If you can stay somewhere else, do it, because it is no where near worth the money. I wasn't thrilled from the moment I arrived as it was mayhem out front with cars and cabs everywhere with little to no movement. Finally got somewhere out of the rain and was told the parking was across street, in a parking garage underground with no access to the hotel and I"d have to walk back up and across the street to get back to the hotel. It' Vancouver and rains a lot, not an ideal setup. I get in, check in, service was great, but a whole ton of stuff wasn't mentioned but will get to that after. I get to the room, open the drapes and "patio door" and it's just hootin' and hollerin' from room to room as apparently there's a country music concert in the hotel. Super duper. Last thing I'll note is, you know those super small, motel-style tubs that hold a cup and a quarter of water in them, about 16 inches off the floor? Yeah, that's the tub in the room, with a nice rain shower head installed to distract you from it. So weird and cheap. But, BUT, the worst thing was getting the invoice after I left (here's a tip, don't just drop the keys and leave, get your invoice and go through it before you go!). They have two wifi options but the log-in is super awkward and then they ended up charging me $20 for it anyway PLUS $1 for GST on that as well! They charged me $3.65 for a Destination Marketing Fee; $8.57 for MRDT, whatever that is; $34.50 for overnight self-parking which wasn't mentioned AT ALL (like why do you take a license plate if you're charging me? Why wouldn't I just pay for the parking garage myself at half the cost? Why would you tell me I'm paying for parking ahead of time!? Again what a cheap way to gouge customers); a $2.14 charge for 'Tax-GST Other'; and lastly an $8.29 charge as a Translink Tax. There are plenty of better options that have a nice location in Vancouver and I highly recommend you explore them first.
Okay but clearly in decline

Still good but clearly in decline. Location is still fantastic but hotel is getting shabby. Rooms or just okay but bathroom was tiny and no plugs bedside. Earth to westin..we have phones, iPads, watches etc… staff was good and attentive when we had to ask for more than two towels, extra pillows. The complimentary bikes are great.
