Rated 5 out of 5 by JoAnn1988 Simply Excellent!
Our annual visit with family to the Westin Bayshore in April 2012 was flawless again for our three hotel rooms in the Tower, just as it has been each year since 1988. The hotel is gorgeous and clean, the service is unsurpassed and the location is the finest right at Coal Harbour/Stanley Park. We were able to check in early to one out of our three rooms which was extremely helpful upon returning from six days of skiing in Whistler, and our two remaining rooms were available on time after that. We loved our recently decorated rooms that all included private balconies with floor to ceiling glass sliding doors with sensational views from every angle. We always feel safe and pampered. The Concierge is great at recommending superb restaurants and new sights in Vancouver. We have introduced many friends and family to the Westin Bayshore over the years and will most definitely be returning again next year, if not sooner! Thank you from Minneapolis, Minnesota

Rated 3 out of 5 by Scott123bj Good location and views
This hotel has good location which close to Stanley park and bayshore. But the staff seldem greeting guest especially door man. Even you meet the staff whatever HSKP and restaurant staff, they always avoid your eyes. This is really not the Westin style! That make me unhappy and make me very disappointed for the service in this hotel!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jenna87 This hotel was amazing!
We had such a great time at your hotel. There was everything we needed and more and we couldn't have been more happy. The pool was awesome and my 2 yr old son was welcomed with a smile at your restaurant and everywhere else for that matter. Thank you for having us and we will most definitely be staying with you again :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anniversary3 Fantastic Staff
We arrived early for check-in; however, rooms were not available. The clerk seemed concerned to get us checked in as quickly as possible and kept us informed during the hour wait. In addition, he provided us a great upper floor with a great view of the bay. Our overall experience with the staff and resort facilities were fantastic.

We stayed in a tower Dix room that was what I expected for the room rate. Heavenly ing bed was lovely. The room's best feature is the stunning views of the inlet and snow capped north shore mountains.
The hotel staff were very attentive to our needs and welcoming.
I would recommend this hotel for both a short or long term stay.

The Westin Bayshore is a well-located hotel with an exceptional staff and beautifully-appointed rooms right down to the sumptuous bed linens. Our city view room was still a treat, as we also had a beautiful water view and Stanley Park, too! We plan to stay at Westins in our future travels and hope they are just like the Bayshore.

The Bayshore is located in a nice quiet area of down town Vancouver and we didn't hear any street noise. Peaceful setting with lovely view over looking Stanley Park and Marina. Dog friendly hotel that makes it feel more like home. Staff was very helpful and cheerful and we had quite a few requests over our stay this Christmas.

Excellent location, very friendly staff, house keeping very good. Amazing view from the "tower" to harbor side. Missing hotel service directory in room. Conference centre in walking distance. Altogether very recommendable.

Rated 2 out of 5 by adi1999 Did not live up to SPG standards
We stayed one night here on a spur of the moment trip to Vancouver. We have stayed at the Westin numerous times and have always been blown away by the quality and service. This time was very different. First let me say the location of this hotel is amazing, a great place to stay with a family. We have two boys who really enjoyed the boats and water that surrounds the hotel and they loved the pools, even when it was chilly outside they wanted to be in there. The staff gave us Westin Kids Club bags which they both loved, as well as a free movie. The downside was our room. We were on the 2nd floor and in a corner unit. It was extremely noisy and the people next to us were parting all night long with no warning to be quite, mind you it was 2am and went on for hours. Our room was awful and something I would expect to see in a motel. There were sliding doors to our room which did not close properly therefore allowing cold air in and condensation build up on the windows. There was mold on the curtains and the wallpaper was peeling off. When we told the front desk they said thank you for telling us and that was it.

I was skeptical of using a free night award for one night stay - thinking I would be treated differently. I was graciously welcomed, had a very comfortable, safe and relaxing stay. Rooms, although tower is dated, it is well kept. All staff were genuine and welcoming. The view of the water - even when raining is wonderful.

This hotel more than met our expectations. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We were able to walk to almost everywhere we wanted to go. The room was large, comfortable and clean. Loved being able to watch the activities in the harbor from our window. Especially watching the cruise ships coming and going.

The Westin Bayshore Vancouver is a beautiful hotel, in a stunning location. Surrounded by water, mountains, city skylines, the seawall, and a marina, for peace and relaxation one could not be better located. The staff are welcoming, the heavenly beds are heavenly, and the cleanliness of the hotel is excellent

If you are making a quick trip to Vancouver and feel as though you'll probably go from meeting to meeting - stay at the Westin Bayshore. The location is spectacular; right on the water with amazing views; the facilities are great; food is wonderful and the staff are all top notch - it makes it all worthwhile.

I picked the Bayshore as I had not stayed here in quite some time. The rooms have been nicely renovated and the location can't be beat. However I prefer the location and decor of the Grand a bit better. Plus the Grand offers free wifi whereas it was 25 dollars a day at the Bayshore. But it was a lovely stay.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dawgstar82 Wonderful, as always!
Check in went smoothly, even though we extended our stay by a day at that time. Staff worked hard to find an upgraded room, linking our now 3 sepereate reservations and keying the cards so they would work the entire time! Great service from Door Men Todd, Allain and Garret and in SeaWall from Renee!

Rated 5 out of 5 by CJCL Nice hotel- great location
I stayed at this hotel for a conference. The rooms were nice, but obviously an upgraded older hotel. My only complaint is that the noise from the hallways was somewhat loud during the night. The room was clean, comfortable, and had a nice harbor view. The staff was very helpful and accommodating.

For my money this is the best SPG property in Vancouver. I appreciate the views and the close proximity to Stanley Park. You are right at the footsteps to the sea wall and Stanley Park. Its this type of getaway that I love while traveling for business. Great way to forget about being away from.

The whole family enjoyed our stay. The views from our hotel room where very nice. I loved the runners path &workout room (felt safe). The room service was fast and friendly. And most important the room was very clean. Every single staff member was helpful and kind. We would love to come back.

The hotel has great location being around the corner from Stanley Park. The Bayshore view is beautiful.
It is staffed by friendly and attentive staff (front desk called to ensure I received what I asked for 30 minutes ago).
It also has the best conference food I have had in a while.

We stayed at the Westin Bayshore for 5 nights and found it to be an excellent decision. The hotel is located perfectly. We walked to Stanley Park , downtown, to English Bay, and to Gastown. The views of Coal Harbour are great. I would definitely stay here again when travelling to Vancouver.

Found many hidden charges Room HST, Destination Mkt Fer, room Tax, Other room charge, extra parking fees. To my surprise asked for even wifi charge. I will not recommend this hotel to any of my friend, in fact, I may want to tell 350+ friends on my facebook that to never use this hotel.

We visited for a family vacation and Starwood Vacation owners, we had high expectations. And they were met, we arrived late and got a warm welcome, the food and service was excellent. The location is ideal straddling Stanley Park and downtown. Great pool and gym gear and HD TV too!

My husband and I stayed for 5 nights at the Westin Bayshore. The location right by Stanley Park and overlooking Coal Harbor was perfect. Very helpful staff from Bell Staff to Concierge to Front Desk. One of the best Westin's we have stayed in and in such a magnificent city.

I just spent four nights at the Westin Bayshore and can wholeheartedly recommend the hotel to any interested parties.
The decor, the view, the blackened salmon sandwich, the location were all well above my expectations. So were Vancouver and British Columbia wines.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MaxResults Just Love This Hotel
We don't often get to Vancouver so it has been awhile since we stayed here and we loved it just as much this time as last time. What a great location for walking to Stanley Park and to restaurants. Love the view from our room. The bed is so divine, I always want to take it home with me. Although I don't like Starbucks coffee, I do appreciate that they provide a quality coffee in the room as I like to have some before getting out for the day. I do prefer real glass mugs over the paper cups though. I also prefer the real stemmed wine glasses over the stemless that are now provided in the room. So those would be my only two improvements I could mention. It is great having a fridge and complimentary water and robe to use so I didn't have to bring mine. Staff was great. I had an issue with people across the hall partying so loud they woke me up. I called the front desk and it was immediately handled and there was a nice note from management under the door when I woke up. Very professional. We look forward to staying here again!

My wife is a diplomats daughter. We both agree this is the finest hotel that either of us have stayed at. My wife has been on 5 continents and has requested to come back in about six weeks for her birthday. Emily at the front desk at check in was exceptional.

In arriving at the hotel, the checkin line was huge. At no time was there consideration for Starwood Gold or higher Customers. Secondly I had to wait until 5 pm to checkin to my room. This has never happened to me at a Starwood Property. Not impressed at all.
