We spent 3 nights at the Best Western PLUS Sands hotel and it was great. I love the location, so close to Stanley Park where we walked every morning and with plenty of restaurants and shops close by. Our room had a nice view of English Bay and we saw some lovely sunsets. The room was a reasonable size with... More

Great location right on English Bay/Stanley Park, corner of Denman & Davie. Easy walking distance to all locations in downtown Vancouver. Bayside Lounge is a great place for a drink or two, schedule your time to watch the sunset over English Bay. Limited parking area, arrive early. Good rate for parking, $13 a night. Request a room on the even... More

The staff was very pleasant and helpful. I would definitely recommend this hotel. The other nice thing about it was the location ... it was near the beach area, park and restaurants so that just about anything was within walking distance.

First the negative! We stayed one night pre cruise and found our room very small (being next to the lift) with very loud air conditioning which we needed to turn off to sleep overnight. We were on the back of the hotel which is definitely the quieter side but with no view to speak of. So as we were coming... More

We stayed here for 3 nights. The location is very good. The rooms are clean, nice white soft towels, lovely clean fresh bedding every day. What more do you want for a city hotel... On the down side it is an old hotel very noisy no double glazing on a very busy main road because it is a city hotel... More

Stayed two nights with my ten year old. Booked one queen bed, but didn't expect the room to be so small. Couldn't walk around bed to get the bathroom without hitting furniture, but we were barely in the room so we made it work. Room was clean, hotel staff helpful, and location was perfect right across from the beach and... More

When we first arrived we were disappointed as this hotel is badly in need of modernisation. Best Western really should deal with this because this is a gem of a hotel in a perfect location, with the most helpful and genuinely friendly staff. My daughter and I could not have asked for better help in working out the bus routes... More
