This hotel is on Robson, right across the street from some good fast food places. Check out JAPADOG, Japanese hot dogs. There is also a Vietnamese noodle place next to JAPADOG with great noodles and Vietnamese sandwiches. If you continue to walking up the street, you’ll encounter tons of shops and they all open till 9PM at night. So I’d give the location of this Westin a 5 star.
The Westin Grand is a all suite hotel with a kitchenette (stocked with utensils so very handy if you were to take out your meal from across the street) AND believe it or not, a dishwasher(!). Never encountered a dishwasher in a hotel room before. I’m not so sure that’s a great idea because it’s taking away part of the living area. The square footage of the room is no larger than other hotel rooms. So putting in a kitchenette AND a partition wall to segregate the bedroom and the living area, makes the whole place feel smaller. There was only enough space for a queen bed in the room, not much storage neither.
So in summary, I’d say, the hotel is in a great location, but the design of the room is not the best we’ve seen compared to other Westins. We also stayed in the Sheraton Vancouver Wall Center during this trip. I’d say the Sheraton facility and room is definitely more superior to this one, if you so happen to be comparing these two hotels. However we did not walk around the area near Sheraton so we can’t comment that location compares to the Westin.
