“Great location, good value”
Reviewed May 24, 2013 via mobile

This is a reasonably priced hotel with modern clean spacious rooms and is well placed in Downtown Vancouver for relatively easy access to all the key areas. We contemplated a slightly plusher venue however these came with a high price tag and with so much to see and do, the Sandman Downtown represented better all round value. Good coffee in the room was also a plus and some very accommodating reception staff who enabled our access to our room at a much earlier time than scheduled made our stay much easier. A good option.

This hotel is in a good location, great for Gastown and the Rogers Arena. The service is great, what you expect from Sandman but we couldn't help but be disappointed by the room. We were in 802, a huge corner room but that is where the good points end. The door looked like it wasn't shut properly, it was, it just made you a bit nervous. The bathroom was the size of a cupboard and there was a floor standing fridge with a microwave on top just stood in the corner, looked really out of place. It's a shame really because this room has so much potential. There is no plug socket by the mirror in the bedroom, so it's hair dryer and straighteners in the bathroom, at the sink...electric and water!!!!

Sandman Downtown on West Georgia is a great location. Quenn Elizabeth theatre across Georgia, BC Place and Rogers Centre just a few blocks east on Georgia. Very convenient. Moxie's on the 2nd floor is good; though very busy when an event is on.

the hotel during our visit to vancouver.the hotel was great, room was spacious and well equipped.
Staff is superb. We were welcomed by Atif from front desk who was professional ,friendly and helpful. We even had a nice chat while checking in , a fact that made us feel even more welcome.
Id be happy if our thanks and best wishes would be transfered to him.

The hotel location is excellent for tourism in the city.the hop on hop off bus or trolley picks you up from the hotel entrance. Its a big plus.

I mostly recommend about the hotel.

We spent 5 days in Vancouver and this hotel was so convenient for all the attractions. We visited Chinatown, Granville Island, Grouse Mountain,Stanley Park and the beaches around English Bay.The restaurant was very well presented and the breakfast was filling. The area around was a little daunting at night as there were quite a few tramps in the street. The Sky train to Watertown at Stadium was close, and the Canada line was about 6 minutes walk for the airport.

I stayed here for two nights in early March while in Vancouver for a course. The hotel is one block from a Canada Line SkyTrain station (to and from the airport) -- very convenient. Checking in was efficient. I was given a room immediately, even though I arrived a couple of hours before the usual check-in time. The room was small, but clean and quiet. The wifi speed fluctuated, but I experienced no dropped connections. The only drawback was that the desk chair would not lift high enough for the height of the desk (I'm 185 cm tall). Problem quickly solved by using a pillow as a booster. The Moxie's Restaurant attached to the hotel was acceptable for breakfast. Checking out was efficient. All in all, no complaints.

We were upgraded to a double queen corner room which was very spacious and with a great view of the dramatic stadium. The kids loved the indoor pool and hot tub. Great value. We were able to walk to the great food spots on Robson Street and highly recommend Patron Tacos and Cantina near the library.
