Location location location! Upcoming trip to Vancouver? Be sure to stay in the heart of downtown Vancouver to get the very best from your stay, my suggestion? The Westin Grand on Robson and Hornby! It truly is the perfect location being steps to the shops on Robson, the entertainment district on Granville, my favorite parts of downtown; Gastown and Yaletown and so much more! With views of the mountains, the city, and the harbour, you can’t go wrong. They are a 4 and a half star hotel with a massive heated outdoor pool and hot tub, a 24 hour fitness studio, steam room, sauna, conference rooms, valet and self-parking and even an amazing restaurant and lounge! Another bonus is that they are pet-friendly which is hard to find these days, they will love their stay in their Heavenly® dog bed plus they can enjoy some special treats! How sweet! And don’t forget to collect your rewards with Marriott Rewards®, The Ritz-Carlton Rewards®, and Starwood Preferred Guest® (SPG®) to earn free nights!
Hendricks Resto-Lounge is in the main lobby area and is the perfect place to grab an old school cocktail, try some delicious modern cuisine, or a must try is their full breakfast buffet that has a omelette station, hot station, tons of baked goods, cereal, fruit, yogurt and more! I went for the full buffet and indulged in an amazing smoked salmon lox, a piece of banana bread french toast and a latte, what a way to start the day! They even have live music Thursdays to Saturdays as well as 24 hour room service.
Their suites are stunning, we loved our view, not to mention it was spacious and comfortable. We found ourselves on the top floor overlooking the city and a fun view of Rogers Arena all lit up. The bed was massive and sooo comfy with the comforter, they even had a little bottle of essential oil on the bedside table to get the soothing scent of lavender before bed, such a nice touch! The bathroom was nice, with a massive rainforest style shower, my fav! The bar was fully equipped and ready for us to tackle it, plus all the other extra’s like free Dasani water, complimentary use of their umbrellas in the rainy city, housecoats, bathroom essentials, free wifi, complimentary daily newspapers and infused water in the main and ground floors.
They are also great for events whether it’s a wedding or business event. You could host 100 people in their 4,000 sqft space. They provide a complimentary reservation link so you can even manage your event and invite list. It’s even a perfect spot to get married, you could host your cocktail reception on the outdoor terrace with a beautiful view of the city.
The staff were also worth mentioning. From the ground level concierge and valet parking fellas, to the check-in counter, to our breakfast server that went above and beyond enough to have us write a thank you letter. It was a lovely experience. Check in at 3, check out at noon, no rush, just relax, and enjoy your stay knowing that you are in good hands at the Westin Grand. Be sure to check out their website for some amazing deals, not to mention they offer discounts for seniors, corporate, government and military.
