We stayed two lots of 3 nights at the Sands in September 2011 and were very happy. The staff at the front desk could not have been more helpful. When we left for one night in Seattle we were able to keep our bags at the hotel. Rooms and bathrooms were clean, air-conditioning, fridge, coffee machine all worked well. Only... More

We stayed one night, in October, between two flights. It is very easy to get to the hotel from the airport using public transportation (Skytrain and local bus). The room was OK, large enough, clean and with a comfortable bed. There was wifi in the room. The hotel lounge, Bayside Lounge, has an excellent view of the Bay. It's the... More

I was in Vancouver 2 years ago and stayed at this hotel because it was close to the sea wall and Stanley Park, and because of all the nearby restaurants, grocery stores etc. I came back again this year for the same reasons, and more importantly because of the price. They have made some upgrades to the rooms, primarily to... More

I stayed there for 3 nights in early October. I got the room #520 and it was a spacious room with a big balcony, a new flat TV which was nice, a nice-sized desk and an extraordinarily comfortable bed. The location of the hotel was perfect and it was also the reason I chose this hotel because I wanted to... More

He stayed at this property, for a weekend trip to Vancouver and most of all I have to say the location is fabulous!!! Right on English Bay and steps away from the beach and tons of great restaurants! It is also within walking distance to Stanley Park. If you want peace and quiet look elsewhere, while we enjoyed a waterfront... More

My stay at the Best Western Sands was an amazing one with my girlfriend. We had a car rental (parking fee per night is $15, cheap!), but there were a lot of places that were walking distance. We were across the street from English Bay, and we were pretty much right next to Stanley Park. Restaurants were also plentiful and... More

Although not close to the Skytrain stations, bus service is quite convenient for anyone staying at the Sands. Additionally, great restaurants, groceries, various services (pharmacies, bike rentals), Stanley Park, English Bay, False Creek are within walking distance. Service from hotel staff was great and some good coupons for Sands-owned eateries were provided at check-in time. I would recommend requesting a... More
