Fantastic Location

The location is great as walking distance to Robson Street and the Granville area. The room was small but comfortable and clean. I was on the top 11th floor, the elevator are slow and small, so I would recommend to book rooms at the lower floors if possible.

Great location, close to everything!

I went to Vancouver for a wedding. While I was in town I planned on seeing as much as I could. The hotel is centrally located and it is close to pretty much everything if you don't mind walking just a little. My room was small but with that said, everything inside of it was working and it was clean. You have to keep in mind that the hotel is located in the city and the rooms are going to be small. The Skytrain station is a brisk walk away, Yaletown is probably a 10 minute walk and I walked to the convention center within 20 minutes. The closest stop is a 10 minute walk to the southwest! Back to the hotel again, it is most convenient to have a sports bar, restaurant/bar and a cafe all downstairs too.

Nightlife tip: Short walk from hotel

Yaletown is good for staying out til 3am in the morning. Lots of people around and the crowd and area is decent. You don't have to watch your back walking back to the hotel. Gastown = lots of bums and back alleys are shady. Also, the Aquabus, a water taxi, is very convenient and fun!

Excellent choice for the money!!!

The main restaurant was not open for guests. The choices for downtown restaurants was overpriced with poor service. The hotel staff was friendly and helpful when asked questions that they could answer or they would direct you to someone who could answer your question. The rooms are efficient, clean and comfortable, quiet and we received a good nights rest. They have a separate desk for excursions and rental vehicles that was manned by very helpful people. If we return to Vancouver we will request rooms at this hotel again.

Good location but terrible parking facility

The Sandman Inn was a comfortable place to stay. The car parking was terrible with no instructions how to enter into the parking lot from the front desk receptionist. The elevator and the garage always needed the key to enter into. They don't tell you to insert the key and how you should insert it. It took us 45 minutes to find the garage, park and take our luggage to the lobby. They ought to have some help in the front lobby to take off your luggage and take it to the room. At least 3 other people came to the front desk to ask how they could enter the garage. The queen size bed they refered is a regular bed. If you really have to be to close to the BC Place, this may be convenient.

Excellent Hotel, Not The Best Location!

Pros: The Sandman located in Vancouver was quite comfortable, although by American standards the room was somewhat smaller than what you will typically find in the states. The hotel and dining staff were outstanding, the food was quite good, and the atmosphere in the hotel was very pleasant. It is also located very near to Vancouver's principal attractions (Gastown and Chinatown), as well as being just a few minutes by taxi to the cruise ship terminals (there are two of them and they're about a half-mile apart, so make sure you know where your ship is mooring at). Cons: The hotel location was not the greatest, for it appeared to be right on the border line between the better parts of Vancouver and the not-so-safe area of the city. However, the easiest way to avoid these areas is to walk a couple of blocks northeast before turning north towards Gastown (in other words, don't walk north up Beatty or Cambie towards Gastown, but rather go NE on West Georgia before turning north/right on Hamilton or Homer). To avoid getting lost, I also highly recommend taking a street map of the city with you, which is available at the hotel lobby desk. The only really con about the hotel itself is that the elevators are small and they're very slow, so patience is a must when travelling between floors! Overall, I'd highly recommend the Sandman, given the reasonable price and its very helpful, courteous, and professional hotel and dining staff.

Nice for the price

This is a great place if you just need a place to sleep. The room is small, but has free wireless internet access which made traveling a little easier. The service was above average and parking was easy (small fee). Lots to see and is close to the cruise terminals. Would definitely stay here again.

Dining tip: In Hotel

Moxie's was just down the hall from us and is a great restaurant with awesome service. Tends to get a little loud after a hockey game, especially during the playoffs when the Canucks win (the hockey stadium is across the street). Food was excellent and would definitely go there again.

Nice hotel

The location was great - lots of restaurants nearby. Room was very comfortable in every way, staff very professional and helpful. What was weird and confusing was the location of the restaurant - it's actually not in the hotel, but attached to it. There were some signs directing you in the general right direction, but we kept ending up at dead ends. We eventually just walked out the front door of the hotel and walked 5 feet to the exterior front door of the restaurant. Really weird configuration. But the food was great, so I guess that makes up for it.

Nice and clean

The room was nice & clean for the price we paid. It was quiet, but the room was kind of small. We didn't stay in the room much so it was o.k. The people were very nice and helpful. I would recommend staying here.We had a great time.
