Rated 4 out of 5 by CanuckTraveler Best views in Vancouver
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.

We were able to open our patio doors to the wonderful outdoors and enjoy the harbor activity.

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.

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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by rsarosh Hidden charges
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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 89354 Excellent and attentive staff, great conference facilities
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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jazzbo9 Really friendly an comfortable 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!

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.

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.

Once again, Westin Hotel was absolutely awesome. The staff, from the Front Desk to the Cleaning Staff were outstanding. It was great from check-in to check-out. I was there from Nov. 22 - Nov.24. I will be back. Thank you for an incredible experience.

Our meetings were successful on a number of levels and much had to do with the location of this property, it's proximity to the city and the care and attention provided by the staff. Catering provided delicious food, facilities and care of our needs.

Hard to ask for a better location, it is beautiful. The hotel is well appointed and well looked after. Staff were amazing. My room was clean and very comfortable. but most importantly - propably the best nights sleep I've had away from home.

The location of this hotel is fantastic. My room was dirty and the chair inside the room had many stains and needed to be cleaned or removed. The beds were very comfortable. The staff were professional, polite and seemed to enjoy their jobs.

We've stayed several times at the Westin Bayshore and continue to have great experiences each time. From the genuinely friendly and helpful staff to the amazing amenities and location. If you're in Vancouver, the Westin Bayshore is a must.

Comfortable hotel, helpful staff, good buffet, great fitness room and indoor pool, extremely comfy bed!
Some rooms come with a great view, obviously some don't.
The location is great, adjacent to STanley Park, but not really downtown.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Tomrei Most of the hotel needs refurbishment
Rooms in the Main building (not Tower), floors and other public ares need a refurbishment. The location is great, but not the hotel. Breakfast is average on quality, every day the same and could not offer enough seats for the guests.

Recently stayed at this hotel for a week and the staff showed amazing attention to detail and went above and beyond what is expected of the service industry. This combined with the unmatched surroundings made it an excellent stay.

I loved everything about our stay, except the gift shop representative. He was not helpful, would barely respond to our inquiries, and did not provide us a receipt- just said he didn't have one ( we were charging to our room).

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 3 out of 5 by mal12 The hotel was average
The hotel was aesthetically pleasing. However, at night the windows and walls are not sound proofed. I could hear the fog horn of the boats loud and clear and people's conversations which made my sleep extremely difficult!

Rated 2 out of 5 by nofreewifi2012 No wifi, unless you're sneaky
At a cost of $225 a night, with free wifi available throughout the city, it is shocking that the Bayshore charges another $15 a night for connectivity. Then to add to the issue, 'free' wifi is advertised at checkin, but only for the lobby and restaurants. When I asked about this, I was handed a little slip of paper with login credentials, like the crown jewels. This is an inappropriate business model in 2012. In speaking with others who are SPG members, they said they also had to pay for wifi and were peeved at this.
To test the system, I took my little slip of paper up to my guestroom, and the credentials worked fine there.
Additionally, as a conference exhibitor I had a runaround to get wifi connection there. Once I did, it turned out those credentials also worked throughout the hotel.
The staff was not helpful about this issue, just apologetic. Not their fault. It's a management issue, to be sure.
Finally - a much more minor issue - in such a high end property I'd expect my coffee maker to be cleaned of the previous guests' coffee grounds. Not the case here.

This experience on New Years Eve was awesome. From the ease of checking in to checking out. Better than some 5 star hotels that I have stayed at.
The staff of the hotel was very friendly, and made me very comfortable.

It seems that knowing that you are close to USA and Banks aren't always open that you would try to accomadate close to the exchange rate instead of automayically taking 15% on top of whatever USA money you recieve.

The junior suite was dated, but had just the right amount of space for us- except the bathroom! Really odd layout had a rectangular shower that was 23" deep! My husband measured it as we couldn't believe it...
