We had just obet 24 hours in Vancouver and were delighted to find this hotel. The location was perfect giving is easy access to the sights and a relaxing evening by the sea. The staff offered a friendly welcome and the room was clean, warm and comfortable. All in a great stay that has made us plan to visit again.

Three adults. Would return. Location is good with lots of restaurants around the corner on Denman Street. Parking is 15 per day, underground and no problem finding space. Stayed Wednesday, Thursday. Never tried the restaurant, but reasonable prices. Safeway and liquor store very close by. Tim Horton's across the street.

Considering all aspects, Best Western Plus Sands was the best hotel in our Canada trip. I've stayed in other BW hotels and you can really feel the "plus" in this one. We had a King Room with a Bay view on the top floor. Everything that we wanted! The room had a balcony and was very spacious. The amenities were... More

The property is a bit old and smallish but has a very helpful staff, a fitness center and is close to English bay. I would stay there again. The walls are very thin! The difference between a regular room and premium room is minimal but in dollars it is quite a bit more.

It was pretty good 2 nights for me here. Location of hotel is very good, near to some of the city attractions and good food. Beds were very comfortable. Expect the room and bathroom to be slightly small in size, which is acceptable for me and is also common in most downtown city hotels. Decent value for money stay.

Hello Thank You for your review. It sounds like you had a partial Ocean View from your room and it is very relaxing to watch the Ocean. The Ocean side does have some street noise on the weekends which is unfortunate. I am glad you found the rest of your stay to be so comfortable and the staff to be... More
