Sandman Suites On Davie Vancouver

The hotel is just like every high rise hotel on the planet. The best thing about it is the great neighborhood in the heart of the West End. Close to the water, plenty of restaurants, bars, and coffee shops nearby.

We had booked a queen bed apartment which we upgraded to a King bed apartment with a pullout for an extra $30 per night- we were booked in for four nights- . I wasn’t that impressed as I didn’t find it that clean. Dirty marks on the fridge, floor, dirty paintwork and wall paper old and stained. I could actually cope with all that until I spent a night trying to sleep on the pullout. The mattress was so thin I could feel the metal bars through it. I tried everything and ended up trying to sleep on the cushions. Needless to say I had very little sleep. Well, without sleep and very grumpy next day it was unfortunate for the Duty Manager to be in the lift with me. I was very polite but told him how disgusted I was with the whole booking. He asked me to leave it with him and he would see what he could do.
On checking back with him (Roberto) later, found he had upgraded us to a suite on the 23rd floor. What a change! Clean, parquetry flooring and a decent mattress on the couch. He also advised me that they would not charge me the upgrade fee for the first night of the stay.
I was so impressed with this level of service and I highly commend Roberto for his handling of the issue.
It made our stay so much more pleasant and certainly put a more positive slant on our stay at The Sandman suites. It is situated in Davie Street, surrounded by lots of eating places and bars. Jodie’s bar next door had fairly good food and apply hour every afternoon between 3-6pm. It was only a $10 taxi ride to Canada place and the Wharves and around $40 to the airport. It was good to have an apartment where we could prepare our own breakfasts and it wasn’t until we were leaving that I discovered a washer/dryer in the cupboard that I could have used.
I hope that the Sandman continues to upgrade its suites- if so I would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel. And again, I would like to commend the Duty Manager Roberto on his dealing with our issues.

My first time at the Sandman Suites. They are in a great spot for the West End. Lots of close restaurants and bars.

The rooms are dated and need a facelift but seem comfy. We had a nice city view on the 16th floor in a Queen suite. The Living area was small but adequate. The Bedroom was small and had little room for getting around the bed. Overall its not bad for the location which is central to the West End but a bit pricy for the condition of the room. Parking was available in a garage below the hotel for an additional price. The restaurant is currently closed for remodeling as well.

Last word… For the price its not a bad property compared with the rest of Vancouver, but you get what you pay for.

Room was good, clean, well furnished. Nice to stay in a suite. Kitchen was adequate. Older suite, but appeared well maintained. Close to BC Place, Granville island, lots of good eating establishments, with a wide variety of menus all close by. Supplied an umbrella upon request. Front desk was very courteous. Couch could have been more comfortable. No salt and pepper in rooms. Ask for it at the front desk at check-in. Would stay again.

This is a disappointing hotel. 1 The room in which I stayed 1502 was in need of some TLC. The bathroom door was water damaged and the bath chipped. There were blond hairs on top of the fridge.
I had booked a Queen Suite but instead was given a Twin suite, with no reason. The -on-site restaurant was closed. There was no mention of this on my reservation form.
I would not like to bring young children to this hotel. This is not the fault of the hotel but some the clientele.
The bed, however, although not what was ordered, was very comfortable

We stayed in a King Ocean View suite 2108 and were pleased with the size and the amenities. the hotel is a bit tired looking and the furniture could do with changing – tables, chairs, cabinets were all badly scratched, but the bed was very comfy and the duvet was great. TV is rubbish. Front desk staff very helpful and its a very gay friendly hotel – rainbows everywhere!

Great location – within walking / a cab / transit away from many interesting things to do downtown Vancouver. Rooms were alright, some missed spots with the vacuum. The wireless internet was horrible – so plan ahead of time and look at schedules before getting down there, unless you are using your phone to help navigate.

Stayed here the night before my friend’s wedding where I was in the bridal party. The accommodations were decent. We booked a suite with a kitchenette, however noticed things such as sugar for the coffee was lacking. There were no toiletries and we had to call reception throughout the evening for various things that hotel suites are typical to have.

We had confirmed ahead of time for reception to book two taxis to take us to the wedding venue. But when we arrived downstairs to hopefully leave, we find out no taxis were ever called. Additionally, front desk was very unhelpful and did not call any taxis for us when we noticed the problem. Instead we received sass.

The bride had to track down one taxi for herself, and I and another bridesmaid were left to find a taxi for ourselves. As there was construction on Davie Street at the time, few taxis actually passed by. I had to ask the hostess at the Moxies in the hotel to call a taxi for us and they were kind enough to do so. Luckily, with help from Moxies and a few kind guests we just made it in time for all of us to make it down the aisle.

Good location with many eating places around. There are supermarkets and a drugstore nearby. The suites come with kitchen facilities which you can cook for the family. Staff was friendly. As we stayed for 10 days, they were nice to accord us comp half day use. Will definitely return in the future

I just wake up this morning and take a shower and when I go to get my clothed from my bag she just walk in and then apologizes… then when I asked why she just walked she argued with me… says she didn’t walk in… but her argument makes no sense!? So asked her if she will tell the front desk what happened and she flat out said NO….

The rooms here are freezing. My heat is still full blast with nothing really. Only in room with noisy heater it works.

We stay here on and off, not all the time, but a handful of times a year, but the staff remember us by name, they remember what floors we like to stay on, and even remember the rooms we like. They are always so helpful, and friendly, personable and accommodating. I truly have never experienced better staff than those here. The rooms are nice, clean, spacious, and did I mention how great the staff are?
I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Sandman on Davie, I typically stay on Granville but after my time here I will now book all my future stays here at Davie St. Great staff, great rooms and great location!

We live in Vancouver’s West End, which is a popular spot with tourists. However, most residents don’t have room for guests, so we have to know which hotels to recommend when out of towners come for a visit. We have had multiple guests stay at this hotel, and they have been very satisfied. The service is good, the views of English Bay are magnificent, and you have a little apartment (kitchenette, bedroom, living room) at your disposal.

It may be a good idea to have a working kitchen if you are staying for a while but when it takes up so much space and reduces the bedroom and bathroom to tiny spaces then it simply doesn’t work.
This is an old building and the years have taken their toll – as to be expected – so don’t expect everything to be shiny. It does, however, have a great location near shops and eateries and within easy strolling distance to the seafront.

We stayed here for 5 nights. Check in was easy, we caught a cab from the airport and it took us right to the door for just under $30. The staff were friendly and the place was quite modern.

We were on level 24. The room was fresh, and it had everything. There was a full size fridge, microwave, oven and stove, kettle, coffee machine, washing machine and clothes dryer which came in very handy.

There were beautiful views from the balcony towards the city, but not all the rooms face that way. There was a TV in the lounge room and the bedroom.

The only two bad things were because it’s in the city, you constantly hear sirens, even with the window and sliding door to the balcony shut. The second was the bathroom, it was very cramped inside but still had everything you’d need.

It’s walking distance to lots of places to get food, coffee, groceries, pretty much everything.

A small tip would be if you don’t have a hire car, google “car2go”. We saw them around everywhere and ended up using them to drive around a couple of times. Registering for it isn’t easy, but when you get sick of walking, or want to travel somewhere further out, it’s the way to go.

I would definitely stay at this hotel again.

We had 2 nights here, the main entrance needs a makeover as quite dated and dark, however the front desk service was very good, friendly helpful staff. We had our suits on the 23rd floor which gave us excellent views over Vancouver. The suits were well kept, clean and the facilities were great. Comfy bed, air conditioning, kitchen including fridge and dishwasher plus washing machine ensure that the suits are a good base for a trip to Vancouver. The are within easy walking access to the centre of the city,waterfront Granville island. There is also onsite secure parking at an additional cost.

The Hotel is certainly in the downtown part of Vancouver, and Davie Street is one of two streets in that part for partying ’til all hours. Be prepared for that! The view of the city from the balcony of our room was impressive and spectacular at night. There was a washer/dryer machine in a closet that I was going to use, but it was moldy smelling. It was too complicated to figure out, and one load could take 4 hours–no thank you. The bedroom was too small for getting around in. The kitchen was convenient with dishes and utensils.

Great view of the waterfront and the city from the 19th floor. Great location. Nice hotel with a kitchen. Room was very cleanness and had been updated. Very trendy neighbourhood. Staff was very friendly. I would stay here again.

We stayed here as part of a tour to Canadian Rockies , the suites were very spacious and everything in them you need , we were 2 single girls and one had the bed and other on put you up bed which was really comfy , love the idea that the lift only works with your door key which is very safe , pool area great with a heater when you get out of the pool (sun wasn’t there then so you needed heater ) then sun came out and was great , the only downfall was it was a gay/lesbein area ( not that that bothers me in slightest ) but wasn’t anyway really close to hotel to go for a drink , the bar attached to hotel were really friendly and chatty.

We stayed here on Aug 6 for one night for a cruise the next day. If we ever get back to Vancouver again we would stay here. A tall building, check in was quick and easy and staff are friendly. They upgraded us to the penthouse floor to a jr suite complete with a jet-tub (didn’t use but looks great) and full kitchen. The city view from our balcony was nice especially at night. The king bed was very comfortable. Two issues:
1) The (24″?) mounted TV was angled just right if watching from the tub but not so much from the bed. It seemed to be unmaneuverable.
2) The AC was good but the long drapes directly above the unit blocked the airflow. We used our two complimentary bathrobes to keep the vents open.
Other than that our stay was great. The hotel is close to shopping and dining. We headed west on Davie st. toward the beach with a stop at Hamburger Mary’s Diner. After a nice meal we walked mostly downhill to English Bay beach.What a nice view. When there, checkout the larger than life Statues/ sculptures titled Amazing Laughter which will at least make you smile. After a good nights sleep, we had breakfast at Mary’s again then back to the Sandman for easy checkout. A cab out front took us to the pier. Vancouver is a beautiful city and the Sandman on Davie St is a great home base.
