Westin Bayshore Pool Pass Giveaway

The Westin Bayshore is one of Vancouver’s most iconic hotels. Jutting out from the downtown core, adjacent to Stanley Park and the Sea Wall, it offers 511 newly decorated (dog friendly) guest rooms fitness facilities, Vida Spa, dining, and plenty of local history.

Westin Bayshore Vancouver

I’ve been to the Westin before for events like the Juno Awards and the annual YWCA Women of Distinction Awards but there’s much more to this urban resort than meeting space (although there is 71,337 square feet of it). You can escape the city while still being right in the thick of it. Park and mountain views, water features, greenery, and more.

The hotel has a guest entrance right off the sea wall, a lounge with free WIFI, shops, a Starbucks, an indoor pool and an outdoor pool — the outdoor pool recently being named a “Top 10 Hotel Pool” by the Vancouver Sun.
