    Very good

    The view of the marina and harbour were wonderful. Always something happening - floatplanes arriving/taking off; cruise ships coming and going, and other boats pottering about. The staff were exceptionally helpful and efficient. There was adequate hanging space and drawers. We requested crockery mugs which were promptly brought, to replace the cardboard "take out" style beakers in the bedroom.

    For the price, the room was small. There were no courtesy bath robes.There was no easy chair, just a "day bed"/chaise longue which was stained, and not comfortable. There were flimsy plastic cups in the bathroom. The standard of cleaning was poor, and slapdash - eg new toilet-paper wrapper left on the sink-surround. Bed making was very poor - eg. sheets not straightened.

    Superb

    Superb location and very friendly staff

    Attraction of low room rates was overshadowed by extra charges for parking and room service. In addition, the "standard king room" which we booked turned out to be two double beds.

    Superb

    The location was perfect. Great views of the harbor, mountains, and beautiful Stanley Park.

    Room was a little small, but balcony view made up for it.

    Exclusive

    The location is perfect for the seawall and Stanley Park. It is on the harbour and there are quite a few good restaurants around. We stayed there because of the proximity to Stanley Park and the seawall trails. The food was very good in the hotel and the service was also very good. When the bed was too high for my disabled husband to get into, they came and removed the frame so he could get in it. The bed was very comfortable. French balcony with skliding doors looking onto the harbour.

    Paying for the internet connection. This is usually free. I elected to do without the connection. We also found that to park for $36 a day was rather high compared to other places we have stayed. One has to keep in mind that this is a high end hotel, so probably it is a fair price. We are seniors and this was a treat so we just knew about the cost before we booked.

    The room with view on the harbour is really great. Hotel is well located, easy to walk to Stanley park and downtown.

    Its proximity to the city and downtown areas is perfect for walking to. The bike rentals are near and were perfect for riding the whole circle around the city.

    getting off the elevator an seeing all these brown doors to the end of the hallway. Maybe get a different color. (you asked)

    Fabulous

    The Lobby and services offered within the hotel - very convienent the staff were very courteous and helpful; great attitue and cheerful! Food Was wonderful at the restaurants within the hotel as well as we appreciated the pool and exercise room.

    We have stayed at the westin before and I remeber the beds being more comfortable than the once we had. The bed we had this time around was extremely uncomfortable; felt like the mattress needed to be changed - We both woke up sore. I also felt the room design was outdated. The shower did not have enough pressure and the water left our skin feeling sticky. The other issue that I am sure isnt a common occurance; when we arrived our room was not ready as there was confusion as to the size of bed we wanted despite my call to the hotel the previous day to confirm. We ended up having to wait 2 hours for our room to be ready but the hotel did hold our luggage for us which was really nice.

    Superb

    The location with respect to downtown Vancouver shops and restaurants. Lovely view over the river and harbour area. Good sized outdoor pool / relaxation area.

    Indoor pool and changing facilities were not as good as other hotels we stayed during our holiday.

    The location is simply the very best location of any hotel I have ever stayed in a city. The rooms are great, the service is great, the breakfast is great, the people are great. By now you get the picture.

    If you do not like this hotel you need help !

    I liked that there was a lot of value for the money and that the staff was very friendly and helpful. I also really likes the location and view and all of the amenities

    I liked everything other than the shower was dirty.

    The room was clean, well positioned over the harbour, and quiet.

    The only thing I can write here is I would prefer they had individal coffee pots for each customer at breakfast time. I had to keep asking for more coffee, which I felt guilty about.

    Good

    The location.

    I had stayed at the Westin Bayshore some years ago and was surprised to see the lack of upgrades. Firstly, the lobby is even more sterile than it was then. There was no warmth whatsoever to the place. Secondly, regarding the hallways and rooms themselves - That unfortunate colour they painted the woodwork in the hallways was downright depressing. I realized that the rooms were upgraded but again, with no charm whatsoever. I was very disappointed overall. The location is the only thing the hotel has going for it. Sorry but I have to be frank.

    Exceptionally comfortable and well designed rooms, quick and efficient lifts (no waiting around for lifts), great restaurant with a range of delicious and healthful items and excellent location. Spa is brilliant - highly recommend!
