An occasional trip gives travellers new perspective, from having time to evaluate personal goals to seeing the earth from a new angle during poolside cannonballs. Embark upon life's new journeys with today's Groupon: for $139, you get a one-night stay package for two at The Hotel at River Rock in Richmond (up to a $284 value). The package includes:
- A one-night stay in a standard city room (up to a $249 value)
- $25 dining credit
- $10 casino credit
A AAA four-diamond casino resort, River Rock welcomes wayfarers into its four-storey lobby, where ponds and waterfalls open onto deluxe accommodations and a 70,000-square-foot casino. Opening October 17, The Hotel at River Rock lodges sojourners in standard city rooms outfitted with one king- or two queen-sized beds that catch and humanely release dreams from the depths of Serta Perfect Sleeper mattresses and their cashmere pillow tops. The $25 dining credit procures nourishment at 10 dining outlets including OpenTable's 2011 Diners' Choice winner Tramonto as well as Curve Lounge, boasting fire pits that face the marina on the Fraser River. Gamers ignite at the casino, toting their $10 casino credits to more than 900 slot machines, 14 poker tables, or off-track betting in hopes of bringing home a new pony. Further diversions range from restorative treatments at Absolute Spa (not included in this offer) to live music at the 125-seat Lulu's Lounge, where guests can unwind and show no mercy to helpless cocktails.
