Sandman Hotel Vancouver City Centre

Reviewed September 18, 2013

Clean tidy room, although a little dated. Friendly and efficient staff. They need more people on the front desk when they are under pressure with guests checking in and out. Restaurant extremely good. Pity they do not offer a shuttle to and from the airport which is far away from the City

Very clean spacious room with two comfortable double beds in twin room. Very friendly and helpful staff. Nice and central and about 35 Canadian Dollars in cab from airport and about 13 Dollars right to cruise terminal. Has a restaurant also so handy for late arrival.

Room Tip: Choose a high floor to avoid early morning traffic noise

our stay started off badly, we had booked twin room and the hotel voucher clearly showed this yet they booked our room as a double, as we arrived around 6pm they had to give us another room which was appauling on the 3rd floor with windows that looked straight onto a concrete wall. had to accept this for the first night. next morning went and complained and got given a room on the 11th floor and could see the water front between the tower blocks. room was huge. first room had fridge second room didn't. bathroom was ok. not far from the science centre place and the skytrain stop. also the trolley bus stops outside. easy walking distance to other attractions and places to eat. wifi was free which was good. pool was good not very warm though!

Location is very good. Internet connectivity in the room ver poor except you go down to the lobby. House-keeping may not be done until 3-4pm.
The staff are very courteous even if they would not do what you have requested. Phone calls to the restuarant and the lobby may ring for a while without answer. Remember, the queue at check-in and check-out may be long if you are unlucky and may take 30min to 1 hour to be attended to!

Clean well appointed rooms with separate bathroom. Fridge in room. No water bottles. Tea/coffee making facilities. Well placed mirrors & plugs. Free wi-fi. Friendly helpful staff.
Complaints - really tight parking basement freaked me out every time going in and out of there, especially having a rental vehicle; had to get my room cards re-activated way too many times; really noisy air con - had to shut bathroom door and still had trouble sleeping as still too noisy and then room hot as well.

We always stay at this hotel when going to concerts at Rogers Arena. It is only about a 3 minute walk from the stadium, it has Moxies (good food) and the Shark Club (good drinks) attached to it, the beds are very comfy and check out is not until noon. What more can you ask for?
The only down side is that the rooms are very small. If you upgrade to a corporate king though, you will get much more space. Totally worth the money to upgrade!

We stayed here on our last night after traveling from Calgary to Vancouver over a couple of weeks and didn't exactly receive a warm welcome. The man on reception who checked us in came across as extremely uninterested and made us feel awkward; no greeting or small talk, we were just about lucky enough to get a thank you.

The rooms are to a good quality and very clean. Our sleep was unfortunately disturbed by the fire alarm going off early in the morning; being on the 9th floor this was far from ideal. After rushing down the emergency stairs the lobby was full of guests not sure what was going on. The hotel manager than announced that the fire department had been and it was a false alarm. Another guest then informed us that the same thing had happened the previous morning.

This hotel is excellent situated (yards away from the BC Place) and is therefore ideal for exploring Vancouver, however I wouldn't come here expecting a high quality of service.
