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.

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.

Bayshore great - depending on roomview

Great location, excellent service, nearby bars and restaurants. However I feel the room descriptions are obtuse and we were disappointed with a suite stuck in a corner with a view and balcony over a shingle roof. Tower De luxe actually means Harbour View, Traditional room means no view! Traditionla Marina view means partial / obscured view of harbour. I had expected a better view having paid for a suite!! Come on Westin, tell it like it is! Also the health suite was undergoing a refurb so facilities more restricted (Sept 2009)and late check out changing /shower was unavailable.

Nicely located hotel

Very convenient location close to downtown madness but far enough for the street noise. Love the bayshore walk, very quaint and safe. Has a homely atmosphere because close by are real apartments and condos where real family stays.

Great location and friendly service!

Walking distance to Robson St. And beautiful Stanley Park. Friendly service. Nice indoor and outdoor pools. Soft bed. We will stay there again for sure. Took 1 star out only because the restaurant "the Grill" was below average. Otherwise, I recomend this hotel to anyone. Perfect for Family Vacation!!! I encourage everyone to pay a little extra to get the room with the view of the bay. It's so worth it!

Wonderful location, great room!

This was by far one of the best hotels that I have stayed in a long time. I found all the amenities that I required, being disabled, they provided me with a beautiful suite with an amazing shower where I could sit while bathing and not worry about falling. The room was extremily clean and the service was excellent. Plus it was at a prime location, where you could just walk to beautiful restaurants or museums, or wherever I felt like doing.Thank you so much.
