The luxurious JW Marriott Parq Vancouver is located in Yaletown next to BC Place Stadium, just off the banks of False Creek.
This was our second stay in the beautiful city of Vancouver. We were right next to Canada Place and Stanley Park at the Vancouver Marriott Pinnacle Downtown Hotel the first time.
This time, the T.rex exhibit at Science World was of great interest to the kids, and we wanted to explore the southeast part of the city.

Reception and registration
Via the Marriott Bonvoy mobile app chat, I had alerted the hotel that we would be arriving early (11:00 am). So when we arrived, our room was already ready.
The registration was done efficiently and quickly. The attendant explained the various hotel options in a friendly yet very professional manner. We would never have guessed if she hadn’t told us she was new.
The reception is vast and sumptuous, in contemporary shades of brown and gold. She also shared a space with the concierge, who gave us several good tips for visiting the city.
We were on the 15th floor, overlooking False Creek and Science World. It was beautiful. Unfortunately, a film on the window prevented a good view. You can see the grain in the photo below.
The room had two queen-sized beds, a work desk, two armchairs and a small table.
A desk with two drawers also included a refrigerator and a coffee maker for illy coffees.
The room furnishings were modern and visually beautiful but uncomfortable. To compensate, the soft beds were simply divine.
Then, to complete the room, a closet contained two robes and two pairs of slippers.
The bathroom was large, with the shower and toilet separated by a partition and a door. This is convenient, especially for a family of 4 that needs the bathroom simultaneously for different reasons.
One restaurant is located directly in the JW Marriott Parq Vancouver hotel: The Honey Salt. It is a casual type of restaurant with an emphasis on local products.
Therefore, a multitude of restaurants are accessible inside:
- BC Kitchen (sports bar)
- Center Bar (bar)
- 24/7 Easts (for a quick bite)
- Lotus Whiskey & Tea Lounge (signature cocktails and sophisticated teas)
- The Noodle Bar (Asian restaurant)
- The Victor (steakhouse)
- D/6 Lounge (Bar with a distinguished atmosphere)
Spa, Aqua Lounge and gym
On the 17th floor, there is the fitness room and the Aqua Lounge.
The fitness room has a multitude of treadmills and different machines to work every muscle in your body.
A little further on is a terrace with several chairs, umbrellas and patio tables.
A small whirlpool is at the end of the terrace. The size is disappointing, especially for a hotel of this category and size, as there is no pool.
The Spa by JW is on the same floor and offers massage and skin care treatments.
Located on the 4th floor, the lounge is huge. In addition, the staff was very attentive throughout our stay.
The lounge is open all day to Platinum members and above. Beverages, coffee, tea, snacks and yogurt are available at all times. Then, breakfast is offered in the morning, and entrees are available at supper time.
Everything was delicious and varied. The menu was different on our two days.
A member of my family who is gluten intolerant was over the moon. There were gluten-free options!
During breakfast, a toaster was designated primarily for the gluten-free bakery. This is a rare occurrence and it was highly appreciated.
Alcohol is also offered, and the cost will be added to your room bill.
My impression of the JW Marriott Parq Vancouver
The distinguished customer service, the services offered, the lounge, and the soft beds were perfect. This hotel is considered luxurious so expect a price that reflects that luxury.
However, I could lower the bill by applying the best price guarantee. This saved me $348! See the article below to show how I did it.
