New Package at the Vancouver Airport Marriott Hotel Promises a Whale of an Adventure

This Hotel Near Vancouver Airport May Be Under the Flight Path, but Its Focus Is on Sea Life

RICHMOND, BC -- (Marketwired) -- 04/28/14 -- Airport hotels have, generally speaking, a lot going for them, and the Vancouver Airport Marriott Hotel is no exception. Its luxurious range of guest rooms, exceptional dining and, of course, close proximity to the airport are all attractive qualities. But the property has distinguished itself once again among hotels near YVR Airport with its latest promotion, the "Experience Whale-Watching in Vancouver" package.

Designed to offer guests access to one of the area's most popular activities, the package includes deluxe accommodations at this Vancouver hotel near the airport, complimentary parking and a whale-watching adventure tour for two adults, courtesy of Vancouver Whale Watch.

Like most Richmond, BC hotels, this property has long directed curious visitors to the nearby town of Steveston for whale-watching excursions. Its latest package simply formalizes the relationship between the hotel and one of the most respected tour companies in town. Vancouver Whale Watch has shown visitors the majesty and diversity of humpback whales, killer whales and other sea life for 15 years aboard its expedition-style Zodiac boats. Its prime location near waters brimming with marine life, combined with its Professional Wildlife Guides, make each three- to five-hour journey an unforgettable one for passengers.

Before and after guests' adventure on the high seas, they will experience an adventure of another sort: that of a contemporary luxury hotel. Spa-inspired amenities in the granite bathrooms get visitors in the right state of mind for whale watching, while plush bedding, high-speed Internet access and 37-inch LCD televisions encourage travellers to settle in for long, pleasant stays. Unique among hotels in Richmond, BC, the property also boasts two on-site dining options, The American Grille and Lotus Land Lounge, whose award-winning menus ensure guests won't travel the seas on an empty stomach.

Rates for the Experience Whale-Watching in Vancouver package start at $359 per night with suites and deluxe guest rooms available. Package price is for two guests to go whale watching. For weekend stays, a two-night minimum stay is required. Travellers interested in booking the package, which is valid from May 1 through October 31, 2014, may use the promotional code ARN when making reservations.
