Fodor's Review

Beside Stanley Park, the Westin Bayshore has the marina on its doorstep, as well as impressive harbor and mountain views. Most rooms take full advantage of the location with floor-to-ceiling windows that open to a railing or a step-out balcony. Interiors are cheery and comfortable, with plush armchairs and comfortable beds. The only downtown resort hotel, the Bayshore is also rich with recreational opportunities, including fishing charters, sightseeing cruises, and poolside

yoga. Vancouver's Seawall Walk connects the resort to Stanley Park and the convention center.

A resort hotel in Downtown Vancouver!

Beautiful viws of Coal Harbor from every window and Heavenly Beds in rooms make this a great place to stay. Sea Wall Restaurant has great lunches with a waterside view.

Dirty!

Paid extra for a tower room...Deck was very dirty, rusty, and tiny (under 1 foot of clearence from door to rail), lobby in tower is old, and needs a facelift. Elevators are more like time machines, set to 1975, and the hallways are old, and painted in a dingy yellow colour. this is so strange becasue the main lobby, and main part of the hotel is so clean and modern. The only good things were the friendly and smart staff (excluding friendly, but clueless

consierge), haevenly shower head, and heavenly bed, but the worst thing was how i saw on the shower curtain "designed for use in hotels and motels", and just feet away, being sold for about 100$ as "the heavenly shower curtain", after reading MOTELS on the label. I will not stay here again, and will go to the Fairmont!

A 40$ flight to heaven

after paying 40$ extra/night for a harbour view, floor to celieng windows, and a deck, in the tower, I was not let down, and hardly wanted to leave this magnificent hotel.

Not much works and don't plan to drink away your blues

The remote on the T.V. in addition to the hairdryer, were broken. Like in an old Holiday Inn, we heard water for the showers in other rooms (very early in the morning)running through the pipes. A glass (not a pint)of Stella Artois cost $12.00! The hotel claims this outrageous price is due to Stella being an imported beer. However, if you go to a liquor store, you will see that the price of Stella is very close to that of domestic beers. The hotel

seems too big and too busy to provide the type of rooms and service the prices envision.

Nice, but certainly nothing special

Having stayed at most major hotels in Vancouver, I was excited to stay at the Bayshore. However, I found the rooms to be small, and nothing out of the ordinary. No complaints at all, but certainly nothing special.

4 star hotel, 2 1/2 star rooms

I must disagree with previous postings. The rooms here are small and bathrooms tiny. The tower rooms are 20% larger but still nothing out of the ordinary. If you get a tower room, ask to face north or east for best views. The lobby and conference center are newer, the decor in the hallways is a little dated. Great location, great indoor and outdoor pool. Keep expectations modest as it pertains to rooms. This Westin does not offer the "Heavenly Bed"

perk at this time.

Westin Bayshore is the Gem of Vancouver

What a beautiful hotel. Outstanding rooms with spectacular views of the harbour. You can watch seaplanes land amidst the cruise ships headed for Alaska. The food here is delicious and the service in all areas of the hotel is absolutely fantastic. The bellstaff is informative and attentive. The front desk staff is friendly and quick to respond when large groups arrive. The housekeeping department does a great job keeping up with the high traffic

volume. Hotel has recently completed a multi-million dollar renovation and addition of the conference center makes this property even more desirable. It's close to Stanley Park and there is lots to do in the area. I recommend the hotel and intend on returning. Ask for a tower, harbour view room and you will be rewarded!
