Our take...

The Hampton Inn Vancouver Airport Hotel is located just minutes away from Vancouver International Airport. This hotel is only a short walk from the Canada Line, and is on a major bus route. The newer building offers many barrier free design features that appeal to persons with physical disabilities. There are three accessible rooms available. One handicap parking spot can be found in the Parkade at the side of the building. A gradual ramp with a smooth surface and hand railings leads to the power door at this entrance. The lobby is a spacious room that is easy to roll across and has strong colour contrast between the tile flooring and walls. There is a fairly open eating area in the lobby. A new Buffet area featuring a free continental breakfast has been renovated at the end of 2011. On the third floor there is a gym area that is accessible. Signage is clearly written in larger fonts with strong colour contrast and essential signage is in braille and tactile format. Elevators lead from the lobby to accessible rooms. The elevator has lit buttons with braille. Accessible rooms come equipped with lowered peepholes and closet rods. Beds are approximately 25 in. from the ground, allowing easy access from wheelchairs. Washrooms are spacious and offer strong colour contrast between floors and walls, bath benches with grab bars and detachable showerheads. Toilets are raised and have grab bars. Sinks have clearance and lever handled water control. Rooms also come with volume control telephones, Closed Captioning televisions and alert kits. Room numbers are clearly visible and marked in braille and black on gold tactile lettering. Stairways are clearly marked and have slip resistant surface, handrails and tactile and visual warnings. The hotel also features wireless internet access throughout. The Hampton Inn Vancouver Airport rests in the bustling business and tourist section of Richmond. It is minutes from parks, beaches, restaurants and shopping centers in the center of Richmond. As a bonus, the Hampton Inn is within walking or wheeling distance from the ever-active River Rock Casino, which is attached to the Bridgeport Station, and the Canada Line.
