Vancouver getaway

For the most part, the hotel was good, just dated somewhat. The room was a little noisy as a bus stop was immediately outside my window on the first floor and I could easily hear the TV and voices in the next room.. The girl at checkout was less than friendly, and would not give me a late checkout at 2:00. I had a conference at another hotel beginning at 5;00 pm and could not register until then.

close to english bay, good view

Good view from the front windows, however street below noisy. Windows had condensation, could be upgraded to block out noise etc. House keeping friendly. Resonable price, resonable stay. Location spot on.

Nice and Near the Park

The best thing about this hotel is the location - right across the street from Stanley Park and a short walk from lots of West End restaurants. The room was clean and comfortable (although fairly cramped, with two queen beds). The restaurant served mediocre food at higher than average prices. But the biggest down-side was the noisy neighbors. The rooms are not sound-proof at all and there were people yelling in the hallways in the middle of the night during both nights of our stay.

Don’t judge this by the price. This hotel is better than others charging twice as much. Very clean and service was great. Has its own restaurant; food selection was not too wide, but the two dinners we tried there were really good. Plus it’s right in downtown. Walking distance to everything.

Perfectly located downtown hotel

The Best Western Sands Hotel was perfectly located on Davie Street. Around the corner from the hotel is Denman and nearby Robson Streets where there are 200+ restaurants and local eats that are awesome.

Best Western - Our Usual Choice

Whenever we stay in hotels on our travels, we choose Best Western - for their value and location choice. We were disappointed this time. Though the Sands has updated features such as granite counter tops, the bathroom was very small with no fan. The beds in one of the rooms we had were uncomfortable, the breakfast was not included and there wasn't a pool or hot tub (both unusual for a 'Plus' level). The staff was very friendly, the hotel was clean, there was ample parking (for a fee which one would expect in downtown Vancouver).
