“Great hotel for early morning flight”
Reviewed October 15, 2011

We booked this hotel using Hotwire and were hoping to "luck out" and get the Fairmont at the airport - as if! The hotel is friendly, new and has everything right there. The restaurant was empty for lunch which always feels kinda creepy but my daughter and I had a delicious lunch and the waiter was not falling all over us which was nice. I really like Westin hotels as they have the best beds and a variety of pillows from which you can choose. This is a great hotel if you are arriving late into Vancouver and don't want to venture downtown or if you have an early flight and wish to be close to the airport. Not the Fairmont but definitely worth considering.

Pros:
Great location for the airport
Fab room
Cons:
Shuttle only picks up on demand (unlike all the others which run all the time)
The restaurant service was non-existent and the food below par.

Trying to think of one word to describe this experience and realizing there aren't any words to help articulate the amazing pop, pop, pop, of flavors we experienced during our brunch.

I was waffling between this hotel, the Delta Airport and the Radisson. The Westin was going to be my third choice for hotels, simply because it charged extra for internet access and many of the other hotels near the airport don't. But I had seriously considered it because of the floor to ceiling windows.

I had almost booked the Delta when one of my colleagues suggested trying Hotwire. I really had nothing to lose, I was only going to be staying less than 12 hours on the way back from a business trip in Vancouver.

My Hotwire lottery resulted in The Westin. The discounted price was about $50 cheaper than any other advertised price and I was content with the result.

I had a corner room facing the waterfront on the 6th floor. The room was nicely laid out and the bed was so very comfortable. The only very minor quibble I had with the room is that the lighting in the bathroom is somewhat poor for putting on make-up. Bathrobe in the closet, and plenty of towels. I didn't hear any people noise at all from the room next to me (always a plus).

You could definitely hear the planes taking off and landing, but it didn't bother me since I never sleep particularly well before an early flight.

The airport shuttle arrives every thirty minutes and makes one stop along the way. Very convenient.

As others have mentioned, it's within walking distance of a wonderful Asian market and food court which was wonderful to peruse. I also walked about 20 minutes along the waterfront in search of one of my now all-time favourite geocaches. It was very safe for a middle aged woman walking solo.

I do think that they should offer the Internet for free since so many of the other hotels near the airport are offering it, but I don't regret staying in the hotel at all. It's a bit far out to make it a place to stay if touring Vancouver, but it's a great stopping place for being close to the airport and not worrying about traffic for an early flight.

We booked this hotel due to an early-morning flight (as have others).

I was very impressed by the quality of the hotel - it is nearly on par with Asian hotels (i.e. Grand Hyatt Tokyo, Westin Suhkumvit Bangkok, etc.) costing 3X.

The room was clean, mostly quiet, well laid out, and comfortable.

Restaurant staff was friendly, honest, and helpful.

Desk and shuttle staff were great, too.

Room Tip: Be careful about the immediately surrounding area. As for high floor, facing the airport if possibl...

Very modern, comfortable quiet hotel.The bathroom deep tub and walk in shower were great. Excellent swimming pool and gym facilities on site. A bit isolated for walking sight seeing. Fabulous view of the mountains and waterway.The morning sunrise was breath taking.
Loved the Asian market which is within walking distance.Great seafood restaurant directly across the highway. (Bit dicey to cross the road).
Friendly staff. No snack shop or vending machine on site that I found.
I stayed on the Club floor, which included a light breakfast. Did not get the voucher for the evening snacks.
Even on club floor the hotel charged for the internet access. The hotel is close to the airport and shuttle service is available 20 hours a day.
