The property is great and we had a good one night stay. Even had complimentary dessert and wine to celebrate our special occasion. One big downside is that they have stopped offering the breakfast buffet on weekdays, which is one of the things we were looking forward to given their buffet is quite good. Our little one enjoys the breakfast buffets as well and we called the hotel ahead to confirm. They mentioned that it is ongoing but didn’t mention that it’s unavailable on weekdays. If we would have known then we would have adjusted our dates accordingly.
We stayed at the Bayshore since the days of Trader Vic's. It is a Vancouver landmark and a majestic property on the shores of the Harbour and a breathtaking view of the mountains and ocean. It is a little out of the way of downtown Vancouver and a walk to go anywhere, so when the construction and renovations took over we chose other hotels. It is now completed and our first trip back was amazing and busy. The hotel now has a buzz as the place to be and the empty cavernous areas are filled with bars and restaurants. It has changed the atmosphere and made any change of ven
Beautiful view.Extremely friendly staff Fantastic restaurant for dinner and breakfast!!! Swam in the inside pool and outside pool.Such a great experience!! The setting is gorgeous !!! Would definitely come back with the grandkids
We stayed Jan 12-14th and had a great stay. The hotel room was extremely comfortable and the heavenly bed did not disappoint. Hotel staff were extremely nice and helpful. The restaurants have great food, wine and reasonable prices. The location is great, in a very safe area, and is close to Stanley Park and many other downtown attractions. We will return and highly recommend the Westin Bayshore.
This was a great place to stay the night before we left for an Alaskan Cruise. Great harbor location. We were here with another couple. Our room had a great balcony overlooking the harbor. The rooms were wonderful and the location was great for walking along the harbor and close to great restaurants as well. A great Marriott representation of the brand!
Open since 1961, and called a “true child of the 1960s” by CN Traveler, the Westin Bayshore represents the quintessential Vancouver experience: On the one hand, you’ve got the powerful Pacific Ocean at your doorstep, back-dropped by the North Shore Mountains; on the other hand, you have the famous Vancouver Seawall, Stanley Park and West End either right outside, or a few minutes’ walk away. Really, it doesn’t get anymore “Vancouver” than that! In any event, my partner and I were staying at Westin Bayshore on business (conference). It was our first time here and, I have to say, we were quite pleased with our experience. The hotel, despite its age, has been beautifully maintained and modernized. The lobby, with its marble flooring, highlights a classic luxury – something further entrenched by the polished staff, be it the doorman or those working the check-in desk. They perform yeoman’s duty to ensure a comfortable and smooth experience. Entering our room, we found the accommodations to be cozy. The off-white/grey walls, patterned floor, classic headboard, light fixtures, flat screen TV, desk and king size bed all lent to a relaxing, warm atmosphere. The bathroom, with its walk-in shower was also nicely appointed. This was my first time sleeping on the signature “Heavenly Beds” and, let me say, believe the hype! The bed was super cozy and resulted in a restful sleep for each of our two nights. Beyond the comfortable room, guests might also be interested in the Westin Bayshore’s celebrity history. Over its 60+ years, this hotel has served host to many cultural and political heavyweights, including Queen Elizabeth II and her husband Prince Phillip. Princess Diana also stayed here on a separate occasion. The eclectic Howard Hughes also stayed at the Westin for a 6-month period in 1972 (and apparently wasn’t ever seen the whole time!). The suite in which he stayed has since been aptly named the “Howard Hughes Suite.” I admit that’s actually really cool! While the Westin Bayshore isn’t exactly in the heart of downtown, it’s close enough to numerous attractions and amenities sure to please. As already noted, Stanley Park is minutes away and a plethora of shops + restaurants await you in Vancouver’s dynamic West End. As such, we highly recommend this classic hotel!…
Here for a work conference. My room was fantastic. Very clean with daily room service. The conference centre was a great location. Breakfast and lunches provided were all excellent. Good food and great service from all hotel staff. The shower had lots of pressure. The views were great as well.
A terrific Westin property, right on the water and with great views of the amphibian planes taking off and landing, all day. It is a 20 minute walk from downtown and public transport (bus) is a 10 minute walk. The Hotel itself feels like a resort. Helmed by a dynamic Aussie, Paul Cannings, it has a terrific concierge desk and receptionists who are genuinely pleased to welcome you. The bell desk also has some very senior, humorous, good-natured blokes. I particularly enjoyed the complimentary 2 hour bicycles that guests are lent for a trip around Stanley Park. On a nice day, it is an unforgettable experience. Set aside at least 90 minutes. We would stay there, again, in a heartbeat.
The Westin Bayshore is a stellar hotel in many ways. The rooms are quite nice and spacious. Some have harbor views. The front desk was very helpful. The best thing about this hotel is the location. It is right on the harbor, steps away from Stanley Park. There are several good restaurants a short walk away. It is a bit expensive, but worth it. The only negative is the parking situation. Parking is a short block away in front of the hotel in a public parking area. The hotel bills you for parking, which is pricey. The lot itself had VERY small spaces and was very cramped overall with not a lot of openings. Other than that, we had a wonderful stay.
Stayed here for 3 nights but didn't make use of the spa, gym, pool, nor made requests to the service staff, am not able to add much on the feedback most reviewers had to give apart from that they were not observant enough to refill the body wash which had emptied. Had one meal at the restaurant, music was loud, food was good, service at the restaurant was patient and friendly despite us being a large boisterous group. The hotel is very large, feels it's quite a distance to get from one end to another. The surrounding Coal Harbour is idyllic when the weather is right. It is a beautiful stroll to Stanley Park and gorgeous place to depart on a cruise from. Gastown is also within walking distance to the east, while English Bay and Robson Street to the Southwest.
