What can I say, my daughter is a shop-a-holic. She just does not stop!!
Tony, Mum, Pu, Tia and I went to breakfast whilst Carmine went for a run. He did an hour and 10 mins. Good man, he needs to with the rate his gut is growing.
Carmine went on to spend some time at the conference and the rest of us went up in to Robson St (once …
I went for a run and walk with Sam, Ya and Tia around the Harbour. Lovely scenery. Saw VW CC and remembered I dreamt mine was stolen and had to order another one. On the way back I booked lunch at Lift for 12:30pm with us and and Tommy and Roxie. It was a bit cramped in the Lift and going up and down all the time with people getting in and out …
Beautiful, no rushing this morning. Tia and I wake at about 9am and sneak into bed with Ya and Pu. It is so great to have an interconnecting room. Carmine still sleeps.
Once Carmine arises, about 9.30am he and Pu go downstairs to meet others at the conference by 10am. They are going for a walk / run around the Sea Wall. Tia, Ya and I get …
We meet Tony for breakfast at 10am and Carmine then goes off for a meeting with Robert Woodcock and then another with Brendan McKenna. The conference has finished now so that should be the last of the formalities. The rest of us head upstairs to wait for him. We are then heading off to do the tour of the Capilano Suspension Bridge.
We then …
Well another early morning. At least I had a bit of a better sleep thanks to the melatonin that we purchased last night at the pharmacy. That was Libby's recommendation. I will try some more tonight. Apparently it resets your body clock. We had to meet in the lobby by 7.20am. An overcast start to the morning. The crew informing us that the weather …

Historical Traveler Reviews The Westin Bayshore, Vancouver
A group of friends met up to spend a 4 day weekend in November. We wanted to stay someplace rather nice. From the outside this hotel was everything we expected: great views, great location (right next to Stanley Park), and wonderful service. However for the price we paid for our rooms, there was a lot to be desired. It was not comparable to any Westin I've stayed in. The bathrooms were on par with an old motel, even the Heavenly Bed was not as nice as other Westins. I must say that you pay for the location and not the room.
Not worth the money
very crowded room. dark lighting in bathroom, couldn't even see the showerhead with showercurtain closed. They charge $4 for a small bottle of water. bed was comfortable though. pool area very disappointing, very retro unlike any other parts of hotel. some of the areas in this hotel needs serious renovation (stairwalls to the pool, washroom, etc) cost you $18 for the parking. just park on side street. it's free. Not worth your money. find somewhere else.
My husband and I stayed at this hotel in a King room with a view of the north shore, mountains and city for 3 nights and had such a great time.
Great location & room
Oct 22-25 2003 This hotel is old, but has been kept up to a modern standard. I tried to meet the staff person who was there when Howard Hughes lived there for a few months and I failed on my mission to ask him what he was like? My room was great and I liked that it had a sliding door that would open to let in the fresh harbour air. You can't beat the location to walk, run or rent a bike to discover Stanley Park or the sea wall. I was there for a conference and thats when the food can be bad in a hotel. Here it was very good. It has a indoor pool, hot tub,steam room etc, but I discovered it also had a large out door pool that was heated to a very comfortable level and was so nice in the cold night air to float and see all the stars. I would stay again my next visit!
Very Nice, Ideal Location
Staid here on vacation. We have a 1-year old and they have awesome child services. The hotel is in awesome location with Stanley Park on one side, and Robson street just 2 blocks up. My only complaint would be that the parking is expensive and not included . . . but such is life in a big city.
Overall, I'm not sure I would want to stay anywhere else other than this hotel when I go to Vancouver.
Great hotel! A highlight of our honeymoon!
What a great hotel! We were very pleasantly surprised upon our arrival.
The hotel was beautifully clean and extremely inviting. The staff was very friendly, the rooms were modern and updated with MAGNIFICENT LINENS (although they were a little small), and the ammenities endless.
I highly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting the FABULOUS City of Vancouver, B.C.
P.S. We thoroughly enjoyed watching the seaplanes go overhead as well.
Stayed here two nights (early August 2003). Very courteous staff, clean rooms, great location -- and those beds! Rooms slightly small, but not uncomfortably so, and well appointed. Highly recommended -- I'll be going back certainly.
Westin Bayshore is the best!
Stayed there in August with our two daughters The staff was friendly and professional. The setting right on the marina was lovely and was accessible for a walk or tour through Stanley Park. We took the girls to the aquarium where they even got to feed the sea lions! Our room was more than comfortable especially with our "Heavenly Beds" a Westin standard that if you have ever tried you would be spoiled for life! I was so glad that we chose the Westin Bayshore over alternate possibilities in Vancouver. It was always a place to look forward to going back to after a great day of activity in Vancouver!
Wonderful Service, Room & Food
I send everyone I know who is going to Vancouver, to the Bayshore. I was there in Feb. of 2000 for 11 nights. 7 business, and 4 to see Vancouver. You're not going to find more helpful, gracious staff at any hotel in the world. They make you feel like royalty. The rooms, dining room, lobby are all lovely. The food is excellent, and if you need a new addiciton, try their cream of mushroom soup - nothing like it anywhere. This is a REAL VALUE for the money. I'd stay there again in a heartbeat. In the US, we'd pay $250-300/night for a hotel like this in a city, and the service wouldn't be as good.
Westin Bayshore what a wonderful experience
My family and I had the chance to stay at the Westin Bayshore in Vancouver two years ago and it was great. The lobby of the hotel is very impressive and warm. Our room was overlooking the marina which is across from Stanley Park. The view was something else at sunset. My children had the choice of swimming outside or inside as the hotel has two very nice swimming pools. I had the chance to relax in their whirlpool and also their steam room and sauna. The hotel is conveniently located within walking distance to Stanley Park and all its wonderful attractions. You can also walk around the boardwalk and find wonderful seafood restaurants along the way. We highly recommend it.
