Service, view,comfort, all at the highest level. Tower room facing Coal harbour and the North shore mountains. Right from the valet, to the front desk, to service staff you encounter as you wander around the beautiful property, all smiled and acknowledged you. Special thanks to Alysha, and Bryce for a wonderful experience.

This was my first time to Vancouver, and what a wonderful hotel the Westin Bayshore turned out to be! The hotel itself is very clean, modern, and has all the amenities that one would need. The staff are exceptionally service-oriented, professional and friendly. Though pricey, the breakfast buffet is a real treat. The location is what we really loved though... More

This is a very nice hotel that sits right on the water and views are extraordinary. Everything was extremely clean and the food was great. Make sure and see the concierge to book local attraction. There is so much to see and do and such a unique big city.

This place is in a great location! Right off Coal Harbor, Stanley Park, Denman St and lovely walk along shore to Waterfront center. You can tell it looks like in rich and expensive area, but as mention, you just walk a couple block and it's everything you visit and want to experience in downtown area.

Way overpriced! This is especially if you are a local. It's a nice hotel and good service but the value is horrible. There's so many hidden extra costs that you're better off to stay at a nicer hotel or save some money and go elsewhere.

We frequently stay at Starwood properties and are gold level members. On past trips to Vancouver, we've stayed in much better hotels, very close to the Bayshore, also waterfront.

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.
