How to Get There
We stayed at The Westin for 1 night prior to departing on an Alaskan cruise and on our return to Vancouver we checked in for 2 nights.
The location is lovely, very peaceful, right on the water, close to Stanley Park and the view from the room was spectacular. We stayed in tower 3 and on both occasions and had water views.
Andrew at reception was very friendly and provided us with information on how to maximise our time in Vancouver which was very helpful.
The ladies working the breakfast shift at H2 Rotisserie on 21 & 22 May were friendly and engaging. We could not fault the service.
The room was spacious, had a balcony and a very comfortable king sized heavenly bed. In the bathroom there was no body wash which we are used to seeing when we stay at other Westin properties. The air conditioning on the last night was making loud bursts of noise every so often like it needed to be serviced. This was quite annoying especially in the middle of the night.
The hallways on the floor are in need of some maintenance as they look a bit shabby.
The facilities are great, a decent fitness studio and an indoor and heated outdoor pool. The hotel even offers bikes to guests which are complimentary for two hours which is ample time to cycle around the Seawall of Stanley Park.
A very spacious and modern ground floor area with multiple dining options.
The hotel is approx a 20 minute walk to downtown.
A great option if you want to stay outside downtown but close enough to walk or catch a bus.
Stayed here before getting on our Alaska cruise, we stayed four nights but wished we had stayed more, we had a lovely view over the Harbour,Stanley Park and Grouse Mountain. The hotel is very central right next to Stanley Park and with in walking distance to all the major sights, we walked right around Stanley Park sea wall, walked to Gas Town and Grenville Market, there’s an indoor and outdoor swimming pool, staff are very helpful and friendly, and only a short 5 minutes walk and you have restaurants and supermarkets, would highly recommend this hotel
This is a hotel near Stanley Park and the harbor. It is relatively clean, the room was serviced daily and it had a great view.
The bar: They have a great sound system on the patio, but it has a very corporate feel. We were out there on a beautiful evening. The staff was just being run ragged. They could not stop and talk except to take a rushed order. It made me feel very uncomfortable. They seemed to be watched by management to make sure they didn't chit chat...it felt like a dystopian place to work. Uncomfortable employees = Uncomfortable customers.
The other thing is the prices in the bar/patio area. Ridiculous. For red wine, they had two choices, a 5 oz and 9 oz. The cheapest for 5 oz was like 18! For 9 oz it was like $22! That was the cheapest! We ordered a couple Stellas on tap. Then they brought us out the "Happier Hour" menu -- better prices of 5 oz of lousy wine at $5 CDN a glass! But 5 oz? I have not seen that anywhere. Why 5, not 6 or 7? Is an extra oz or two going to kill you? What finance person made this bad decision? People want value.
I understand there is a cost to running a place like this, and don't mind paying a little more, but I don't want to be gouged. This place just seems to be run by ruthless management who wants to drive the employees into the ground and gouge the customers for every last penny they can.
All that said, the hotel is relatively clean. They offer free bikes for 2 hours, and the bicycle staff, in particular a guy who's name sounded like Gregor? seemed to be good. Also, Todd the bellman was good.
Down the street is a great little find for breakfast called the Broken Bean, just a hole in the wall that the locals go to. Loved that place!
The concierge did not recommend good places. They recommended Lift and Cardero, two places near by. Both had uninspiring service and very high prices. We found much better restaurants on our own, amazing places with a local flare, better prices and better service. In general, avoid where the tourists go. The concierge seems to send people to really mundane places that have no soul and are just standard stuff.
Stanley Park is beautiful...suggest taking the bikes for an hour or two and riding around. You'll love it!
Had our wedding out of the Westin Bayshore, with photos and ceremony in the nearby parks (Cardero & Marina Square). We were overjoyed with the suite provided (Howard Hughes) which was shown to us in advance and recommended by the Marketing Manager, Danielle. It was perfect to host family after and we were all in awe of the view from both patios day and night. Thank you to the staff and especially Danielle for providing us a wonderful experience!
A park like location on the water. Very helpful staff, great cocktails and restaurant. Very modern rooms, great outdoor pool, efficient valets, great housekeeping and everyone so friendly. Will definitely stay again!
