We were on an overnight trip to Vancouver, because it is fun. I wanted to try something in the city, but not "IN" the city. This hotel was perfect. A few yards from a sand beach and 3 blocks from Stanley Park. We overlooked the street and had an interesting view of English Bay. Marinas, big ships, and seabirds. The... More

Hello Thank You for the review of the Best Western Plus Sands. I am glad you enjoyed being just outside of the downtown core but still close to everything. It is a great location being steps from the beach and a short walk to Stanley Park. It looks like you took advantage of the Bayside Lounge drink specials and view... More

Return trip was just as good as the first. Our first visit was a few years ago, and there had been some construction happening at the time. Seems to have resulted in some nice renovations - the lobby and rooms were sleeker than I remembered. The location, service, cleanliness and value can't be beat. Will continue to be my mainstay...

We recently stayed at the Sands for a hockey game. The price was right, the room comfortable and the staff were friendly. Parking is also reasonable and if you want to be near English bay and Stanley park the location is great!. The only negative is that it is tired looking and while advertised as a downtown hotel, it really... More

Stayed here for one night while I was in town for a hockey game. I paid via airmiles, so they price was right, and location was great! Parking is cheap, and somewhat secure. Would have let the Front Desk attendant know how nice my stay was but they never asked! Will definitely be back for future stays.

We stayed 1 night early January 2015. The location was excellent for downtown and Stanley Park - easy walking... didn't need a vehicle! The Hotel was economical, clean and staff was helpful and friendly.

Stayed at the Sands Hotel every January 1 for 30 years. Every year the staff, from front desk to housekeeping, has been above par and ensured our stay was enjoyable. All rooms have stayed up-to-date over our many years staying at the hotel, although the exterior has not changed all that much. It's a West End landmark. The value for... More

We liked the hotel location close to Stanley park and many restaurants. The room was clean and staff was great. The only issue was a soul train rocking party that started 11pm and did not end until wee in the morning. We do understand that they need to have this sort of party, but I believe they could have had... More

I have stayed at other Best Western properties in Vancouver, but had not stayed here before. The staff was exceptional and the on-site lounge/bar/restaurant is super! They have dancing on the weekend as well! It was very clean and although the decor could use a re-fresh, overall I would stay here again for sure. It is in a great location... More
