Its name doesn’t even say it all: Silver Reef is much more than a hotel, casino and spa. It’s a 24-hour adult playground that blends luxury accommodations, daily relaxation, live entertainment, sumptuous cuisine and much more. Stay onsite all day – all vacation – and you won’t get bored once at our No. 1 pick.

The warm colors and rich, leather furniture of the lobby will set the tone as soon as you set foot into the Silver Reef. You’ll wake up each morning and the hardest thing you’ll have to do is pull yourself from the plush bedding to get to your spa appointment. Then, it might take some mental work to decide on which of the four restaurants to dine at. Wash down your 24 oz. porterhouse with a local wine, or spice up your taste buds with some Asian flavors? But basically, the Silver Reef is a place to go when you need to just get away. Close to both Vancouver, BC, and Seattle, it’s the perfect hideaway with all the right indulgences: try your luck at the 24-hour casino, featuring 40 varieties of video slots and tons of Vegas-style table games.
