One thing that has amazed me, even from our first trip here with the boys, is how much fun the boys get out of being in Hotels. Since our first two nights in YVR (Vancouver) needed be in Hotels (IKEA couldn’t deliver same day), we had two nights in two very different hotels.
The first night was downtown by Granville Island, in what was meant to be a posh place, but in reality it was just another hotel. Very nice, great view from the 14th floor. But the second was something else. After a long day at IKEA and with full bags, we were stopped outside the River Rock Casino Resort in Richmond (south of Vancouver) and I thought, what the heck, see if they have anything cheap.
Sure enough they did & not only that because they liked the boys they upgraded us to a 2 bedroom suite. Talk about posh. It was the nicer hotel I’ve ever stayed in. Not only were the rooms big, the beds were huge and the plushest bed I’ve ever slept in. They boys had their own massive double bed & their own TV. The resort had several restaurants to choose from, but the buffet was the best value. The boys love Buffet.
After dinner it was off the swimming pool with the boys. What a pool – right next to the health spa. There was a hot tub of course, but the pool was huge and had a big slide in it which Jamie just adored. So thanks River Rock Casino – I may very well come back to watch Three Dog Night in concert.
