As a platinum travelers with Continental airlines, Gold with American Airlines and silver with US airways and Platinum with Starwood I clearly travel a lot. I'm not easily impressed, Starwood hotels has always done the best for me.
I had the shocking pleasure of staying at The Westin Wall Centre, Vancouver Airport
10/15/2010 - 10/16/2010 when I missed the last flight out of Vancouver. The check in process was flawless, the staff amazingly kind and totally professional. My room was upgraded without request, to a suite, this is not uncommon with Starwood but this suite was over the top. The appointments and quality was absolutely noticeable. After traveling so much things often become less noticeable. The floor to ceiling glass windows with views of the city made me feel like I was on vacation.
I was really tired and not but decided not to order room service but to go to the restaurant in the hotel. I was amazed by the server, Justin Sparks and the quality and creativeness of the food by Chef Hamid Salimian. They accommodated my dairy free needs and went overboard making offer of menu modifications/suggestions. I finally left it up to the chef and he prepared a dish the was perfect on every level. I was so impressed I ask to meet him to thank him for accommodating my diary free needs but for making such an incredible dinner. I have never asked to speak with a chef at a hotel restaurant to compliment him. Everything at the property was hitting on all cylinders, guest rooms, staff intelligence, competency and knowledge. Hotel service, food and wine was 5 stars!!
This is only the 2nd time I've ever taken the time to write a review on trip advisor.
I still can't believe how impressed I was and that it was an airport hotel. The last trip to Vancouver I stayed at the Fairmont Pacific Rim which was very good, but not compared to the Westin Wall Center. The food and service went far beyond the Fairmont, your just not in the city, you’re at the airport. I know when I return to Vancouver I will stay at the airport Westin and go in to the city for my meetings.
