With a one night gap in our travel schedule between Vancouver Island and Kauai, the Westin Bayshore in Vancouver provided an excellent bridge between destinations. The downtown location is close to great restaurants and Stanley Park and the hotel is well situated on the harbour with nice views from the rooms. The hotel is modern and clean with an expansive...

Our family of five stayed at the Westin Bayshore for five nights. We were upgraded to a fantastic suite with a living room and enough space for us to spread out, which if you travel with three kids you know how important that is. The location was perfect for us. It was very close to Stanley Park, and we walked... More

The hotel was as expected: big hotel, Westin brand, nice staff, small gym and small pool. Good location with good view from the rooms. Comfortable conference venue, several cafes and fast food places around. About 20min walk to the shopping area. Very quiet - even with jet lag, sleeping was not a problem. Made friends with one of the concierges... More

We stayed for almost two weeks while on a recent business / vacation trip to Vancouver. It was ideal for a family of four (including a preteen and a teenager).

We booked into this hotel because it was close to Stanley Park. We enjoyed the opportunity to go out for a long walk in the morning by the ocean. The hotel room was very nice and clean.

As an SPG gold member who loves Starwood, I have to say I was incredibly disappointed. My biggest gripe is that management actively blocked the ability to hook a laptop into the TV. For a business traveler this is outrageous. The concierge and check in were understaffed with long wait times. The concierge was pleasant but not knowledgeable. The elevators... More

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.
