Book a stay at our Richmond hotels to taste the flavors of Asian cooking in the Golden Village and feel the sea breezes in quaint Steveston village.
As a guest at our hotels in Richmond, you can easily visit historic Steveston village, home to Canada’s largest fishing fleet. From the village wharf, book a whale-watching tour for the whole family between spring and autumn to comb nearby waters for majestic orcas. Stroll the Steveston boardwalk past fishing boats laden with the day’s catch and snack on classic fish n’ chips at a wharf-side stand. The boardwalk ends at the Garry Point Park waterfront, Richmond’s most serene spot to watch the sunset. Our Richmond hotels are also near the Olympic Oval, the speed-skating venue for the 2010 Winter Games. Trace the rink on your rented skates and imagine the roar of the crowd as you round each turn. A quick SkyTrain ride connects you to Vancouver, British Columbia’s buzzing metropolis surrounded by mountains and ocean.
Our Richmond hotels are near the Golden Village, a cluster of hundreds of reasonably priced Asian restaurants and shops in Richmond’s center. Indulge in dozens of different cuisines, from Chinese dim sum to Japanese hot pot. On summer weekends, feast on dumplings and bubble tea at the lively Richmond Night Market. Walk off your meal in the Golden Village shopping malls, where you can consult a Chinese herbalist or buy kitschy Japanese stationery. Our hotels in Richmond are also close to the Buddhist Kuan Yin Temple. Its peaceful buildings and meditation gardens are reminiscent of the Chinese countryside.
Stay in our Holiday Inn® Richmond hotels in British Columbia to enjoy the colorful fireworks and dragon dances of Chinese New Year in January or February, or traditional salmon barbecue at Steveston’s Salmon Festival in July.
