The Westin Grand, Vancouver
Ranked #29 of 92 Hotels in Vancouver
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 7 May 2014

We stayed here for two nights and we had a large group that stayed here with us. The rooms were all pretty decently sized for a Downtown Vancouver hotel. Our room had a separate living area space from the bedroom.

My only complaint is that the bed is pretty small. It's more like a full size bed versus a queen and it felt so tight just sleeping on it with my husband and we are not large people. We are both pretty short and petite. However, it is a heavenly bed and I was able to sleep like a baby on it. It was firm and was really comfortable.

They have free wifi in the lobby but you have to constantly get a code to activate it and it expires within the hour.

The location of the place is nice which is on Robson street so very close to all the shopping and restaurants. It's also very close to the Skytrain which is about a 6-8 min walk from the hotel.

I love Westin's! They are all top notch in my book and this was another great experience!

I just returned from a 5 day stay at the Westin Grand Vancouver for a business trip. I could not have asked for a more pleasant stay. My corner suite was spacious, clean, comfortable and fresh feeling. The staff at the front desk were equally pleasant and gracious and always ready to help with information about the hotel and the city. Lastly, the hotel is in a very convenient location on Robson St--one of the main shopping and dining streets downtown. It is also just a 5-10 minutes walk to the convention center and water front, Yaletown and Gastown. Great place to stay and I would certainly stay here again if I come back to Vancouver.

Room Tip: The corner suite is a great value if you are staying with family--it has a separate bedroom, living...

Wifi solid not exceptional but not slow either from room with the paid daily of 15$.
Food at bar is very health conscious and rock star service from bell hop to concierge to wait staff. Good place to access the other Vancouver yalestown and Granville but walking distance to Alberni at black and blue and other great restaurants . Central place to access all Vancouver by foot instead of being on one side or other, great fitness Ctr . Westin catering to the successful yuppie with Vancouver flare

Dear detroncj,

Thank you for your review, my sincere apologies that we did not respond to your request to have the room vacuumed, this certainly does not sound like our staff to ignore a request given 3 times! I will speak with the housekeeping team regarding this as we pride ourselves on our guest service. We do offer complimentary internet in our lobby and restaurants, I'm sorry if the front desk did not inform you of this.

Stayed July 2013.

Very large room - likely the largest out of all the hotels I have stayed at in Vancouver. Lots of sitting space. Separate bedroom that is spacious.

Very good customer service. My bag did not arrive with me, and the front desk arranged to get me everything I needed - tooth paste, etc etc.

Being an SPG Gold I would have expected more..Actually ducting check-in the girl at Front Desk was extremely friendly when I mentioned I visited this hotel 5 yrs ago on Business trip/Chinese Concert (we were upgraded to cornered suite). She asked me if I would like to pick 1) a drink or 2) points I said 2) points and she had offered " free internet service" for my stay and she mentioned that 3 times as I asked her for directions how to get to a hairdresser appt I was late for. She asked me to call down if I have problems signing in to the internet which I did not have time to after I rushed upstairs threw my luggage down, and called a cab.

That weekend how could I forget it was a rainstorm and I was soaked buying groceries at IGA few doors down from Westin Grand. Soaked in my wet clothes through the broken Westin Umbrella I freeze to death as the heater warms up in my tiny room. Looking for bottle waters it says it is safe to drink from the tap, please ask front desk for bottle. Being Celiac I have to drink bottle water and I asked about the Internet as well. Apparently Mgmt on site wasn't very friendly told me water is safe to drink I should be Environment Friendly when I asked for Bottle Water even after I presented my SPG GOLD. I am sorry Westin Grand Please accept my apology and Trip Advisor please accept my apology for not being environment friendly!! I do Recycle and not use Plastic bags, make a greener environment but do I have to bring a doctors note with me the 5Ws? Please Westin GM I do have my own Privacy!!! When he asked me how many bottles, I gave up...I will buy water from IGA next door (Sigh..talk about Terrible service for Over-Priced hotel). He argued with me I was trying to cheat the system for "Free Internet" (Horrible Service). I told him I could tethered from my phone I have 3GB from Rogers Corporate Plan and I can call SPG in the morning than he gave me a password.
I didn't get an upgrade as I was supposed to, there was no heat in my room during my stay. I had a fever 103 I was so tempted to call an ambulance during my stay as I was busy throwing up and the hotel was super noisy. For $300/night service was awful. If I won a free night there I will not stay there ever again!! It is far from restaurants, the sky train station, the shopping, etc. Yes you are close to the hockey game and what view?? It's all blocked by condos. I asked Concierge who sat very comfortably cushioned up in her chair flipping pages of her latest gossip mag for directions, she told me to ask Valet. What does Concierge do??
I just want to cry

Hotel is typical westin, clean and decent, nothing to complain about. Wifi is the worst I have ever experienced, very slow and constantly down. Leaving in the morning I had to wait for 10 minutes for the elevator, I realized now why they have a tv with cbc news on every floor, something to keep you occupied while you wait. Also why only one security swipe on a very wide elevator cabin? Doesn't make it easy if you get into a crowded lift and have to ask people to swipe for you.
Too bad, otherwise this would be a decent choice in Vancouver as rooms are big, bright and clean.

Dear morr87,

Thank you for your review, I'm sorry that you were frustrated by our elevators, we only wish we could install more! Your comment on the security swipe is a good one, I will speak with our Engineering team to explore getting another one put on the other side of the elevator.

We are constantly upgrading our service and just this week are upgrading our internet capabilities making the connections stronger, this should assist with any issues you were having.

I hope that you will return to us in the future.
