We were looking for an affordable place in a good location and this hotel fit the bill. We stayed for two nights after our cruise. It was perfect as it was in walking distance of the laughing statues, the beach, and the hop on hop off bus. I prefer a place where there is breakfast, but we couldn't afford one... More

Room was clean and whilst tight we were able to fit 5 of us ok with the sofa bed and two queen beds. The Bathroom was very small though and quite dated. View from room was uninspiring over a back lane and demolished building. Bus transport was good with the stop directly outside hotel. Staff were friendly and helpful.

I travelled with my 75 year old dad and we enjoyed the hotel and the location and the view. Bathroom was a little tight but bed was awesome. Staff were friendly and accommodating. Great restaurants around and close by.

Great location, near many good restaurants on Davies and other directions. Staff are great. In 2012 the hotel was undergoing reno's and we were very happy with our stay. In 2014 the hotel was what we expected and never wrote a review. Now in 2016 we stayed on the 4th floor and the rooms that were renovated 3 and 4... More

This hotel is steps away from beautiful English Bay. This is an acceptable hotel. It's clean. The staff are helpful. We could hear a baby crying several times through the night as well as someone coughing a lot. So our sleep was interrupted.....while mid week prices are good, the weekend rate jumped considerably. Restaurant is in the hot and Starbucks... More

We travel up to Vancouver every New Year's Eve and stay 3 or 4 days. We can't imagine staying anywhere but the Sands. Great staff, super location, excellent lounge and restaurant, very comfortable and clean rooms.......all of these things add up to a trip we look forward to every year.

We are enjoying every time we stayed with Best Western. The staffs always friendly and helpful. Very clean inside the room and got a good coffee and TV. Most of Best Western are pet friendly when we need to travel with my dog a lot.

Staying in West End

Neighborhood Profile
West End
A hodgepodge of landscapes, the West End combines verdant gardens and blocky modern architecture, with Victorian bits and Edwardian bobs in between. It is a paradise for takeout food, take-away coffee, and perhaps incongruously, some of Vancouver's most languid lines of beachfront. English Bay and Sunset Beach invite swimmers, strollers, and picnic-lovers to take in dusk settling over the water, or to jog along with the sunrise, offering breathtaking views at any time of day. The West End merges together so many looks and flavors probably because it functions a hub: its the leafy pit-stop between nightlife and entertainment venues along Davie Street, and the shopping paradise that is Robson Street, offering visitors beautiful parkland to rest on, and quick, easy food to re-fuel with in between ventures.
