We stayed in this hotel for 4 nights. It is right across the road from English Bay which has the most fantastic sunsets. There are all types of restaurants, bars and takeaways located in this area. We stayed in Room 427 which has a clear view of the sea but with an apartment block in the middle of the view.... More

The location is close to perfect with a bus stop right in front of the hotel, Stanley park, beach and many eateries nearby. You can rent a bicycle from the store right across the road, but walking to the other end of Denman Street you will find cheaper options. Everything was clean, the room was well sized. Staff at the... More

The hotel was nicely located downtown across from a park and the bay area. There were many little restaurants nearby and a Safeway grocery store. Rooms were well done and comfortable. We were on the street side and there was minimal noise from traffic, but the buses do stop right outside the hotel and you could hear those in the... More

We stayed in this hotel the night before an Alaska cruise. We were so happy with the location, despite requiring a cab ride to board the ship, because we got to see more of Vancouver. We had a partial view of the beach from our balcony and had no trouble with noise. For our first trip to Vancouver, we were... More

I have stayed in this area before but not at this hotel. I had read reviews stating the bus noise was too loud. Well we were on the side of the hotel where the buses traveled and didn't hear the noise! There are a lot of restaurants in the area but the two meals I had at the hotel were... More

Best Western Sands at the West End was perfect. Reception and house-keeping staff were excellent. I had a balcony room....essential in summer, to enjoy the sights and sounds of Davie Street and witness sunsets over English Bay. The only negative: I had breakfast in The Park restaurant at the Sands a few times. Service was exceptionally slow. Couples and foursomes... More

On a previous visit, I had a less than wonderful experience, and was contacted by the hotel manager. This time, the experience was excellent. The hotel location is wonderful - just a block from the beach and within walking distance of many, many restaurants. I had a room on the 5th floor with a balcony, facing the ocean. The room... More

We arrived at the BW Sands tired and hungry. We hoped our room would be ready but fully expected it not to be as we were quite early. The young man at the desk, Andy, greeted us with a smile and told us it would be about another hour, but the hotel restaurant was open and had a lunch special.... More

Hotel is a little old fashioned and very dark brown interior decor but staff and location are great right opposite English Bay and the Sea Wall. We had a room with balcony and a sea view which would have been better if there wasn't a great big tower block in front of the view. However nice to see the sun... More

Great location and good value. Good rate on breakfast. Nice staff. Very good rooms. Recommend this hotel especially if you have a pet with you. We have stayed there many times. The location is across from English Bay and right at Denman so you can walk to restaurants, the beach, the park, etc
