Although we live in metro Vancouver we treat ourselves to a night's visit to the Bayshore about once yearly. The Bayshore is ideally located in Coal Harbour, walking distance to the world famous Stanley Park and just a few steps away from many trendy restaurants. Prices are comparable to the Westin Seattle with valet parking costing just over CAD40 and... More

We have stayed at many westins in a few different countries, this one is pretty much the same as the other ones. Check in was quick & very nice. They respected my high floor request & gave us the top floor. Only had a small issue, BUT....they made up for it & then some, they did more then they actually... More

The Westin hosted my workplace Holiday Party so it only made sense to book a room in the hotel. I phoned in to book and the check in process that day was a breeze. I only stayed for one night but with that king-size bed, I'd sleep in it forever, it was so comfortable! Also the room looked very luxurious.... More

From the phenomenal staff to the brilliant amenities the Westin Bayshore is a must. Never have I met such friendly, helpful staff. The rooms are elegant and comfortable and the amenities - pool etc are luxurious. We loved every minute of our stay here. It is in a perfect location - close to everything you might want or need.

Dogs do not belong in hotels. They used to be banned for good reason. Allowing dogs at this hotel cheapens it. Otherwise, the service was good in the hotel. The breakfast buffet was really tasty with a good selection. Some people downtown were cranky due to the colder-than-usual (for Vancouverites LOL) weather. Overall, it was worth the special rate, but... More

We've stayed in various rooms at the Bayshore for several years - tower and low-rise. We love the convenience to Stanley Park, and restaurants in all directions are easily walked to within 10-20 minutes. The latest stay was in a king bed, tower room. The panoramic view of the harbour and mountains was breathtaking during the few sunny, clear moments... More

Was at the Westin for two nights; room clean and comfortable with the fantastic heavenly bed and pillows!! The view of Stanley Park, the city and mountains with the ocean, spectacular. There are only a handful of restaurants to see within walking distance, that said if you are a walker, you are only 20 minutes (along the sea wall) towards... More

This is a decent Vancouver hotel that is located outside of the downtown. As a result there are very few restaurants or anything else in the immediate area. The hotel is quiet - so a good sleep is pretty much guaranteed. Not bad for business - but i would not stay here if I was on vacation.
