I recently stayed at the Pan Pacific in Vancouver on the 23rd floor. The hotel was really good, very clean, medium sized rooms and very comfortable bed. We are on the pacific club floor, with access to the pacific club. The club was excellent, definitely worth the additional upgrade. Hotel staff were really helpful and eager to assist. I travel a lot for work and would both recommend this hotel and stay again,
“I booked this hotel as it was near Vancouver General Hospital and this was listed as nearby. Parking is $15 per day which is common in this area, and far cheaper than anything at the hospital. It is a public lot however, so not gated and no access from the hotel itself. The emergency entrance to the hospital( with access to the main building) is a mere block away, easier walking than driving. Many restaurants nearby as well as a 24 hr Shoppers Drug Mart across the street.
The hotel itself is under renovations, having just installed a new elevator so the walls need painting etc. The lobby is nice. Check in was quick. We had a 2 queen bed room on the 3rd floor. Beds were very firm but the linens were luxurious. We did have a small balcony which I love for fresh air. The A/C was an older model however, with no temp control or auto shut off. Our TV had poor reception but not enough to worry about as we only watched a bit of news in am and pm.
There was a restaurant downstairs that had reasonable room service prices but we didn’t order any so can’t comment on quality but by the numerous trays left in the hallway, it was popular! I didn’t look into any other amenities.
All in all I would stay here if I need to be close to the hospital. we paid $99 and $119 a night which is great for downtown Vancouver, but if it was much more than that, I would probably stay elsewhere.”
Located on West Broadway adjacent to Vancouver General Hospital, within walking distance of Granville Island and just 4 blocks away from the Broadway City Hall SkyTrain station providing a direct link to the Vancouver Airport. All rooms have a private balcony, fridge, micro and a coffeemaker. Complimentary high-speed wireless.
I have had the pleasure of staying at the Sands 4 times, and it is one of my favorite places to stay. Love the location, the decor of the rooms are upscale, nice to have a balcony also robes & slippers a plus.
My last stay was March 2nd, for 2 nights on a business trip. The front desk staff were great, housekeepers very friendly and accommodating, excellent breakfasts and good value.
A safe area to walk on my own, I recommend the Sands for location,great property, lots of great restaurants, and the atmosphere.
Best Western Sands Hotel Vancouver
Located on Davie Street at Denman you are right across the street from English Bay and the Stanley Park Seawall. The area is loaded with Cafes, Restaurants and shopping.
The rooms are not the biggest,but they are well equipped and utilise the space well. Got a higher floor to minimise the noise,as you are close to a busy road. The staff were nice and helpful. If you have breakfast it can be be busy and there are sometimes not enough tables. The hotel is in an excellent downtown location.

Spent three nights here. Had a room at front and asked to be changed as it was noisy from traffic. In the morning moved me to another room at the rear. The following morning was awakened by a jack hammer at 7am that persisted. Not the hotels fault. Just frustrating when you are jet-lagged. Ordered room service eggs benedict one morning. Reasonable price. Location is good.
We stayed here for a couple of days before leaving on our cruise to Alaska. The hotel is in a pretty central location, close to downtown shopping, and tons of restaurants in walking distance. There’s a shopping district about 10 minutes walk from the hotel. It’s also pretty close to night clubs although we didn’t go to any while we were there. Some folks have said their rooms were was noisy, but our room 505 was pretty quiet. We were not on the front side of the hotel, which is the only place with a view. The front desk staff are very helpful and were able to recommend dining and sight-seeing options in the general area. Overall a very good hotel that we would definitely stay at again.
Ginger Sixty-Two one of Vancouver’s top cocktail lounge and Morrissey’s a classic Irish bar are both located in the Hotel.
I only stayed one night for a class in Vancouver. The kindness and courtesy of the front desk staff was amazing. They anticipated the needs of people they were helping in a way that one rarely finds anymore. The hotel is similar to European style, smaller rooms, etc but very clean and everything that one would need. I would certainly use it again. For tourists the location is ideal and much less expensive than many other hotels nearby.
