“Beautiful setting for a great hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 January 2014

I recently stayed at the Bayshore for a one-week business trip/ Excellent hotel in a perfectly Vancouver and beautiful west coast setting. The Bayshore is only minutes from Stanley Park and right on the waterfront--in fact the path that runs by hotel connects it to both the Park and the Waterfront Sky Train station (about a 15 minute walk). Some rooms are bright although some of my colleagues had smaller, more dimly lit rooms. Excellent service. My only real criticism would be of the restaurant, which seems under-par for this hotel, and the bar which is also lacking.

We stayed here over Christmas. The location is fantastic and the service is wonderful. We decided to move to a larger room after our first night and they were terrific with the price and location. Waking up to a view of Stanley Park was great. Even the parking was pretty good. It is in a private parade that was pretty secure so self parking was very convenient. Do try Carderros next store. Terrific food and service. Overall I felt that this hotel deserves an excellent rating.

Room Tip: Book a lower price room then check on an upgrade when you check in. This approach saved us over $40...

We stayed only for two days and one night but this is another great Starwood property.
Our room overlooked the harbor, even though we had lousy weather the first day the second morning gave us an amazing view.

All the staff we dealt with were friendly and accommodating, check-in and and check-out were smooth.
The room was clean, updated and perfect for us.
Overall I can't nit pick a thing and we will certainly stay at this hotel next time in Vancouver

Room Tip: You should absolutely ask for a harbor view room.

We stayed here in November as part of a trip to Vancouver & Tofino. We had booked well in advance and so we got a very good deal price-wise. We were also able to confirm we had a room with a better view & balcony, which was appreciated. The room itself was clean, quiet, functional and nicely decorated. The view of Stanley Park & the marina was just lovely. We were able to use the hotel as a base for our tour of Vancouver as was within walking distance to many shops, sights and strolls along the harbour. Easy egress for the trips we did by car too -- close to a lot of main arteries to travel within the city. Staff was friendly, helpful and welcoming - only slight glitch was the parking is offsite - and they forgot to give us the required hotel pass (or tell us about it!) so when we ended up going out for a drive the parking attendant wanted us to pay - and we couldn't back up to go back to the hotel & correct it - as cars were behind us getting impatient. We showed our hotel key and the attendant ended up grudgingly letting us out (probably because of the honking cars behind us) -- and we got the proper passes -- but it was a stressful start to the day that ought to have been avoided. So remember to ask about parking as it is not obvious! We didn't use the pools or workout room, but they seemed nice and clean. We also didn't eat at the restaurant, as the breakfast prices were too high (go to the White Spot diner across the street for a fraction of the cost). Overall, we loved the room and the location and would definitely recommend it as a base for exploring Vancouver!

Room Tip: Stay in the tower rooms -- higher up -- and ask to be facing the marina or Stanley Park.

For us three, including my little two-year-old, it was the perfect place in Vancouver. The hotel itself is very pleasant, staff is professional and friendly and the location is great: water front, Stanley Park and Downtown are just in front of the door! The breakfast buffet is also recommendable with a rich selection and everything is fresh. We would happily stay there again.

I stayed with Westin Bayshore for a conference and it was a super hotel. From the team on the front desk, to the concierge team, and the friendly bar and catering teams, I found them all friendly and welcoming.

The views from the hotel were amazing, and it was ideally positioned to walk into Stanley Park or downtown Vancouver.

The beds were comfortable but I felt the rooms were just slightly "tired" and due for redecoration soon. Nevertheless they were warm clean and comfortable, and I recommend the hotel highly.

We are staying here for a post holiday getaway. The location is very nice - next to Stanley Park and on the water and easy to walk anywhere. Our room is nice - seems to have been recently remodeled, especially the huge bathroom. Super comfy beds. Nice views too and good exercise area. My only complaint is that they charge for wifi. Who charges for that these days?
