“Heavenly Hotel”
Reviewed July 5, 2005

Booked it on Hotwire for CDN100/night for Memorial Day weekend. Got a room in the Towers wing. Highly recommend requesting a room in the Towers. Very clean hotel, nice room, king size bed, balcony overlooking the Marina and the hills. Decent bathroom, Starbucks coffee in room, the Heavenly Bed. Just a great experience. Nice breakfast buffet, though we just walked to the Bojangles Cafe about a block along the water. Parking was expensive, so we parked on the street at night. The street parking is actually closer than the hotel underground parking, and it is free till 9am. Great hotel location. Denman street is where all the nice restaurants are located, and Robson is for shopping. The only thing bad is there is no free Wi-Fi, even in the lobby.

This was the overall most enjoyable hotel I have ever stayed in, and I've stayed in probably 200 or so in every part of the world, some of which were quite literally fit for roylaty.

Rooms bright & airy, value for money excellent, location superb, amenities superb. I particularly liked the ability to specify when you wanted your room serviced each day. I would have absolutely no hesitation in staying again.

Oh that bed, that bed!!! It was a little slice of heaven! ;)

The service was great. We started off in a small room that smelled of smoke actually, but called down to the front desk and got moved for $30 more to a room that was enormous with a balcony and gorgeous view of the marina. Spacious room, lusciously decadent beds, nice bathroom, lovely service, good location (close to Robson and Denman with lots of good shopping and great sushi). All in all, a pretty wonderful stay!

I stayed here for 4 nights while working in Vancouver and I did not want to leave.
I had a corner room in the Tower. It seems like a bit of a walk to get to the Tower from the lobby but the view was worth it. Gorgeous view of the mountains and the marina. The sea planes land in the harbor near by which is a very neat thing to watch in the mornings.

The room was a nice size and the beds were great. Bathrobes were provided which is always a nice touch.
Spent a lot of time in the Lobby Bar / Restaurant and the service there was always very good and the staff were very friendly.

I also found the front desk, concierge, and valet staff to be very friendly and helpful. They went above and beyond on a couple of occassions.

The only thing that keeps me from rating this hotel as Excellent is the difficulties that I had with the hotel provided wireless internet access.

I was unable to use their wireless-equipment to access the internet from my room. Their tech support tried to get it to work, couldn't, said they would come back the next day, but never returned. So, I was stuck going down to the lobby to check my company email.

I was too lazy to pursue this with the management so I don't know what they would have done to resolve it.

But, all in all, a lovely hotel and I would definitely stay again and recommend to family and friends.

We just spent 5 nights at the Westin Bayshore and were delighted with our room, the fitness facilities and pool(s), the staff, the location, and the hotel overall. We were able to take advantage of a special rate offer so that made it even better, of course. Our tower "city view" room was as we expected (we always appreciate the robes!). It had a step out only balcony, and as we were kind of on a corner we also had a bit of marina & mountain view. It was fun to step out and take in the refreshing air and sights. No big conventions or crowds during out stay so except for one time when a hord of pre-teens were canon-balling in the indoor pool we had the pool/hot tub to our selves or shared it with a family or two.

We really loved the location adjacent to Stanley Park (a block or two away) and delighted in finding Denman Street for its local feel, the cafes (Blenz Coffee chain here has free wireless internet), and we ate at fun small restaurants there. Wild Garlic, Zakkushi Japanese Grill, and a dessert place (names escapes me at the moment, was it True Confections?) were standouts for us. All were very reasonably priced and tasty. We did not feel away from the action by not being in the middle of downtown for this part of stay in Vancouver (we moved to Marriott for conference - will review separately). We especially enjoyed the Bojangles (chain cafe) that was across the street from the hotel entrance each morning for breakfast. We lucked into summer type weather and were able to sit out at the sidewalk tables and watch people go by on the seawall walk. We used the Westin shuttle a few time to get to a more downtown location and walked there and back as well to take in Robson Street (ok enough) and the art museum, etc. We used buses to get further afield.

The Westin Bayshore gave us a a real vacation feel before moving on for business.

Due to the great reviews, I decided to stay at this hotel. Exceptional location on the water but too far away from the rest of downtown Vancouver. Very poor service at reception and restaurants. Bedrooms were old and tired. Bathroom was appalling and in need of renovation. Not sure why this property is called a resort? No spa, no tennis courts, organized activities or outdoor recreation. They have a marina and are next door to Stanley Park but that's about it. Very dissapointing considering the price. Will not return to this hotel or reccommend to anyone.
