Ask for a view of the bay! This Westin is in an amazing location and met the Westin expectations. I found the staff to be especially friendly here. The rooms were clean and nice. I was upgraded with my Spg gold status. The spa was great too. I would definitely recommend this hotel!

We're here for a conference with a few days as tourists tacked-on for good measure. It's our first time in Canada in fact and the friendliness of the locals and the hotel staff would certainly encourage us to return.

Room was great, view was fabulous and the location could not have been better. Easy walking distance to anything I needed, but let's talk about those breakfast prices! Holy toledo. It's a good thing there were lots of other options for breakfast close by.

We stayed here for one night in November with two other families (our first time to Vancouver so we really didn't know the area). It was a quick stay but a nice stay.

This is a great hotel to stay in for a Vancouver vacation. First of all, it has a very reasonable priced, compared to all the other hotels with the same rating. Second of all, it has a great location. It is right next to Cole Harbor and very close to downtown. Third of all, the rooms are comfortable. The rooms... More

I love the Bayshore hotel but the breakfast prices are crazy! $6.00 for toast? and no that's not for two pieces, that's per slice!! Come on folks, I know you have to make some money on food but this is criminal.

Lucky enough to have a double aspect room overlooking the bay and Stanley Park.

Suggest you choose a different hotel. My room challenges....room phone that doesn't work, nacho chips with mouldy cheese under the ottoman and a bath robe with dirty tissues and a room key in one of the pockets. Don't think I will ever wear another hotel bathrobe again.

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown
Vancouver's business district, the Downtown area is bustling with smartly-dressed folks balancing their lattes and briefcases to and from work. The area's plethora of contemporary commercial, residential, and corporate spaces has bred a landscape of nouveau restaurants, chain cafes, and upmarket shopping options. However, located right on the waterfront of Vancouver's energetic Harbour, Downtown is a also popular public meeting spot, with a massive public library and convention center attracting a bevy of visitors both local and not, as well as a hotspot for the arts, being home to some of Vancouver's most cutting-edge galleries. With behemoth architecture and a professional air, Downtown means business.
