After 7 days at sea, we were happy to have our feet back on stable ground with a nice clean room, fresh towels, and no unpleasant surprises. As always, Best Western came through with everything we could ask for and more. Eddy, the hotel manager, was professional, courteous and eager to help with all of our questions and needs. This...

We were booked into room 322, which faces Davie Street. There was street noise during the day; but it wasn't too bad at night. We could see the ocean through the buildings across the street. The beds were comfy enough. The staff brought our luggage up to our room prior to our actual check-in. Very sweet.

Great room, very close to English Bay and short walk to Stanley park. Room 404 was spacious, king bed, lounge, desk, large closet with two suitcase racks. Bathroom is old but decent size and functional except the shower which is terrible. The worst shower I have ever had anywhere in the world (and I've had some bad ones) The heat... More

We found a problem with the room Expedia had booked us into. You could here the music coming from the bar downstairs. The staff were most helpful finding us an alternative room on the other side of the hotel.

Our room was a little tired but spotlessly clean, to be fair we noticed that a program of refurbishment was underway. Unless you want to be right in the noisy heart of the city you should give this hotel serious consideration, it is close by Stanley Park and the sea but only a short bus ride from downtown (the trolley...

Very cosmopolitan hotel with restaurant in downtown Vancouver BC. Nice room, great front desk staff, and the extra convenience of a lively bar and restaurant on the property. Parking was a little tight but managable.

Hotel walls allowed significant sound transfer; so did the windows re traffic noise. There was insufficient parking. Lobby was not attractive - tired. Staff were casually dressed, not in BW clothing. Bed was OK; room was clean. No breakfast or restaurant

The Best Western Sands Plus is an older hotel which met our needs perfectly. It is located right across from English Bay beach and there are hundreds of eateries close by. The staff was very pleasant and polite. The beds were extremely comfortable. We enjoyed breakfast at their restaurant, $10 for a complete bacon and egg breakfast. I could barely... More

Pretty standard hotel with a superb location, right in the heart of the most interesting and scenic part of the city, on bus routes, bike rentals, near Stanley Park etc. The walls however are paper thin. We could hear conversations, phone calls, coughing and more from the adjoining room. Not a big deal as we were tired from walking and... More

Nice location with beach and food/drinks within easy walking distance. It is an older hotel that is kept up with nicely. Nice room with an older style window air conditioner that worked well. Not much of a view from here towards the mountains and Stanley Park due to the height of the other buildings in the area. Restaurant attached was... More

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.
