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.

Location, location, location

We probably wouldn't even consider another hotel in Vancouver - this was the perfect blend of spectacular scenery, urban convenience, Westin comfort, and outdoor recreation. The Stanley Park/Coal Harbour location influences everything about this hotel for the better, even the things that otherwise would not be very good. For example, although the hotel bar offerings are only OK, the chance to sit outside and look at snow-capped mountains and blue herons sailing past the hotel makes ordinary bar food taste delightful. The health club is underwhelming - but who cares when the Stanley Park trails are literally right outside the door? The things that were already great, like our room, were only enhanced by views of the harbour and the park.

Very good Hotel and Location

The Bayshore Hotel was very nice and clean, great location and very friendly and knowlegable staff. The room was clean and comfortable. My wife and I would stay there agin without hesitation. I don't have any information or recommedation as to the food service's at the hotel as we ate out at various other locations.

Great location for the runner.

The Westin Bayshore was very enjoyable and its proximity to Stanley Park made for one of the best runs after work that I have ever had. Another important feature is its closeness to a couple of very nice restaurants that are only a very short walk down the boardwalk. The rooms are renovated and the bed is incredibly soft and lights out occurs very fast.

Very nice restaurants with outdoor decks to enjoy awesome views of portions of Stanley Park and even watch the float planes land on the water right in front of your eyes.

Great hotel, great location

The hotel is right on the sea wall, making it very easy to go for a run and enjoy the view. The hotel is also right by Stanley Park. Our room was very comfortable with a great view of Coal Harbour. Good restaurants nearby, within easy walking distance.

Stanley Park is very close, great for running, biking, etc., and we enjoyed the Vancouver Aquarium in Stanley Park. The Lift restaurant is very close, on the harbour -- great food, wine and views.

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.

WESTIN BAYSHORE, JUNE 28-JULY 5, 2009

The Westin Bayshore is in a great location on the West End of Vancouver. We had wonderful service from the Consierge and also the onsite City Tour staff who helped us plan some great outings. There are whale watching, plane tours, bike rentals and Stanley Park all easily within walking distance, as well as tons of restaurants, and coffee shops. Hotel staff was wonderful, and we liked the "green" options of easily letting maid service know when towels or bedding need laundering. Heavenly beds are as advertised: Heavenly!

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

There are "Hop On Hop Off" buses that provide overall city tours, good for first time visit, first day overview of the city. Ours was $29 first day, $6 add on second day, and goes to all the main sections of Vancouver: Chinatown, Gastown, Canada Place, etc. There is also a $2 per person/day trolley inside Stanley Park- which is also fine except often packed during peak hours. (Ignore ads for "Free" Trolley) City bus transit is excellent, $2.50 for 90 minutes w/ transfers, across all types of city transit (sky train, sea bus, city bus). Best inexpensive (by Vancouver standards) lunch: JapaDogs, just a short walk down the Seawalk!!
