“Nice”
Reviewed June 26, 2013

We are at this hotel right now waiting to board our cruise ship to Alaska. Very nice rooms. Excellent wifi. Fast elevators. Very limited wine selection in the bar is our only complaint. Excellent buffet breakfast. From our room You can see the air taxi pontoon planes taking off in the harbor. Starbucks on site.

Room Tip: Nice walk ways along the waterfront.

Vancouver, my last destination on my vacation to Alaska, and Canada. I only wish I had more time to see all the marvels this city have to offer.This is a city that deserves several days to admire. Best of all it's people are so hospitable. I was given a room, with wall to wall and ceiling to floor views of the bay, park and skyline. Very large rooms. The best rest in this so comfortable bed, and luxurious pillows, after a long trip in not so comfortable beds!!! Service, could not be better, the best location in town, specially if you are taking a cruise ship afterwards. Very near to many restaurants, and bars. The best neighborhood in town. Go for the best!

Room Tip: Sometimes it's better to spent a little more money, and have the best, than trying to save some...

My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights in May for a conference. We were very pleased with the hotel's location, as it was right on the seawall and a few minutes away from the entrance to Stanley Park. It was also walking distance to most of downtown. The room was really nice. Our only complaint was the lack of a shower door, which caused water to get all over the floor every morning. Other than that, the room was great. The main areas of the hotel were nice, but nothing spectacular. The breakfast was outrageously expensive, so it was a good thing that there was a Starbucks in the hotel. We liked their environmental program that allowed us to not have housekeeping for our stay and instead get vouchers to the on-site stores and restaurants. Overall, a very good experience.

The Westin Bayshore is a wonderful hotel located in a prime spot next to Stanley Park and the wonderful restaurants and waterfront seawall. The hotel has been around for years and has ongoing upgrades so rooms are very clean, comfortable. Stay in the Tower with view of the harbour if it is available.

My only regret is the hotel restaurant in the main building is no longer open for dinner and evening cocktails. It does have an excellent buffet breakfast but I miss the ambiance of dinner and drinks from years past.

Room Tip: Tower with views of Harbour.

Fantastic hotel. Although older than some of the newer hotels the position is unrivalled. The staff were exceptionally helpful and polite, particularly James and Nathan in the Sea Wall Restaurant.

Only drawback is that the hotel welcomes dogs, but this is apparently normal for the area, but we did have a particularly yappy dog near us, although this was for only one night.

We would recommend this hotel to anyone. Nearby is Cardero's which is a good place to visit for food as is also The Lift, both very close to the hotel.

Vancouver is a fabulous city and but for the travel and 8 hour time difference we would go every year.

Room Tip: Ask for a harbour view, ours was on the 6th floor and was excellent.

Great & friendly check-in service, even though it was fully booked. Beautiful foyer & great meeting facilities. Nice pool with bar service. Good gym. ON the Harbour front walkway that goes to Stanley Park in one direction, Gas Town in the other, so fabulous for running/walking. Easy to walk to fun spots & MANY good restaurants. Great linens/bed. Timely (albeit expensive) room service. The hallways TO the rooms look old but that is out of place with the remainder of the hotel, & the rooms are up to date & clean.

I stayed at the Westin for a conference and I choose the property for its location on Denman street , the indoor pool and the Heavenly Bed.

After a great experience at check at the Ottawa Westin, I was set aback by the unwelcoming experience at the Westin Byashore: there is no room available for the moment - I had a registration-, come back later - I was not the only one that had to do this- I did not feel special even if I am a SPG member. When I came back, I was coldly sent to another desk.
Check out was a bit better.

The location is great, a 15 minutes walk to downtown throughout the seawall, 10 minutes from the restaurants on Denman and Robson, 10 minutes walk from Stanley park.

The hotel is large, with a low rise older portion and a newer tower.
I was in the old portion . The rooms and bathroom are renovated Westin Style. The corridors looked sad and tired.

No complaint about the room and bathroom. I had no problem with the aircrafts but I am used to them

Inside pool is great. I did not tried the outside one or the gym.

Breakfast is expensive - about 30 $ and the lady that served me would had fitted more in a dinner than in a 4 stars hotel. The breakfast by itself was pretty good .However there are plenty of coffee shops, restaurants around and you can walk to the Safeway on Denman for food.

I would probably stay again for the location of the hotel. The only other hotel around is the Coast on Comox and Denman
