The Westin was certainly grand when it came to service, cleanliness and the corner rooms in the executive suites, particularly rooms #3003 and #3009. We arrived in the middle of the night with 2 tired and hungry boys after a 6 hour flight from Maui, and Phil at the front desk was kind enough to quickly register us and find food for my boys. The bell boys were prompt and helped us with the ice, extra blankets and pillows, and turn down the sofa bed. The next day, we had a complimentary continental breakfast at the Aria restaurant within the hotel, which surprisingly consisted of a buffet of any breakfast food you wanted. It was lovely! After breakfast, we sought the concierge's help for things to do in Vancouver in one day, and Lisa who was knowlegable and resourceful advised us to see the Aquarium, Stanley Park and the Telus Science World. My kids had a wonderful time at these venues, thanks to Lisa's suggestions. She also arranged for us to take a shuttle to Whistler the next day. I also have to acknowledge, the bell man who pushed a luggage carrier filled with 12 bags, 2 blocks for us to meet the bus since it was unable to pick us up at the hotel.
We stayed in a suite on the 30th floor. We had a corner room with floor to ceiling windows wrapping around so the view of the city and harbour was spectacular, especially at night with all the city lights. The room had a mini kitchenette, a living space, and a master bedroom. The bathroom was large with a separate bath and shower stall. Very clean and quite new! Upon our arrival, we also had complimentary fruits and water. Local calls were also free in the executive suites.
The location in the middle of downtown was very convenient. A supermarket was right next door and restaurants and Starbuck's at very close proximity.
All in all, we had a very pleasant stay, and if we were in Vancouver again, would not hesitate to choose the Westin Grand again.
