We spent 5 nights here.The front desk staff were excellent as were the room attendants. The hotel is very clean and the rooms well appointed.The down side to the fantastic location is the noise.I would recommend staying in a room in the back of the hotel.The service in the bar was not good on several visits.The bar staff are not...

Our first time at this particular hotel. We've stayed at other hotels in the Vancouver area, but this was the first in this part of town. Close to English Bay and Denman Street, which provided another view of a great city!

Great location. Near to everything we wanted to see. By chance, we also discovered it was close to gay shopping areas and clubs which was a plus for us. If I stayed again, I would definitely request a room on the back side of building and not near the elevators. You don't get the great view, but you also do... More

This hotel is certainly one we'd stay in again. Pros: *Location: ideal to walk to around the city. *Staff: very friendly and helpful *Rooms: clean, comfortable (they even allow dogs) *Currency exchange: the hotel would exchange up to $100 US dollars with no fees Cons: *Noise: we were on the 4th floor to the back of the hotel and we...

My husband and I spent 3 days at the Best Western Plus Sands over spring break. The location of the hotel was unbeatable! Just a minute walk to Stanley Park and English Bay Beach. We also had restaurants and a bike rental shop right next to us. The hotel itself was basic, but clean and had a very comfortable bed.... More

Great location, close to shops, eateries, supermarket and English Bay for walks. Also close to Stanley Park. Staff were all friendly, the beds were super comfy and the room clean and spacious. We also walked from there to Granville Island, long walk but achievable. Great views over the water from the bay at sunset.

We stayed at the Sands March 5&6, 2015. It was a trip with friends to experience Vancouver. The Sands was awesome. Great prices, excellent service, very good pub, best location in town. Everything within a block: beaches, running/biking path to Stanley park, super market, liquor store, excellent restaurants. Lots of parking in rear of hotel.

The hotel is clean and friendly and the location is fantastic. The location to shopping and restaurants is great. Also if you enjoy walking, running, jogging or the outdoors Stanley Park is only a bock and a half away and the walk around the bay to Coal Harbor is a truly wonderful experience.

the proximity to English Bay/Stanley park, to grocery stores (including an organic food market, a No Frills store and Safeway) and to public transportation make this a good hotel in which to stay. This hotel is very ordinary and a bit dated (wallpaper coming loose in places and few electrical outlets in the room). It is noisy: The front side... More

1 block form the seawall and Stanley Park. Older Hotel so the age shows, however the staff was great. Our room faced off the back, which is good since the front side was a busy bus stop. Incredibly quiet at night. If you opt out of maid service you get a $10 voucher in the restaurant. Breakfast was good, but... More
