This hotel has the best view of the ocean, mountains and shipping docks along the waterfront. (Room 1590). And most important, it has the best customer service anywhere. Along with all of the little things customer service provided us with during our 4 day stay, other "guests" next to us were screaming and swearing during the night. With great professionalism,...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 20 February 2017 via mobile

While the Westin Bayshore is not the newest hotel in town it continues to impress me. The location, for the outdoor enthusiast can not be beat. If you don't mind walking you can hit many of Vancouver's highlight from here. Stanley Park is a stones throw away. A walk up Denman gets you to Robson Street and a few more...

I stayed at this hotel for a recent conference. Some of the hotel rooms were a bit dated and could use a refresh, but otherwise were in good condition. Had a fantastic view from my room. One complaint that I heard from people that were staying in the tower was that the elevators were very slow. There was only one...

It isn't the cheapest hotel, but if you want to treat yourself, this is place to do it. Rooms are clean, very comfortable, with incredible views out over Stanley Park, the harbor, or city views. Beds are extremely comfortable - I didn't want to get out of bed in the morning. Hotel staff are exceptionally helpful and friendly. Great location,...

This hotel was average at best. I expect much better from a Westin brand hotel. Clean to the main areas of the public view, but I used the stairs and they were dirty, cold and very old looking. The staff were good, but this place needs an update!

The room was very comfortable, and the staff were pleasant and helpful. My wife enjoyed the spa, and the products that they offered. A shuttle service to/from the airport would have been a good service.

Excellent service and location of hotel was a close walk to Gastown and excellent restaurants. The conference room facilities and IT were perfect for our needs. Spa and indoor pool were great for family during the day.

I've stayed at many Westin hotels, travelling for both business and pleasure, usually staying at the Westin Grand in Vancouver but was attending meetings at the Bayshore. The Bayshore is in a great location right on the water and within walking distance of Gastown, sea wall and other great sites that make Vancouver great. The staff was nice enough and...

All of the staff great, genuinely sevice oriented. I attended a large conference and all aspects very professional. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend for business or pleasure stays. The setting right on the waterfront very beautiful with acess to walkways , marina, and shopping. Room was quiet and of course the 'heavenly ' bed!

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.
