Rated 2 out of 5 by Mpeterson Not Grand
Very disappointed in the hotel and staff. The rooms were like converted condos with very small bedrooms. Felt like a Four Points. No robes amd 3 towes. No recognition of Platinum status on checking in to choose amenity. Not even 1 complimentary bottle of water in the room. Concierge was texting each time we walked by and never even lifted her head to say hello. Would not recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ToJo Always fantastic
I have been staying at the Westin Grand several times each year for the last 12 years and every time I visit, it amazes me how awesome the staff is. This trip Jocelyn in reservations was a tremendous help securing the room and package I wanted. As always Lisa the concierge is amazing beyond words. She makes excellent suggestions and is so welcoming. We arrived in our room to a basket of treats from Lisa and ice cream for the children from Jocelyn. Needless to say, my girls were thrilled and felt so important. Jesse and Nicola in the restaurant are also fantastic. Their service is impeccable.
I have spent 12 years in the hospitality industry, and I really appreciate your fabulous staff. My family and I feel like we are coming home when we stay at the Westin Grand.
Whenever I hear of someone heading to Vancouver BC I always tell them to stay here. I can’t wait for our next weekend away!

I have stayed at this hotel and every time am amazed at how the staff go above and beyond in every area of the hotel. The concierge is efficient and one of the most well informed in the business. The front desk personnel are always offering to help. The dining staff remember your name, are kind and warm. The valet guys are friendly and enthusiastic. I could go on and on, but you get the idea :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by jill62 Thank you to the Westin Manager
I wish to thank the management for providing my husband & I with a one night complimentary stay- in a deluxe suite, it was lovely. We had previously stayed a month ago for a long weekend, with friends. We were put in a handicapped room ( due to the fact we had booked on Priceline and the hotel was full). After notifying the hotel- via our "guest comments" we were not happy with our room- we were moved on night #2. The management also provided us with a 1 night complimentary stay. Since we are regular Westin/Vancouver guests, we returned and thoroughly enjoyed our accommodations this time. We appreciated being recognized for our many stays with the Westin hotels, and that the manager of the Westin Grand Vancouver took the time to reply to our complaint and provide us with a lovely room in compensation. What more can we say, this was "very good" customer service and we are thankful and will be back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Willra Why you should hold meetings at Westin Grand
If you are looking for a convenient hotel in downtown Vancouver to hold meetings, Westin Grand is a superb choice. The meeting rooms are good, catering is great, and the staff will make sure everything runs smoothly and, better yet, be quick and helpful when you need to make a change. The bedrooms are well designed for when you need to work from there.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Charles007 Great Stay!
Really nice hotel and room. Great location, friendly staff. Ideal for a longer stay. Central location in downtown Vancouver with walking access to the skytrain (Canada Line), shopping district and food and drink. Only issues really were one of the two TVs in the suite wasnt working properly and there are only 2 elevators so that could be a bit slow.

My family and I just returned from an excellent stay. I was very impressed by the kind, thoughtful, friendly staff. The added bonuses like board games for the kids, a complimentary crib, a stroller to borrow, really made a difference for our family. We were accommodated to in every possible way and and a very thankful to the staff, We will be back!

Rated 4 out of 5 by CDucks Excellent Location but short on staff
This hotel was located in the perfect location in the heart of Vancouver within easy walking distance to most attractions.
My only issue was that the hotel seemed to be short staffed. Only one person at the main desk each time I went there.
The hotel missed my wake up call on the date of my departure and almost caused me to miss my flight.

Thank you for an excellent stay.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Ellen27 Hotel was nice- area around it improving
I had not stayed at this hotel for about 5 years. The area around the hotel has upgraded more since the last time I stayed here, and it is really only 3-4 blocks from the main shopping streets downtown. There are more restaurants and shops. Only thing, I couldn't figure out how to turn on the lamps beside the bed..

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cocomom23 Good location and helpful staff
Location is excellent. Staff are helpful and knowledgeable particularly the orientee Priya. Did not act like an orientee but more like an experience staff. Offered us a good deal , information and took time to make our stay comfortable and convenient. She made sure we would get the best value for our hotel stay.

This place used to be my go to spot in Vancouver. I don't think I'll be staying here again. Rooms are outdated, wifi was slow and spotty and the breakfast situation is a mess.
They've discontinued the menu and only offer this sad pathetic buffet as an option. Buffet was not stocked and had very small and sad selection.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lotretta Westin Grand Vancouver is GRAND
Westin Grand Vancouver is super clean, modern and has a lovely decor. The room has a great layout, with a nice sitting area.
The little kitchenette was well equipped.The staff are the hotels greatest asset. Service was first rate. Close to sports events, GasTown, Yaletown and fabulous shopping and restaurants.

I stay at this property frequently and I always love it. I do want to provide feedback however that the TV in the bedroom had no signal. When I called, the front desk was unable to do anything because the engineer wasn't in until morning. This has happened the past 5 times I have stayed here; it is disappointing!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Samiam2013 Perfect location
This Westin turned out to be in the perfect location for my visit to Vancouver. The hotel is not too big, not too small with a restaurant that is very pleasant, good breakfast, accommodated my dietary needs and with a very professional wait staff, especially Jesse. Everyone on staff were friendly and helpful.

This is my favorite hotel for Vancouver visits.. In fact this is my ONLY hotel for Vancouver visits. This has the perfect location and the staff are simply the very best..We get to Vancouver several times a year and we always stay at Westin Grand.. Hidden restaurant is an outstanding part of the Westin Grand..

Grey Cup party in the next room kept us awake for most of the night. I went to the front desk in the morning to complain. Talked to a young lady by the name of Rachelle who assured us it would be looked after. She was very pleasent and very professional. There was no problem the next evening. Please thank her.

Rated 5 out of 5 by incline1 Best hotel in Vancouver
The location of this hotel can't be beat. It's a simple walk to BC Place, Rogers Arena and teh art museum. The rooms are beautiful and we love the min-kitchen in each room. We have stayed there many times over the past several years an dhave never had a bad experience. Staff in extra helpful and friendly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lovestrinket This hotel was in the perfect location.
The Westin in Vancouver was the perfect location for our quick trip. Two went to the Canucks game and the other shopped and then went back to watch the game in the room. We ordered room service later in the evening, the food was good and didn't take long to arrive. We would definitely stay there again.

I have stayed at this property many times and it continues to maintain it's high standards. It is well situated close to sporting facilities, shopping and some of Canada's best restaurants. The dining lounge offers above hotel standard options at competitive prices. It is a must try!

Rated 4 out of 5 by jkw1 Room was great
Once you get to the room you forget about how long it takes to get there with only two elevators and a two level lobby area. Very crowded, cramped lobby. Room was very comfortable with separate living area. Desk area could use more outlets to make it useable. overall will come back.

Rated 3 out of 5 by JCCCA Elsewhere next time
Below what I expect from Westin. Very poor WIFI connection, miserable elevators and inconvenient bar and restaurant services hours all contributed to what I would say is a weak performance. Value for money is just not there and I will go elsewhere when I next visit Vancouver
