Great Location

Comfortable bed and sofa, wireless internet included, and walking distance to Canada Place, the Aquarium, and a large variety of restaurants and shops made for a great hotel choice. I would definitely consider staying there again. The only downside was the fact that the bathroom had a mildew smell from shower curtain / minimal ventilation.

Best Western Sands

room was small & bed against wall so access from 1 side only, but clean & comfortable. Nice to have restaurant downstairs for good breakfast. Fee for car parking added to overnight cost & not used to being charged a damage deposit.

Very nice.

We visited Vancouver for a day. The accommodations were very nice. The staff was helpful. We were slightly disappointed that we didn't have a water view, but we were so happy with the room that it didn't really matter.

Great staff and hotel

We had a great stay. It was a busy weekend in Vancouver with the finale of Celebration of Light and the Pride parade on Sunday morning. The staff was very helpful to us navigating around the area during both events. Especially the parade morning when we had to leave for the airport and many local streets were closed. The rooms were spacious, clean, and we had a refrigerator in our room which we didn't expect. The hotel is also very recycle and environmentally friendly and they enforce it, which we liked. Great location for English Bay, Sunset Beach and Stanley Park-Aquarium. It is also very good for any bus lines you would need to travel throughout the city. We would stay at the Sands again.

Sightseeing tip: Short drive from hotel

Grouse Mountain was not too far of a drive from the hotel, and a much more fun experience than the Capsilano bridge. Both are expensive to tour, and the bridge is neat, but there are many more things to do at Grouse Mountain and the view of the Ocean and Vancouver is incredible. Plus the bistro has great drinks and food that is at the top of the mountain.
