Canada Vancouver Hilton Vancouver Airport YVR

You know how many airports now have those Consolidated Rent-A-Car facilities? The phenomenon that has forced millions of air travelers to pay double for rent-a-cars? I digress. But the YVR Hilton is similar to the consolidated rent-a-car facility in that there are three airport hotels tucked into one city block of Richmond, British Columbia. The Hilton, Sheraton, and Marriott YVR Airport hotels share a common parking garage and (free) airport shuttle service. The Marriott and Hilton are situated in identical, mirror-image buildings.

Nothing unusual about this Hilton: Restaurant, lounge, room service 24H. Coffeemaker. Local YVR & SEA TV channels plus basic cable. Pay-per-view movies. Pool (outdoor, seasonal, heated to 85F), jacuzzi (indoor), exercise room, all 9A-10P; tennis courts; meeting facilities. Mandatory pay parking, $14; pay internet, $8 (as with all "full service" hotels, the more you pay the less you get.) Rooms are not well soundproofed and you'll hear airplane noise. Convenient access to rooms from parking garage.

The outdoor postage-stamp size pool is adjacent to the top floor of the parking structure. I didn't realize the Hilton jacuzzi was indoors and set out across the roof of the parking garage and encountered another postage-stamp pool and outdoor jacuzzi, presumably belonging to the Marriott. The sign said "registered hotel guests only," but it didn't say which hotel! The Hilton postage-stamp pool is about 5 degrees warmer than that of the Marriott.

The Richmond, BC neighborhood is chock full of amazing Chinese restaurants, throw a tennis ball in any direction and you'll hit one. 2 blocks from large shopping mall and from rail transit line.
