accommodation amenities including a 72,000 square feet of casino space complete with 11 private gaming salons, a massive rooftop park, over 60,000 square feet of eye-catching and well-maintained event and meeting space, and a total of 8 restaurants headed by some of the leading names in the culinary industry.
La Quinta Inn
Conveniently located at the heart of Vancouver’s “Food Street” is another gambler’s precious gem – La Quinta Inn by Wyndham Vancouver Airport. Apart from being a stone throw away from the Vancouver International Airport, the hotel has everything a gambler covets. For starters, it offers its guests a perfect opportunity to enjoy the western Canada outdoors – natural beauty, entertaining museums and theatres, skiing, incredible food, thriving art scene, and perhaps an electric festival. When you want to gamble the night away, you’ll be spoilt for options. Even if you can’t make it the grand Hard Rock Casino in Coquitlam, you can find your way to the River Rock Casino Resort and you won’t be disappointed.
River Rock Casino Resort
A few minutes from the lively Richmond Night Market and within three miles of the Richmond Center Mall, River Rock Casino Resort offers gamblers convenience and fine living. The resort has a total of 396 state-of-the art rooms all with a 24-hour quality service, iPod docks, and premium bedding. When you aren’t busy exploring the nearby VanDusen Botanical Garden or the Aberdeen Centre, walk around the magnificent hotel and spend time playing poker at the hotel’s casino, having a massage at the spa or swimming the afternoon away at the indoor pool. While at the River Rock Casino, be sure to hop into Tramoto (one of the three restaurants at the resort), for a taste of heaven. Other amenities here include a marina, a spa tub, and a 24-hour fitness center.
Pan Pacific Vancouver
Pan Pacific Vancouver is a 4-star pristine luxury hotel located 5 minutes from the Vancouver Convention center and a few steps from the Canada place cruise ship terminal. Trade your dollars for some of the best that life has to offer at the Pan before hoping out for some gaming fun. The oasis offers a wellness spa, a heated pool, sauna, lounge, and restaurant. The ridiculously inviting rooms each with a walk-in shower, a 42” flat screen TV, a coffee maker, a minibar and pet-friendly services is the icing on the cake. Pam Pacific doesn’t have a casino on site but a quick drive will land you in Hard Rock Casino located in Coquitlam or the River Rock Casino Resort right there in Coal Harbor.
Even though gambling can be immersive and addictive, responsible gamblers know how to draw the line between business and play. Once you collect your boatloads of money at the casino, explore the world a little. There is just no better way of doing this than booking a stay in a gambler-friendly hotel!
