Rated 5 out of 5 by Oreophone Spacious Rooms
I love the spacious suites - the bedroom separated from the living area and the kitchen and its amenities, including a microwave, refrigerator, dishwasher, very nice dishes and coffee maker. This is a quality hotel that I stay at every time I'm in Vancouver, BC. Each suite is shaped differently. Try to get one on an upper floor for a view!

Rated 5 out of 5 by dwp1127 Great Property!
Stayed per and post cruise for a few days. Great property - one of the nicest staffs I've ever encountered in a hotel - everyone from Bell Services to Front Desk to the Housekeeping staff always had a smile and made sure we were happy.
Only complaint is the elevators are very slow. Had to wait literally 15 minutes on the 7th floor twice.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Q247 Great for business travelers
Convenient for business downtown and comfortable without being ostentatious. In addition it is only a short walk to shopping of all sorts on Robson St. the trendy Yaletown area as well as the Skytrain (light-rail). Across the board a very friendly and accommodating staff.

I love this hotel. Rooms are suites with a kitchenette, two plasma screen TV.s. A real fridge is available on request. Views are incredible. On a clear day the mountains are right there, majestic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ryukus My Favorite place in Vancouver - great food, location, quality
This is my fav place in Vancity.
1. Location - at the end of Robson St. Super!!
2. Quality - it's a Westin. Enough said. Also, it's an all-suite hotel.
3. Food - hmmm. The "hidden" restaurant is a must try. Breakfast is delicious.
4. Service - best staff. Always courteous and respectful.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Karim123 Good Location
Very long time to get the elevators, a minimum of 10-12 minutes each time. Pool was closed for the Saturday the 4th of August without informing incoming guests by e-mail that they will not be able to utilize the pool. Our suite on the 27th floor; the airconditioner system in the room was not functioning.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BCTraveler7 Great hotel. Great location.
Another wonderful stay here. Rooms are always clean and fresh. The floor to ceiling windows allow for spectacular views of the city. Staff is very helpful and accomodating. And, the hotel is very convenient to public transit. I highly recommend this hotel when staying in Vancouver.

Our first trip to Vancouver and this was the perfect hotel in which to celebrate our 30th anniversary. The location is perfect for exploring the city. The professionalism and helpfulness of the staff is unsurpassed. All of our expectations were exceeded at this wonderful hotel?

Rated 2 out of 5 by WalterTO Amazing Service Express Team... Poor Restaurant
The service express team at the Westin Grand was absolutely amazing and made me feel valued. Unfortunately if you're looking for an a la carte breakfast this is the wrong hotel for you. I was told that my only option was the buffet and runny eggs aren't my idea of a good time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cless great location and hotel
In the midst of downtown - easy to get to great restaurants, shops, and tour buses. Staff was very helpful in suggesting good restaurants. Exercise facility was being renovated, but basic equipment could be used. Room had nice layout and was comfortable. Nice, large bathroom.

Staff went above and beyond to make our stay exceptional. Elizabeth (from Norway) at front desk, Lisa (Concierge), wait staff in lounge (didn't get names...sorry), and porters. They could not have better! Accomodations were also excellent. Clean and comfortable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by KellyT47 Worth a look
This hotel has been a steady quality each time I have visited Vancouver...the staff are friendly, the rooms are clean (in my most recent visit, housekeeping was exceptional), and the location is perfect. Close to all major attractions, and easy access to transit. I recommend this hotel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by somis5 Perfect
Excellent hotel in great location.
Very much a boutique hotel, which is unusual for Westin.
The staff and service are superb - you can't ask for more.
The rooms are great.
Now if they can just something about Vancouver's June gloom they would be beyond human.

Rated 4 out of 5 by yycflyer Ideal for Visiting Vancouver
This is my hotel of choice for visiting Vancouver on business. It is in a central location but never has a feeling of being busy. The rooms are all suites and very comfortable. Food and beverage service is top-notch.

The staff was helpful and friendly, terrific customer service. The location can't be beat as everything you could want is right out the front doors. This was my third stay and I will definitely be returning.

Beautiful boutique hotel. Spacious corner suite with separate bedroom. Attention to detail with their “Heavenly Bed” with white linens and contemporary bathroom. Friendly, courteous employees. Excellent location. Walking distance to Yaletown, Vancouver Art Gallery, Restaurants. Short distance to Granville Island, Capilano Bridge, Gastown, Grouse Mountain.
Highly recommend a stay with Westin Downtown Vancouver!

Rated 3 out of 5 by 51234 Rate not recognised
Location was great, Room was OK. The main issue is that they would not honour the rate I booked through SPG (Platinum concierge) and it ended up cositing me over $100 more for 1 night.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RobertG Great location and quiet area
I frequently travel for work and what is important for me is a nice quiet area.
Too often hotels are near emergency vehicle paths or noisy with vehicle traffic.
Not this hotel, as it is in great part of Vancouver with lots of local food stops in the area and walking to most building in the area.
The room that I had had a great view and quite up to date.
A small issue is that you enter on the main level of the hotel and you have to check-in on the 1st floor. Don't let this dismay you as the hotel is great in all other respects and that's a minor issue due to the sized of the lobby.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Kat1234 Elevator not working, other issues
I was looking for a place to stay in Vancouver for at least a couple of weeks, and checked out of here after three nights.
My issues with the place were:
1) One of the two elevators was only working, and I had to wait over five minutes almost every time I needed to use the elevator. This is unacceptable.
2) I sent an email on the first night to guest services voicing two concerns - that a) there was a lack of hangers in my room and b) that the complimentary bottle of water advertised on the website is no longer, and in the room it says that tap water should be drank instead. I did not bring a water bottle for the gym because I was under the impression there would be a complimentary one in the room. Instead, guests have the "option" of a mini bar water bottle for seven dollars. No thanks. This email was never addressed with a call or reply back, nor were any more hangers or a water bottle delivered to the room.
The gym is decent for a hotel gym, and my room was always cleaned very well by the maid.
However, despite the gym and maid service, I would not stay at this hotel again. There are hotels in a comparable price range that have much much better customer service, as well as functioning elevators.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PK1990 Excellent stay!
Loved this hotel. We stayed in a deluxe corner suite on the 26th floor and it had a wonderful view looking North and West. It was our anniversary and I think they upgraded us to a floor with a view - nice touch. We also liked the simple system they have to connect a tablet/iPad to the TV with an HDMI connection. We've already talked about a return trip!

Rated 3 out of 5 by KIDJ Not pleased.
We were there for an athletic event, wanted to use pool and hot tub afterward but they were closed for special event. Hotel offered to drive us 35 minutes to a different site, not realistic. Event also played very loud dance music, could not take nap, even though we were on one of the top floors. Called front desk, said they would turn down the sound but they did not. Everything cost extra including WI - FI and Parking. Very expensive. Called to get car out of Valet, but they forgot to get it, almost missed our event

Rated 5 out of 5 by turtle The Bride said it was "perfect".
I booked the hotel for friends as a gift on their wedding night.
They really appreciated and enjoyed it. The reception left from the Westin Bayshore but we found we got better room value at the Grande. I had checked in to put some stuff in the fridge in the afternoon and thought the room was very nice. ****I had arranged with the desk to put any incidentals including parking on my credit card. The shift that was on when the couple arrived didn't seem to be able to access that info. Anyway they gave them complimentary parking as a wedding gift. Which I thought was great (and appropriate). PS they didn't use any facilities (even breakfast) so can't comment.
