Vancouver Airport Marriott unveils a reimagined traveler experience

The reimagined rooms offer a spacious and upgraded look complete with tailored solutions that are as inventive as its guests.

RICHMOND, BC – The Vancouver Airport Marriott unveiled its transformed guest experience that included new guest rooms, recently redesigned as a part of the ongoing reinvention of Marriott Hotels, the signature brand of Marriott International. The Vancouver Airport Marriott is one of numerous hotels within the brand’s portfolio across North America that is introducing this modern and sleek design. The unexpected look for the Marriott provides an elevated experience that today’s travelers want and need.

Located at 7571 Westminster Highway in Richmond, British Columbia, the hotel is less than six kilometers from Vancouver International Airport (the hotel operates a complimentary shuttle to and from) and 12 kilometers from downtown Vancouver. The property offers guests convenient access to the Richmond Centre Mall and the Richmond Olympic Oval.

“We want our guests to experience forward-thinking, aesthetically pleasing spaces that help foster their inventive nature,” said Matthew Carroll, vice president, Marriott Hotels. “Marriott Hotels has consistently pushed the boundaries of innovation in travel to create experiences that inspire and push our guests’ creativity. The Vancouver Airport Marriott has accomplished this and more and we know their guests will be thrilled.”

The reimagined rooms offer a spacious and upgraded look complete with tailored solutions that are as inventive as its guests. Based on consumer insights, locally-inspired accents offer a sense of place, closets are open to alleviate fears of leaving clothes behind and the work surface provides flexibility to freely move and use technology wherever the guest desires. Bathtubs have been replaced with deluxe walk-in showers and spa-like lighting to provide a relaxed and upgraded bath experience.

The Vancouver Airport Marriott features the Marriott Hotels Greatroom lobby – a stylish hub of the hotel that serves as a great social gathering place for both day and night. The contemporary decor and layout provide guests with a space to relax, collaborate with colleagues or grab a night cap. Guests can enjoy a variety of great food and drink options as well as seamless connectivity with free Wi-Fi and essential technology.

Along with the Greatroom, the hotel offers The M Club Lounge, an exclusive area reserved for Elite and Club paying members with perks including a range of complimentary food and beverage options featuring hot breakfast, evening drinks and hors d'oeuvres and premium beverages throughout the day. Accessible 24 hours a day, seven days a week, the M Club Lounge also offers free Wi-Fi, printing and power supplies to ensure uninterrupted productivity for business travelers.

The Vancouver Airport Marriott participates in the Marriott Hotels’ Signature Bourbon Program, an innovative on-property experience for guests and visitors featuring world-renowned bourbon brands, such as Maker’s Mark and Knob Creek, signature cocktails, pours, and locally-curated bourbon flights. The hotel’s certified bartenders provide guests with that elevated experience that includes advanced bar skills of storytelling and signature cocktails, as well as the deep knowledge of the history, production and types of bourbon.

Meeting planners have a lot to celebrate with Vancouver Airport Marriott’s Meeting Space that is tailored to foster collaboration. All meeting spaces include a flexible set up, able to adapt to a variety of formats and group sizes to ensure every team’s meeting space is perfectly suited to their needs.

Marriott Hotels brand is in the midst of a massive transformation, evolving everything from hotel design to associate training. The Vancouver Airport Marriott represents this evolution, echoing the sentiment that guests value personalized experiences and creativity. Last year, Marriott Hotels introduced delighted travelers with its mobile innovations global roll-out, its industry-pioneering two-way chat feature Mobile Request on the Marriott Mobile App. A first-of-its-kind partnership with Netflix in the summer of 2015 changed the future of in-room entertainment.
