Rated 5 out of 5 by madgame7 Amazing location with great Status Recognition
I stayed in this hotel for 9 nights over 3 weeks and loved it here. The location is second to none, the rooms are large and clean (with mini kitchen -type area) and chances are good to be upgraded (unless you check-in sunday/monday night). The gym is average, lobby area can be cramped, but can't beat walking out into the middle of downtown Vancouver!
Was upgraded to my first suite here, the week after I hit Platinum, so perhaps Im a little biased!

Rated 2 out of 5 by MAX1818 Westin on Robson
I'm very loyal to SPG and have stayed at this hotel 7 times or so in the past few years, however the hotel needs some work. Needs a good cleaning, I had a shower head fall on my head and saw little mice in the pool area. Location is good, staff is amazing! The rooms need to be touched up, new sheets and pillows. For the right rate this is a great hotel for a premium rate it's not.

Rated 5 out of 5 by supatight80 Feels like "home"
I have stayed in this property many times and I prefer this one compared to other Starwood choices in Vancouver because their front desk staffs are so welcoming and personable.
They are surely not 'robotic' in nature and you can talk about anything and everything under the sun (as long as they are not busy with other guests)
The corner deluxe suite upgrades are great too. Too bad there is no club lounge however.

Rated 5 out of 5 by sljo888 Another splendid stay here
Back in YVR for the second time in a year, this time for the wedding of two friends. Hotel choice was a no-brainer. Location is so convenient and central for shopping and nightlife, but the area is not noisy.
Check-in staff continue to be the best, most smiling, happy, helpful, professional that we meet.
Rooms are comfortable, and contain ALL we need - especially the mini-kitchen, with a splendid view of downtown and the spaceship thingy that is probably a hockey stadium.
We had a small issue with a special laundry request (over and above anything usually offered), it went wrong, but was rectified within 2 hours with a smile the following morning and with minimal drama.
Food and drink at Hidden is OK, it's all the hotel needs given the wide choice outside the front door.
Our 1st choice hotel in YVR every time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ToddGY Very nice hotel
The Westin Grand is a very nice hotel in the heart of Vancouver. It is within easy walking to nightlife, shopping and the major attractions. The rooms are very comfortable and clean. The kitchenette is a nice feature for warming meals when you don't feel like eating at a restaurant. The staff is cordial and efficient. I would recommend this hotel and plan on staying here again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Patrick99 Wonderful hotel
This was a very quick trip to Vancouver for a business meeting. Upon checking into the hotel I was upgraded to a great suite with an amazing view of the city. The bathroom was huge. My only issue was that it was difficult to plug in my computer and mobile phone. There were not any convenient outlets, and I had to unplug lights. My wakeup call never came, but I have had that happen often in Westin's so always set my own alarms.

Rated 5 out of 5 by cmk1493 Great Hotel
I stayed here on an award stay.
We arrived at the hotel a bit before noon (well before check-in time). we were upgraded to some sort of corner / city view suite, which had a living room, bedroom, large bathroom, two TVs, minibar, microwave, dishwasher, etc
The staff was accommodating of my request to check out late (4pm). They recognized my platinum status, made sure I understood the free internet, bottled water, etc (many hotels do not do this anymore, even when you are a full paying customer and not on an award stay).
The hotel is in a great location in the middle of town. Next time I am back to Vancouver I will certainly stay here.
