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.

Fantastic location

We had wonderfrul time at the Westin. The hotel in reality is more beautiful than advertised. The only issues I would have that the room could have been cleaner and the reception staff more friendly. Not once did anyone ask if we were enjoying our stay even at checkout,. Thats not great when you have spent a lot of money. Overall it was fantasic location and within walking distance to everyting.

You have to vist The Keg on Thurlow Street - great steak and fish restaurant,. Bit more expensive but great treat. Also Zepherellis (think Robson Street) one of the best meals of the holiday. The above restaurants are about 15mins walk from hotel.

Close to Stanley Park

The Westin is a very nice hotel with spa like bathrooms and nicely decorated rooms in calm colors. Nice water views from our window.We could see the cruise ships in port and watch them sail away too. The Seawall walkway is right outside. The only negative about the great location is that you will hear the commercial sea planes in the harbor right next door taking off and landing starting by 7:00 am. We also had some very noisy conventioneers on our floor who partied in the hallway until midnight. The staff was pleasant and helpful. The valet parking attendants were particularly friendly. Several restaurants are within walking distance. We really liked Gyoza King. Cardero's was also very good if a bit pricey.

You can buy a "3 in 1" pass to visit the Vancouver Museum, the Maritime Museum, and the MacMillan Space Centre all located in Vanier Park just across the Burrard Bridge. All 3 were interesting to visit.
