Hilton Vancouver Airport
Ask anyone to name the three most famous hotel chains in the world, and odds are the name Hilton is going to be on that shortlist. The Hilton name represents a tradition of top quality, great value hotel accommodation. People booking a room at the Hilton know in advance they won’t be disappointed with their hotel—the Hilton name alone assures them they can rest easily, literally, and the Hilton Vancouver Airport Hotel carries on this tradition.
Just three miles from Vancouver International Airport, the AAA Hilton Airport Hotel stands tall in the heart of Richmond, just 20 minutes from downtown Vancouver. Hilton guests arriving at what has recently been named the “Best Airport in North America” can get to the Hilton in about five minutes via the hotel’s complimentary shuttle bus service.
