We return to this hotel whenever in Vancouver. To be sure there are sexier and much newer hotels, but this is a Vancouver classic! And there is no better location in the entire city, for views of Stanley Park, Coal Harbour, seaplanes, North Shore mountains, and much more. You're right on both the seawall walk if you want the glorious...

We stayed two nights in Westin Bayshore, before we left for an Alaska cruise. We enjoyed the location with direct accesss to sea wall. We had good space in the room, but the whole hotel seems to be a bit old-fashioned. Our city view room turned out to have good view on the hotels reception desk (through the roof windows...

We chose this hotel for its location and we were not disappointed in that, you can walk for miles from here or you can relax on the seawall and watch the boats. We paid extra to stay in the tower so that we had a harbor view and were a little disappointed in that, our room had more of a...

Thank you for your feedback and your recent stay. Although you had a nice view, we agree that a higher floor room would offer some better views of the harbor. Glad you found our staff friendly. We hope you come back to give us another try. See you soon. Be well.

We only had the pleasure of spending a short time at this hotel but what a amazing stay we had. I would see seaplanes taking off and landing right outside my balcony. It was an amazing harbor view with yachts and sailboats sailing by. Every morning the seabirds would wake me up to the sounds of the sea! Ahoy matey,...

I always stay at The Westin Bayshore when I am in Vancouver. The location is beautiful, quiet, and safe for a solo female traveller. The staff here are the best of any hotel I have ever stayed at. My dog is treated like royalty. Rooms are always very clean and very comfortable. Love this place. Won't stay anywhere else!

Returned to this hotel after many years. Still grand. Great waterfront location, especially after the coal harbour area has been fixed up so nicely. Immediate access to seawall promenade and bike path, with many dining options within short walk. Also short walk to Denman street and English Bay areas, with coffee shops and restaurants. Restaurant has very nice buffet breakfast....

I stayed at this hotel for four nights with my family and found it to be a terrific location - within walking distance of Canada Place and Gastown, close to many cafes and restaurants along the seawall and a charming spot to watch the boats and seaplanes coming and going.

The Westin Bayshore is a very good hotel. At the beginning we had a room next to an elevator, which was kind of annoying because it started being busy at 6 am.

I stayed here for business and it was very comfortable. The walls are a bit thin so you do hear the people next door. Clean and pretty spacious and in a great location. Had a beautiful view of the harbor. Close to great restaurants!

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown
Vancouver's business district, the Downtown area is bustling with smartly-dressed folks balancing their lattes and briefcases to and from work. The area's plethora of contemporary commercial, residential, and corporate spaces has bred a landscape of nouveau restaurants, chain cafes, and upmarket shopping options. However, located right on the waterfront of Vancouver's energetic Harbour, Downtown is a also popular public meeting spot, with a massive public library and convention center attracting a bevy of visitors both local and not, as well as a hotspot for the arts, being home to some of Vancouver's most cutting-edge galleries. With behemoth architecture and a professional air, Downtown means business.

“Get a harbour view (ask for upgrade at checkin). You can also "Go Green", for-go room cleaning and get either $5 food/beverage coupon or 500 reward points. I chose the $5 and effectively had a free starbucks every morning - located in the hotel lobby.”
