Leaving pets for hours

aussietraveller1919 (Oakville, Canada) on Sep 14, 2023

We recently stayed at the Westin Bayshore, Vancouver. The Hotel is quite possibly the best location to enjoy the beauty of the area. That being said, the Hotel was exceptionally busy and many guests had dogs in the rooms. While we are dog owner's having the dog in the Hotel was not the issue, it was the dog was left for hours at a time - we would go out for a few hours and then return - the same pup was barking - we remained in the room for quite a few hours - four hours actually dog remained distressed and barking. We finally and reluctantly brought the issue to the Front Desk Staff - and we suggested they limit pets on specific floors and possibly beside other guests who also travel with their pets. Unless this issue is addressed, we will not after 25 years of staying at this location ever return.

We came for the view, we got A VIEW!

The view was amazing once we got the bell boy to rearrange the room and move the large table from in front of the balcony doors. The bed was heavenly! I really mean it, it was sooo comfortable. The hotel had everything you could possibly need.

I had not been to the Westin Bayshore in several years, and I finally had a chance to return. It was even more beautiful than I remembered. I stayed in the "Tower," which offered a quiet, secluded view of the docks with the Harbour off in the distance. The view from the Tower has been my desktop background for years. The location is ideal: a short walk to Stanley Park. The room itself was refurbished since my last stay: soothing and plush furnishings. As expected, the bathrooms (there were two) were exceptionally well-appointed. As in the past, the staff were extraordinary: they smiled, stopped and said hello, even remembered my name and preferred coffee order. This was in the midst of large, busy hotel. The Bayshore exemplifies the Westin brand: a focus on peace and wellness, polished and professional staff, and enviable bedding and bathrooms. I have stayed in quite a few hotels in Vancouver, and the Bayshore wins every time. I did not ask for anything special as a Bonvoy Platinum member, but I have no doubt that the Bayshore would have accommodated any reasonable request. The only downside was minimal: I had hoped for a "smart" TV that could show Netflix or Prime, or perhaps "cast" from my own devices. This is becoming quite common even at less premium brands. But why would anyone care too much about the television? Just look out the window and admire the view!

Great hotel in Coal Harbor

Great location in Coal Harbor. Easily walkable to Stanley Park, the sea wall path, cruise ship terminal and Gastown. Room had a great view of the pool and harbor. Suggest getting the breakfast package. The wait staff at breakfast was very friendly and engaging.
