Westin Hotel Wall Center Vancouver Airport Review

Book the Westin Hotel Wall Center Vancouver Airport here.

I booked this hotel as a quick overnight last week. Starwood has a large presence in Vancouver. The Westin Wall Center is just 2 years old and close to the airport so I went for a Cash&Points rate (Category 5).

I called ahead to find out the hours of the complimentary shuttle. I took 5 minutes to have someone pick up on my call.

The shuttle appeared on time at the Vancouver Airport hotel shuttle bus station. Btw the outdoor bus station has incredibly fast wifi – seems YVR has really invested in free Wifi.

It's just a 5 minute drive away, near the Bridgeport Skytrain station.

The hotel is pretty new and make a fresh, polished impression.

Check-In

Check-In was friendly but the agent kept giving me all non-suite options not even considering a suite upgrade option. I did not press it and got a room in the 14th floor giving me a bit of a view onto landing planes.


The rooms

The rooms is modern with a rather luxurious bathroom. They certainly have some of the best looking and spacious bathrooms in and airport hotel I have been. The room was large enough and gave me a view over the Marina. It also overlooks the airport road which is quite noisy.

I liked the mattress a lot and slept really well. It's soft but hard enough to not give me back pain.

Connectivity

2Mbit for Uploads and Downloads is what you get on a DSL line at home and also at the Westin Vancouver. However around 7 PM the Internet stopped working and wasn't fixed until me departure early morning the next day.

The lounge

All I have are some pictures from the lounge before it started operations. I can't really say anything about food offerings.

Overall

This is a good airport hotel. It's very new and has a lounge. But still it's a North American Westin at heart and things are certainly not luxurious here. The nearby Skytrain station make it easy to get to downtown Vancouver without a car.
