The Westin Wall Centre Vancouver Airport is located in the center of the bustling city of Richmond, BC. Conveniently 4km from Vancouver International Airport and close to Richmond's lively shopping and business sectors keeps you close to everything.

Out of all the airport hotels I have experienced, the Westin YVR is among my favourites.
The hotel was located 10 minutes from the YVR, and although shuttle was suspended, they were providing taxi vouchers. Daniella helped me with check-in and our chat was very pleasant and informative. She was also very accommodating when I had to store my luggage for a few days as my aircraft was overweight.
I was offered a corner room and the amount of natural light the massive floor-to-ceiling windows let in was awesome. The Westin heavenly bed did not disappoint either, and the overall modern and sleek design was attractive to me. My only complaint - the room felt quite damp and the A/C did not do a great job getting rid of the humidity. As a result the bedsheet and duvet felt a little sticky which was not ideal.
I was pleasantly surprised when I learned that the hotel was offering hot food in the restaurant in lieu of afternoon hors d'oeuvre in the lounge when it's closed for COVID - most hotels don't bother. I got to enjoy their soup of the day as well as a nice made-to-order salad - much better than your typical lounge offerings I'd say. Breakfast was also offered in the restaurant and was also made to order, quality of food was also great.
All things considered I am very happy with what this hotel delivered during my short stay. This will be my go-to for my next trip into/out of/connecting through YVR.
good hotel to stay

the staff is friendly, the rooms are much newer than wall centre sheraton. however the breakfast selection is a bit less than sheraton. overall the stay was quite enjoyable. the location isn't the greatest as it isn't walkable to anywhere. You would have to have a vehicle to go into core richmond. but it was a pleasant stay.
