I spent the weekend at the Westin Grand. I was pleasantly surprised by how friendly and professional the staff were, and the quality and cleanliness of the room.
It is walking distance to all the downtown restaurants, a block or so to the busy Granville street night-life and a short walk to both the BC Place stadium (home of the BC Lions and many other shows) and Rogers Arena (home of the Vancouver Canucks and many concerts). There are two grocery stores within a half a block, plus unlimited number of restaurants (both fast food and sit-down). Other Vancouver sites and experiences are just a quick bus ride away.
The building is very nice and upscale. I was impressed by the speed in which I got my room and the front clerk was very friendly. I could sense that she enjoyed working there. I received a friendly smile from every employee that worked there.
The room had a fridge, microwave, dishwasher and utensils (I never used any of them) and a small living room with a hide-a-bed and large LCD TV. just off of the living room was a small hallway with the bedroom on one side and the bathroom on the other. The bathroom had a shower and separate bathtub. The shower was amazing with two shower-heads!
The bedroom had a cordless phone, large screen LCD TV and the most comfortable bed I have slept in on my trips to Vancouver. They include a body pillow for extra comfort.
Overall, a great place to stay and my new favourite hotel in Vancouver.
