Starlight Casino New Westminster

Oh boy, Nicole and I had some really great times here. The staff is very friendly, and since we were new to the area, they gave us many recommendations for places in the Vancouver area. Match was good when we went for cheap wing night. I most definitely miss living just down the street from starlight

Great dim sum and dinner place. Weekend will be very busy during lunch time. Suggest to make reservation.
Food quality is great. One if the best in town.
While it wont break your wallet it is a slightly more high end dim sum place where the price reflects the quality.
Expect to pay a little bit more but still affordable dim sum.

well lit, friendly people who are willing to help you out, not crowded – can be noisy if you cannot change the volume on the slot machine you are using but a fun place with entertainment, gambling, food and a small shop

We’ve been to several concerts and comedy shows here and find the venue is smaller compared to some but gives a more intimate experience with the performers. We’ve seen Tom Cochrane, Bonny Raite, B-52s to mention a few and all have been a great experience. We definitely always consider going here.

I am thoroughly impressed by how clean our room was. It may be one of the cleanest hotels I’ve stayed in.

We had a room in the hotel tower on the 8th floor that looked toward the sky train tracks. I travel with ear plugs but honestly even without them, the noise wasn’t that loud. I heard a few planes but that was okay as well.

The bed was very comfortable but the pillows were huge and too firm. They would be fine as bolsters. Not pillows. I think a chiropractor would be horrified to see anyone sleeping on something so large

There were no windows that opened. I would have loved a fresh breeze to come in. Their was no extraction fan in the bathroom. That was odd. And it took a long time for the mirrors to clear up after a shower.

The shower was lovely. Great pressure but the hot water in the bathroom was certainly above a safe level for the elderly or babies. Shockley hot. As adults though, this wasn’t a big concern for us.

So why only three stars?

Apart from the lack of an opening window and extraction fan, the staff at the front desk in the hotel seemed to have an odd attitude. Almost as though it was a bother for them to assist me. Simple things – I went to ask for the parking code. I was given it coldly. Upon checking out, the encounter was bland. Very bland. No questions about how my stay was. No “Thanks so much for coming — please be sure to come again”. They should honestly contact the Magnolia Hotel in Victoria. The front desk staff there are honestly excited to interact with their guests. They smile. Such a simple thing. A smile. I interacted with three or four River Rock front desk staff. All bland and no smiles or nice small talk.

We had breakfast at the buffet. The waffles were tasty as was the fresh fruit. But much else was bland. To be fair, perhaps the Chinese food at the buffet was good — I didn’t try it.

There was a selection of muffins, yogurts, cereal… but not a lot that would make it worth paying for. Again I’d use the word ‘bland’ here.

The pool looked like fun. We didn’t use it though. Kids would love it.

Location wise, you don’t need a car as you can take the skytrain into Vancouver from the hotel as well as access the ferries and airport using the sky train.

We did have our car with us and the parking was frustrating to be sure! I think it would be a great idea for there to be parking directions in a conformation email. Simple to do. Parking was free which was good.

Overall, three out of five seems like a fair rating. The River Rock really needs to run some in-services with their staff on how to make guests feel like guests and not in-laws they’d rather not deal with.

I do hope the manager can congratulate the house keeping team on the 8th floor. They were amazing. Wow! They know how to clean thoroughly!

Would I return? Yes. That’s how much I appreciate a clean hotel.

We were at the Summit Theatre for a show last week and I found that the casino is looking kind of tired. Some of the cubicles in the bathroom near the theatre were not operational and the room had a smell. The carpeting in different areas of the casino looked like it needed to be replaced or at least cleaned.Staff were great though! But until there are some improvements, calling this a resort is a bit of a stretch.

The hotel was very clean, housekeeping always had things tidy and restocked each day. When I checked in, Jane was very thorough and gave me any information I might need regarding the room/amenities/area and was accommodating when I asked to be placed in a room away from the Sky Train.

I didn’t eat at the hotel; however, each morning I checked out the Java Cafe in the casino for coffee and it was great.

The hotel is within 10 minutes of the airport. The hotel is attached to the Sky Train station so commuting to downtown Vancouver (Yaletown, Waterfront) only takes 15 minutes. The SkyTrain was easy, clean and safe as well. I would highly recommend it.

We are currently occupying 2 suites at this property and could not be less impressed. We are here to celebrate my daughters birthday which was expressed many times prior to our arrival. We are used to staying at 5 star properties where at least a birthday is acknowledged, not here. We were also treated to an extremely unpleasant phone conversation with The Front Office Manager whom would not even give me her name when I inquired into moving to a suite closer to our daughter. Misinformation was obviously given to us which is why I called the Manager. To end this I am not sure why this Hotel is considered up market as the service is subpar and the suites are tired

Hard Rock Casino Coquitlam

I’ve visited Hard Rock Cafes and Casinos all around the world – collect the shirts and have a cocktail. This is the first time I have been completely disappointed! Firstly, why would they build it in the middle of an industrial area 30-odd km from Vancouver?? Even so, once you finally get there – why only have the Rock Shop only open between 3pm and 7pm??? Ridiculous- especially when you get there 10 minutes too late ☹️ The. It is a very limited cocktail list – served by grumpy staff!! Not happy

I prefer driving across the border because I’m a smoker and it’s always dirty in the smoking lounge outside. Dirty & crowded. And that’s the law – so no fault of the casino. The other reason is that I always have to leave my machine to get a drink. Servers seldom come around. And I usually tip well! One time I was doing well and did not want to leave – so I asked a worker that work by. He pointed one way and said oh there’s the cart over there – just go get one. The cart was sitting in the corner with nobody working on it. When I got there, The lady came walking over and asked me what I wanted. She was standing at the bar visiting. At Skagit – there’s always servers. Other then that – is give a higher rating.

Excitement galore in this beautiful facility. First class casino with an outstanding hotel. Convenient to the airport. Great dining in the entire complex

I’ve always enjoyed this casino especially since they built the hotel. There are a few drinking areas within the casino and hotel. You can have a bite to eat and relax when not gambling.

My husband and I went here while waiting for the buffet line to get a little shorter. There is a large selection of gaming machines, ranging from 1 cent, 5 cent, 25 cent, dollar, etc. It was very busy and we did notice some large winners, however we were not included with the winning group.

We were out for dinner at the newly opened Neptune Chinese Kitchen connected to the Hard Rock Casino. The food was great!

The buffet at the Hard Rock Casino was a nice find. The choices of food was awesome, even roast beef carved right in front of you, so tender, tasty. The service for drinks were good too.
