“Very nice hotel but quite small.”
Reviewed March 22, 2014

This hotel was perfect for what I was looking for. It was in a good location so that many places were in walking distance. The people working were always nice and gave suggestions when we needed them. The elevators we a bit scary though.

We have just stayed 3nights here..fantastic! The location is brilliant at English Bay in west end. Denman St has tonnes of restaurants and cafés. Stanley Park and The sea wall is just across the road, Safeway and small shops so close and the bus stop across the road. We walked everywhere from here. Staff are fantastic, rooms really well equipped, beds super comfy, nice spacious room and under $90 a night unbelievable.
We had a room on 4th floor , could see the water...lovely! Try to get a room on street side for outlook.Yes you can hear a bit of street noise but okay.
We had a drink and meal in the park downstairs which was very nice too.
Best value stay in our month trip in Canada!

Best location, excellent staff, if you have a room on the street; be prepared for street noise at all hours of the night. You are downtown, and the bus stops are in front of the building. There were a few repairs that had to be made - A/C cover falls off and hinge to fridge door broke off. Saying that, staff, exercise room, bar/restaurant.... were all excellent.

Thank you for your review. We appreciate your kind words. It is true that the rooms away from the street our quieter. Thank you as well for noting the items that needed to be repaired. We do try and do preventive maintenance to our rooms but unfortunately we did not discover those. Maintenance has already repaired the items. We hope to see you on your next trip to Vancouver.

My wife and I spent 5 nights recently and Manager Dallas and his Team were nothing but welcoming and accommodating. Location is great for walking just about anywhere downtown. The onsite Food and Beverage were a great mix, we especially enjoyed The Park Pub, good food and plenty of beer on tap! Although an older building, they have certainly been investing to modernize where they can, TV's and technology for instance. The Sands is a great price point in the very competitive downtown hotel sector, and well worth visiting on your next trip!

The hotel is within walking distance to Stanley Park and English Bay,the room was very clean and a good value for your money. The staff were very friendly,I am from Vancouver and would often go there when they had a steak house as the restraunt. They now have a very nice Bar with a big screen to watch all the sports. Would recomend this place to all my friends. Evelyn
