      We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Westin Bayshore. We got upgraded to a room overlooking the marina, so it was fun waking up to all the beautiful yachts every morning.

      Thankfully, our floor was very quiet, so we didn't have an issue with sleeping. The only thing we didn't like was the bed, which I know Westin touts as their "Heavenly Bed." We just don't care of the softness of the bed, nor do we enjoy flat feather pillows.

      Other than that, we thought our location was perfect: close enough to everything we wanted to do/see, but not smack dab in the center of the busy, bustling city.

      I visited the hotel with my family recently and used the female restroom in the lobby. The male janitor had placed a yellow horizontal stick blocking the restroom entrance door to indicate that he was about to clean the restroom. Thus, we could not exit the restroom and the male janitor just stood there and avoided my gaze. We needed to duck below the obstruction that he had placed at the doorway in order to exit the restroom. We had never seen this at other hotels.

      A more sensible alternative would be the usage of a yellow floor cone, or the janitor could have removed the obstruction when guests needed to exit the restroom. I was appalled at the lack of training for the cleaning staff and the absence of courtesy. Staff should always yield to guests. I did not expect this unprofessionalism from Westin. We feel discouraged to visit Westin again.

      My wife and I came here for a weekend getaway from Washington and really enjoyed ourselves! The view from out room was spectacular, the staff was very friendly, and the hotel is very close to a lot of little restaurants, coffee bars, a park, and the docks. Definitely would come back here!

      I just had a wonderful stay here for a conference I was attending. This was my first time in Canada & service was beyond my expectations. Every interaction I had with staff was golden. The bellhop Thomas was the nicest man I've ever encountered at a hotel. Not only did he give me suggestions on things to do in Vancouver but he also helped me figure out what gifts I should bring back to my family. After coming in from dinner, he stopped me with a little bottle of maple syrup & said "For your husband!". I had been struggling trying to find a thoughtful gift for my Virgo husband. This was beyond sweet! I truly appreciated the hospitality & would recommend The Westin Vancouver Bayshore to anyone!

      Location was fantastic. The free rental bikes were clutch for bopping around the waterfront and Stanley park. The firepits outside were nice and the outdoor musicians were really good. Housekeeping went out of their way to secure us a humidifier (pretty sure they ran to the store to buy one for us) which was above and beyond. Only heads up is I would recommend having a room that faces the courtyard as opposed to the marina if you plan on sleeping in. The sea planes running constant routes to Victoria start early in the morning and are LOUD!

      North side a Vancouver near Marina Bay.

      Elegantly designed and royal. This place was like a hotel on the Vegas strip as far as its decor. Gold & wooden accents, and wide hallways. Greenery and large windows that provide lots of light.

      FOOD & DRINK:
      Full buffet breakfast with everything you can think of. An omelette station, scrambled eggs, bacon and turkey sausage. French toast and a waffle station. Cantaloupe, grapes, oranges. Coffee and orange juice to drink plus more. Everything was phenomenal. All the produce was ripe

      PRICE: $$$
      For this place you think you'd be paying an arm and a leg, but come here on the right night and you'll get a room comparable to any place around. Stayed in a room with the king bed under $275 a night on a Friday night with a same night booking.

      Swimming pools, hot tubs, outdoor saunas, winter domes on the patio that seat 4. A few restaurants, buffet breakfast, fitness center with wall to wall pelotons and another with a matted floor for aerobic type workouts and weights.

      Everyone was super accommodating. Staff was professional and kind. We had to book a same night booking because our Airbnb didn't work out for that night and we were able to get in.

      This hotel is perfectly located. It is close to Stanley Park and within walking distance of many attractions and restaurants.
      The staff were courteous. They made us feel welcomed and comfortable. We were in a room that overlooked the marina and the mountains. The room was well-sized with a very comfortable bed, a sofa chair, a desk and an ottoman. It had a big bathroom. Loved the room size.
      The room had a coffee machine and a Starbucks on location which is convenient. One can also get a bike for 2 hours (at no cost) which is great because Vancouver is very bike-friendly. The breakfast buffet was elaborate and worth $39 if you want to splurge on yourself.
      We would definitely stay at this hotel again.

      I don't know where to start. I booked this hotel due to a housing emergency, my place became flooded. I looked online for reservations and found a good deal. I like talking to people so I called the reservation line. Side note online and telephone reservations are the same rate. Unfortunately despite the online saying they have rooms, the person on the telephone said "no rooms" and tried to direct me to their sister hotel for a room twice as expensive. I said no thanks. I went back online and booked our room. We were given a nice corner suite with a semi ocean view which is pretty cool. The ac is what I love and sadly it isn't very strong so we get a nice warm 22 degrees and not 18-19 which I like. The indoor pool is heated, and the outdoor pool had a nice vibe. If you don't mind walking 5-10 minutes you can get some amazing ramen around here.

      View from our room.

      For gold elite status this hotel offers a standard room next to the elevators and paper thin It's definitely outdated compared to other hotels, feels like a courtyard inside. The design of the shower is awful, no door and it's not like I was aggressive showering, but water splashing onto the floor and soaking the foot towel and bathroom floor each time, also made for one person. For how close the vanity is to the shower and toilet, it might be a slipping hazard and maybe a lawsuit down the line! Also windows are transparent, everyone outside can see you! Pretty sure there is no turn down service, the only thing different we noticed in the room was our bed sheets were pulled up, they didn't bother to throw away the old coffee cup or touch the towels hanging around the room (there's only one bathroom hook). walls. 3 stars cause the view was the best thing even though it was only for standing. Location is great, next to Stanley park and Denman street. You can watch seaplanes land and takeoff. And it's close to the bridge for easy uber across access. The restaurants are good, and so is the outdoor area where they have entertainment in the evening. I think this hotel just needs a facelift. If you're going to take the main spot on the Harbour, make it worth the cost!
