Accent Inns Richmond B.C.

Often when I travel, it is a mixture of business and pleasure so it is always nice to find a hotel that offers the resources to work, with the comfort and escapism needed to fully relax and enjoy time off.

One such place is the Accent Inns Airport Hotel in Richmond B.C. Located close to the airport and several bars and restaurants, the hotel is a comfortable place for travelers to stay for both business and leisure.

The spacious front room included a work desk, phone, chairs, as well as the usual couch and table.

A door separated the front room from the hallway that lead to the bathroom and bedroom. The bedroom was very comfy and also included a television as well as closet space and a clock radio and telephone.

The hotel paid attention to little details like including a fire extinguisher in the room, as well as stocked cupboards that included pots, pans, flatware, cups, and more to allow guests to cook from their unit.

Our first night in the hotel was restful as we picked up dinner from an adjacent restaurant and relaxed in the room as we watched television as we enjoyed dinner.

Since the Accent Inns offers free internet access as well as access in the lobby as well as a flight check in terminal, we were able to obtain information we needed for our weekend such as directions, schedules, and e-mails.

We spent our Saturday shopping in Vancouver, before spending the day and scenic Stanley Park, where after taking in the sites of the vast park, we capped the afternoon by taking the Bright Lights Holiday Train and enjoyed a dazzling array of lights and music that set the tone for the holidays.

After a full day we relaxed on the couch and watched television as we dined and contemplated the hot tub that was offered by the hotel, but instead ventured out to see more of the city before settling in for the evening.

The room also included free local calls and pay per view movies and games. Simply put, this was one of the most enjoyable stays I have ever had and the versatility of the hotel to handle both my business and tourism needs was superior to most hotels including the more posh hotels with very high rates that say they cater to business guests but nickel and dime you for everything from calls to net access.

We look forward to our next visit to what is quickly becoming one of our favorite places to stay in Vancouver B.C. For more information, please visit them online at
