Pier 73 at the Delta Airport Hotel

Pier 73 (Delta Hotel Airport)I was invited to the re-opening of Pier 73, the restaurant of the Delta Airport Hotel. I have previously reviewed Delta Hotels’ restaurants, for example, I took CB to Manhattan earlier this year, for brunch. But this time, I wanted to check Pier 73 at the Delta Airport Hotel in Vancouver, and even though I had to attend the 70′s-themed launch party on my own I was glad I made it, as I got to bump into my friends Jay Minter and Mijune Pak.

The Delta Vancouver Airport is situated in a beautiful garden setting on the banks of the Fraser River with a 138-slip Marina. Only 20 minutes from downtown Vancouver and on the doorstep of the Vancouver International Airport, this waterfront property is an oasis for all travellers. Cycle or take a leisurely stroll on the more than 20 kilometres of riverside trails that connect to the hotel.

PIER 73 Restaurant is a great destination for casual lunch meetings, relaxed dinner gatherings, or evening drinks with friends. With floor to ceiling windows and a magnificent view of the Fraser River and North Shore Mountains PIER 73 offers an eclectic yet comfortable menu. Located behind the hotel and suspended above the Fraser River in the heart of a 138-slip Marina, PIER 73 is a popular spot to take in the beautiful West Coast Sunsets after a long day of travelling or meetings.

This is what the hotel looked like back then.

I’m grateful I got an invite to check out Pier 73 and I am also very happy to know that there is at least some transit coverage that increases accessibility by bus and Canada Line. You have to get off at the Bridgeport Canada Line station, and then take the community shuttle C92. It’s my understanding that the Delta Airport Hotel also has a shuttle to Bridgeport Canada Line station but don’t trust me on that one yet.

I agree, it was a very nice reception and introduction to Pier 73!
Great to bump into friends and meet new ones too.

I was surprised to see the signage transition from Elephant & Castle to Pier 73 a while back – never knew a change was afoot. Marnie & I will have to check it out at some point considering we live in Steveston and all.
