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.

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.

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.

Heart of Downtown

The hotel is centrally located, the staff was helpful and attentive, the rooms were kinda bland, and showing some age, there was one time I called 5 minutes ahead for the valet to have my car ready, but when I got down there, I had to wait 5 more minutes. In room dining was decent the salmon was a bit dry, but the tomato soup was awesome.

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.

Superb service, comfort and location

This was our final day and night on vacation and simply topped off a wonderful trip to British Columbia. The staff was very helpful - concierge mapped a downtown Vancouver bus trip (public transportation) for us to get to a specific store on the other end of town. The bed was incredibly comfortable. The buffet breakfast was fantastic. The location was right on the harbor with walking and bike paths and just a short walk to Stanley Park.

Vancouver BC

I Have stayed at this hotel on multiple occasions and it is in a perfect location; walking distance to downtown and stanley park. Views of Coal Harbour are great so make sure to get one unless you rather face downtown. My Wife and I went to Cin Cin for dinner and it is great (make reservation). We rented bikes right next to the hotel and took a ride around stanley park along the seawall. Then of to a Canucks (NHL) game. Overall Vancouver is a great city to just relax and get away.

Honeymoon getaway

We had a great time, but it was a short stay. the breakfast buffet was totally overpriced , but good. The concierge had great advice but his 35-40 min walk turned out to take 55 min to an hour. It was nice though. The waitress at the breakfast was great, helpful, friendly and very outgoing.
