Resort style elegance and ocean views beside iconic Stanley Park

Only the picturesque seawall separates this downtown luxury resort from the stunning 1,000-acre Stanley Park. Snow-capped mountains serve as a backdrop for the gorgeous forested urban park and crystal blue harbor that flank either side of the hotel. Perhaps inspired by the abundance of natural beauty, every detail of the Westin Bayshore is lovely and well executed. The highest quality linens and exclusive Heavenly Beds, unbelievable ocean vistas and absolute pampering at the on-site spa wrap guests in splendor at every turn.

 

Highlights
  • Gorgeous Stanley Park to one side, fantastic harbor views to the other
  • Named on Condé Nast Traveler's Gold List in 2002
  • Whale watching tours depart from the on-site dock

 

Rooms

Recently redecorated guestrooms and suites of the Westin Bayshore showcase an earthy palette and classic, comfortable furnishings. Views from floor to ceiling windows, sliding glass doors and private balconies take center stage in many of the rooms--it's hard to beat the incredible mountain, ocean and city scenery. All rooms have the hotel's signature Heavenly Bed (designed for a great night's sleep in exquisite comfort), large TV and high-speed Internet access (fees apply).

 

Features
This phenomenal location offers guests an immediate connection with nature while enjoying the excitement of a cosmopolitan city. At the Westin Bayshore, guests are right on the water, just steps from the gorgeous 1,000-acre urban forest bordering the city and a short walk to trendy boutiques, fascinating plays and world-class cuisine. Enjoy the marina views at the hotel's on-site restaurants: Currents at Bayshore (reservations recommended) or the more casual Seawall Bar & Grill. The refined Vida Spa blends the ancient Indian science of Ayurveda with the best in Western healing philosophies to help guests relax and rejuvenate.

Family trip

There was construction noise at 6:30 in the morning without a notice. Even though parking on the street is free after 9:00pm to 9:00am, the valet is very expensive and so is self parking. They didn't let us know we could have parked for free, we wasted $40 for no reason. The carpets were old and smelly.

The perfect location

The most difficult part of booking a first trip to Vancouver is that even with the maps to difficult to know where to go. This is the perfect location, right near Stanley part and the water and an easy walk to let's of good restaurants and easy access to the major roads. The staff was friendly and while we are low maintenance guests, they really left a great impression from the delitful lady at checkin, the guys at valet and the lady in the gift shop. The room was clean and the temperature comfortable. This is a destination I have already recommended.

Dining tip: Long walk from hotel

Perhaps the best food I have ever had - certainly the best sushi - was at Minami in Yaletown. A second recommendation was the Dinesty Dumpling House on Robson just a few blocks from the hotel. Both were wonderful.

Great hotel, but some suggestions

The location couldn't have been better, the amenities were great, the staff very friendly, for the most part. Suggestions: 1) Charging for WiFi on top of $400-plus a night is ridiculous. The hotel should include it as a free benefit. 2) They give you a $5 coupon to use in hotel restaurant/day if you forgo housekeeping. That should be more like $15. 3) The rate is high for what you get. $300/night would be better.

Great place - kinda slow

I love this hotel, it's situated off from the busy Robson Street, but has views of Stanley park and a nice walk around the harbor. Great restaurants are in the area that are within walking distance, and you can go for a nice run in the morning. The reason I only gave it 3 stars, is that we booked a suite and when we arrive at 4pm, only one of the rooms was finished....i would have thought by at least 3pm the rooms would have been finished. So we were only allowed to use the adjoining room that was available. Once the other room was available, the front desk called and gave us a new set of keys, that didn't work (we didn't know that they didn't work until we tried them and were locked out- and were in bathing suits). Overall, the experience was good, people were helpful, but there was a long line to check in, and the mishap in checking in and getting keys that didn't work was kinda disappointing.

Best for Canada Day

I was attending a conference at the hotel, and it was all very well done. But, the best part was the Killer view from my room. external balcony, but the big glass slider opened up on the world and had a nice high safety railing. The Canada day fireworks over the bay are Great!

Room with a view

Beautiful view of the bay, comfortable bed, delicious breakfast. While I don't mind paying top dollar for a nice room, I am annoyed to have to pay top dollar to park my car.

Awesome Location; perfect for families

The location on the waterfront doesn't get any better than this. The lobby/ lounging area is huge and thus perfect for families to sit & chat. The staff were very courteous all-around.
