Best Western - Our Usual Choice

Whenever we stay in hotels on our travels, we choose Best Western - for their value and location choice. We were disappointed this time. Though the Sands has updated features such as granite counter tops, the bathroom was very small with no fan. The beds in one of the rooms we had were uncomfortable, the breakfast was not included and there wasn't a pool or hot tub (both unusual for a 'Plus' level). The staff was very friendly, the hotel was clean, there was ample parking (for a fee which one would expect in downtown Vancouver).

Awesome Location

The hotel is steps away from English Bay, close to Stanley Park & Denman St., where there are a lot of restaurants & shops. Also close to the pick up location for Hop on Hop off tours, as well as public transpo going to the Canada Line (the train to Vancouver Int'l Airport). Some amenities are a bit outdated (like their elevator). The staff is very helpful and polite.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

If beach swimming is not for you but you would like to swim in a pool, Second Beach is just a short walk away (1.3 km, about 17 minutes) from English Bay. Head north towards Beach Ave, which turns into Stanley Park Dr. The pool will be on your left, overlooking the beach. Good place for people watching too (lots of Canadians in Vancouver are in really good shape!)

Great location, quality hotel.

Had a most enjoyable stay. The room was clean and comfortable and the staff was friendly and actively helpful. The bike rental place across the street was an added bonus for a glorious ride around nearby Stanley Park. Would happily stay there again.

Really Good Place to Stay

The location is the best. It is by the sea and you can find lots of restaurants near the hotel. The hotel seems a little old, but it has everything that you need. I really recommend this hotel if you are looking for an accommodation with reasonable price.

Weekend in Van

Accommodations were comfortable - not exceptional, but access to restaurants, views, and attractions was exceptional. Main outdoor attraction is Stanley Park (within walking distance), and many interesting dining options along Denman and Davie streets. A walk along the shoreline was also enjoyable providing the weather was cooperating.
