Live Like a Billionaire – The Howard Hughes Suite

On March 14, 1972, Howard Hughes, the world's most famous and elusive billionaire, checked into the Westin Bayshore, Vancouver. The eccentric business magnate lived in the hotel's three-room, top-floor penthouse for 6 months, and was never seen outside of his room, despite the media's best attempts to photograph him. Would you like to have a taste of the lifestyle and experience a piece of Vancouver’s history? Enter our Howard Hughes Suite. Affording clean, inspiring elegance, this deluxe Tower suite has the most far-reaching, breathtaking harbor views available from the top floor – the views Howard Hughes looked at in his self-imposed isolation.
