The Best Vancouver Casino Hotels
JW Marriott Parq Hotel
☆☆☆☆☆ | Area: Downtown | 39 Smithe St. | Skytrain: Yaletown or Stadium-Chinatown
If you’re looking to stay right in the heart of the city, the luxurious Parq Vancouver is where it’s at and it tops our list of the best Vancouver casinos.
If you’re looking for a boutique experience, this is it. The JW Marriott is one of the best hotels in Vancouver and its fresh tones and floor-to-ceiling windows will immerse you in the stunning Vancouver landscape.
While the world-class spa by JW and 24/7 fitness centre are ideal for a romantic getaway.
In all, you’ll have access to 8 top-class dining options, including Honey Salt’s local farm-to-table cuisine and the ultimate steak, sushi, and raw bar at The Victor.
Finally, the rooftop D/6 Bar & Lounge provides stunning views of the city.
Casino: 600 slot machines, 75 table games, poker room, high limit room.

River Rock Hotel
☆☆☆☆ | Area: Richmond | 8888 River Rock Blvd. | Skytrain: Bridgeport
This is a great option for those who are on the lookout for a Vancouver airport hotel (it’s actually 20 minutes from downtown) – in addition to an action-packed casino weekend.
As Western Canada’s only four-diamond casino resort, the Rock offers all of the comforts and amenities you’d expect.
Their bright, contemporary deluxe rooms and luxurious suites will allow you to celebrate a win, or sleep off a loss in comfort – not to mention their first-class pool, spa and fitness centre.
The hotel also includes four restaurants, two bars and a food court. The River Rock Show Theatre offers the very best in stand-up comedy, international touring musicians and more.
Casino: 1100 slot machines, table games, poker room, 71 stadium gaming terminals, high limit room.

Grand Villa Hotel
☆☆☆☆ | Area: Burnaby | 4331 Dominion St. | Skytrain: N/A
The Grand Villa (in the suburb of Burnaby) offers most of the amenities offered by the other Vancouver casino hotels, if at a slightly lower price point.
You’ll still find well-anointed rooms with modern decor and more than adequate food and beverage options.
However, the property simply lacks the high-end dining, fitness and spa facilities of its Vancouver and Richmond-based cousins. So a visit may not feel like as much of “an experience” – if that’s what you’re looking for.
So if you’re on the lookout for a boutique hotel pampering, you’d be better off hitting up the Parq. But if you’re simply looking for a more affordable visit with some slots playing – the Grand Villa will do just fine.
Casino: 1300 slot machines, 67 table games, BC’s biggest poker room, high limit room.
Coast Hotel Langley
☆☆☆ | Area: Langley | 20393 Fraser Hwy. | Skytrain: N/A
As a three-star property, it should come as no surprise that the Cascade’s adjoining Coast Hotel isn’t as prestigious as the other accommodations on our list.
But, the casino’s Spa Tru does provide a taste of the luxuries found elsewhere. The recently renovated rooms should be more than adequate – assuming you’re not looking for an Instagrammable getaway.
You’ll also find two restaurants, a buffet and the popular Glacier Bar for food and drinks. Nearby Downtown Langley also offers a large selection of typical suburban-style dining options.
Casino: 1001 slot machines, 28 table games, 5 poker tables, bingo hall, high limit room.
