A Family Getaway at The Westin Grand Vancouver

Update: The Westing Grand is now the Hilton Vancouver Downtown.

I love long weekends. They are always a great excuse to get away and switch things up.

This last long weekend, my family and I headed to Vancouver, BC. On this getaway we stayed at The Westin Grand Vancouver on Robson St.

About the Hotel

The Westin Grand is recently renovated. It is centrally located and is an all-suite hotel.

The hotel has a saltwater outdoor heated pool and whirlpool and a WestinWORKOUT® Fitness Studio open 24hrs a day.

The Westin Grand is located next to the beautiful Vancouver Public Library. It is also near Roger’s Arena, BC Place, Yaletown and steps away from great shopping on Robson street.

The location of this hotel is tough to beat. We parked our car when we arrived and did not need it until we ventured out to the Capilano Suspension Bridge. We walked to restaurants and shopping during our entire stay.

Our Room

We stayed in a 1 bedroom suite during our stay. Our suite was well appointed and had one king bed and a pullout queen sofa bed for the kids in the living room.

The first thing I noticed when stepping into my room was how modern and tastefully decorated it was.

Rooms have floor to ceiling windows which allow a lot of light in (even on rainy days). They have extremely comfortable beds and pillows and lovely toiletries (I’m a sucker for nice hotel shampoo and soap).

The Westin Grand Vancouver review

I really enjoyed having extra space in this room, especially in the evening when the kids were watching their own movie in the living room and my husband and I were relaxing in the bedroom.


The Westin Grand has one restaurant located on the lower floor. Hendricks serves tasty breakfasts, lunch and dinners.

The hotel offers 24hr room service.

Some hotel packages include a complimentary breakfast for two.


My family had a fabulous stay at The Westin Grand Vancouver. We liked the boutique feel of the lobby and our large 1 bedroom suite.

The staff at the Westin Grand were friendly and helpful. The kids loved receiving colouring sheets at check-in and we appreciated the activity suggestions from the valet.

The best part of the hotel for us was the rooftop pool. My kids swam every day during our 3-day stay. The temperature of the pool was just right, there were plenty of towels available in the fitness centre and lounge chairs to sit on if not swimming. The whirlpool was also a great feature and a great place to relax in after a day of walking around downtown Vancouver.

Disclosure: The Westin Grand offered my family special perks during our stay. All thoughts and opinions are always my own.



  1. I love that the pool is open 24 hours! We always seem to get back too late to enjoy them! Thank you!

  2. Rooftop pools are so cool! It looks like SUCH a fun place for a family getaway! My kids would love it> 🙂

  3. hey I was at that first location you posted. I believe there was a Timmies right there? I loved it there. So beautiful and so much to do! would love to go back

  4. Sometimes just getting away for a night in a hotel room is such a good idea to have some down time and refresh for us.

  5. My nephew’s middle name is Westin, and I’m fairly certain it was because of the hotels. This looks like the perfect place to stay when visiting Vancouver! I love being right in the middle of the fun.

  6. The Westin Grand really has a lot to offer. I’ve never seen a saltwater outdoor pool before. That sounds like fun! The bed looks SO comfortable too.

  7. It looks like you had a great view. I prefer a suite like this when we travel. Not only is everyone together but you can relax in the room and save money by preparing simple foods in there too.

  8. It sounds like a beautiful hotel! We’ve never travelled to Canada, but would love to. Our neighbors are from Canada and talk about it all time!
