My husband and I came up from Seattle for two nights for a getaway after the holidays to celebrate our anniversary. We own a bakery in Seattle and we don't get away often, so this trip was very special to us. The hotel suite was wonderful - clean, comfortable; a great setting for relaxation and enjoying the downtown views. We slept beautifully both nights without interruption in our Heavenly Bed (even on New Years Eve!), The suite setup was perfect for us, since we were planning to do some work for our business mixed with dining out and enjoying the Vancouver shopping scene. The staff were very friendly and helpful and everything about the place was great, except...the reason I give this place four stars instead of five is: why do you charge $14.99 per 24 hours for Wifi? I used to travel for business every week ten years ago and back then it was standard to charge for internet access. But now, everyone is constantly connected to the internet, and the internet is available for free pretty much everywhere (including my small bakery in Seattle). So WHY on earth is internet an add-on cost at a luxury hotel like yours? I realize the Westin is not alone among its peers in charging for internet access but I find it very perplexing and absurd. Internet access is not a privilege anymore, it's a necessary part of everyday life. Yes, we paid the $14.99 to get access to our room's wifi, but we did it very grudgingly, and I'm now using your Wifi to post this review. Please let me know when you make Wifi free- I will definitely be back when that happens!
