This hotel is right at English Bay with great bus access to downtown and for connections to anywhere in Greater Vancouver. Hotel is clean and comfortable. Staff is great! Restaurants in the English Bay area are superb. No in-room safe but there are safety boxes for rent at the front counter

a great location a short distance from English Beach and Stanley Park. The hotel interior was a little tired, however it was spotlessly clean and everything worked. All the staff were extremely polite & helpful.

We always stay at the Sands on our visits to Vancouver! You can't beat the location... located directly across from English Bay in the West End. The hotel restaurant is great as well as so many awesome restaurants along Denman St. We love it here and recommend it to our friends and family.

Hey, I'm flying to Vancouver next month. My wife and I are in our 50s. We are not renting a car so we want to be in a hotel where we can walk to most of the major sites. I've read about the Sands Best Western. It says the rooms have really nice views of the English Bay. What is... More

I really like this hotel. The rooms are all updated and cozy. I love the decore and all the extra touches and things they give you in the room to use. When we walked in the room it smelled so good on the inside. The staff here is really nice. The only reason I gave a four is because the... More

When we arrived, which we marked on the reservation we were unsure of arrival ( no gps... We thought we might just get lost.) they told us they had no rooms available,... More

All in all, I have no complaints about the Sands -- the service was great, my room was clean and the location is excellent. This is a typical older Best Western property. It's obviously been updated over the years, but there's some evidence that this is an older building from the elevators to the in-room bathrooms (older tile and some... More

Fantastic hotel. Staff are very informative, The Bayside Lounge is fantastic with great food and an ever better view, and the rooms are great value. Lots of menu choices and walking distance to anything you need to do. A+

When we can my husband and I like to get away to Van for a weekend and we always stay at the Sands. The staff are friendly with great pubs and restaurants located within the hotel and many other coffee shops and restaurants near by. The hotel is clean and we've never had a problem here. The location is amazing... More

Had a great week at the Best Western Plus on Davie street. Nice central location to the sites. Great little restaurant/bar. Good clean accommodation at a great price. Friendly and informative staff for transportation and sites to see.
