We travel up to Vancouver every New Year’s Eve and stay 3 or 4 days. We can’t imagine staying anywhere but the Sands. Great staff, super location, excellent lounge and restaurant, very comfortable and clean rooms…….all of these things add up to a trip we look forward to every year.

I wanted to take my husband on an over-nighter to Vancouver for his birthday this year. We stayed at the best western plus sands and it was awesome! I booked it online and under the “special requests” box I asked if they could have one of those happy birthday foil helium balloons in the room ready for us. I totally forgot I had asked and when we got there, it was floating above the bed and my husband was so happy! The bed was so comfortable and the pillows were amazing! Not the normal neck cranking, can’t sleep type, but actually very comfortable! I almost want to see where they get them from. Front desk staff was very polite and helpful as well. Would definitely recommend it to anyone.

The most unfortunate thing about staying here was that unbeknown to us we had picked the busiest weekend of the year. We had booked the hotel about 10 or 11 months in advance but we’re disappointed that the costs had risen. We didn’t pay for what was going on as we wanted to be the tourist and see what Vancouver had to offer. With roads closed we found it a bit difficult to get about. We stayed at the hotel for 4 nights and in prime position for English Beach and Stanley Park. You don’t necessary need a car as there is trolley buses/buses outside the hotel, no good when the roads are closed. Parking is ok. They have an open air one and one underneath easily accessible to get into the hotel.Disabled parking is underneath. Our room overlooked the car park so was quite cool. It was clean and had ample storage/hanging space. The room was clean if not a bit dated. We had clean towels each day.Bed was comfortable. There is also tea and coffee making facilities. Breakfast isn’t included in the rate so you can use the restaurant which is attached to the hotel. It has a pretty standard menu with prices fairly reasonable and well cooked. Some days you have to wait a bit. Otherwise not a bad stay, hotel just needs a bit of a makeover.

This is an older hotel in need of renovation and sound proofing. The staff does what it can to make up for these deficiencies, but they can only do so much. The location is super and is in a happening neighbour. I might stay here again, but would spend time looking for quieter accommodations in the area.

We stayed for 4 nights. Perfect location for walking to all areas. Right by the beach and close to Stanley Park but still walkable to downtown, Canada place, Gastown etc and ferry to Granville island just round the corner. Bus stops right outside. Great choice of breakfast and bar, restaurant good for dinner. Very comfortable room. Only criticism was room was very hot but aircon worked ok. Would definitely return

Can’t complain about the great price foe being right downtown. We had a great view of English Bay from our room. The rooms were clean. Only issue was Davie St can be quite noisy and the buses are noisy when they are lowering the bus right outside your window all night. Other than that I really enjoyed the hotel.

We stayed 5 nights at the hotel and the location was one of the best in the city! The service that the staff offered us was beyond anything we have ever imagined. It made our stay very memorable. We will never forget this hotel. Thank you best western.

So convenient for Festival of Lights fireworks. 3 minutes walk to bat for evenings entertainment. Great location for English Bay. Fast & helpful checkin, clean, spacious room on 5th floor, if a little dated. Convenient parking which is rare in Downtown hotels. Huge breakfast in Park Bar off reception which was reasonably priced. Would stay again.

The sands was a great place to stay. The bed and room was comfortable. It was clean. The staff were very helpful. The restaurant had good food. My son loved their nachos and calamari. The location was fantastic. We rented bikes from a place across the street and cycled through Stanley park. Granville island is a 20 minute walk away and English Bay Beach is 5 minutes away. The aquarium is also close. We had a beautiful view of the ocean from our room. Our room faced Davie street which can be busy at night. If you’re a light sleeper, a room facing away from the street would be better. We would stay at the sands again.

Hotel is quite old and could use some upgrading. First impression from looks is not great. Nevertheless it is clean, comfortable and everything works, restaurant and parking (extra charge) are on site and staff are friendly, helpful and professional. Location is excellent with frequent bus service to BC Place and downtown Vancouver. The frontage rooms overlook English Bay which is less than 5 minutes walk, and Stanley Park not much further. Overall excellent value for money

Such a great location for anyone to be able to access all the fine dining establishments. The staff are friendly and helpful. It’s close to shopping and to the water front. Take a quick walk down to the sky train. It’s also very close to many sports venues and the Queen Elizabeth theater.

Best Western Sands Hotel Vancouver Second Review
Excellent location almost on waterfront. Rooms adequate for a short stay. Bar diner has good breakfast. Staff helpful. Amenities short distance away say 10 to 15 minutes to shopping district and local bars nearby as are coffee shops
