1st time in Vancouver

We had a lovely 4 day stay. Staff at reception were aproachable and very helpful - nothing was too much trouble. Same with room staff. Great views and a really central location for sightseeing. We walked everywhere! Bed not as comfortable as expected yet perfectly clean

wonderful stay!

We had a wonderful stay at the Sandman. Even though we arrived early (11am) we were given a room. The room was comfortable and clean. All staff we encountered were friendly and helpful. The location is great, it's called Sandman City Centre for a reason: it's located within walking distance to the major attractions. Just a block away is Robson street where you will find food and major shopping.

The Sandman

This hotel was a great place to stay during our 4 day stay in vancouver. Great location for both walking to Gastown, Downtown, Waterfront, etc, and for easily getting on public transit. Staff was great, the room was clean, everything worked well. The only thing that was improbable was the slightly slow wifi to the rooms. Otherwise a great stay in a great location!

Time-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Most places are easiest to get to by walking (some are listed in review) so save your money and time from buying metro passes and just walk around. There are plenty of places to discover.

Great location at Sandman VANC

Our experience was fairly good, a bit crazy at check in, they had a sell out and they should have had more staff to accommodate it. Rooms are smaller than I expected, we got a KING room but the bed was not a KING. Bathrom was ok, not very much sink counter space. not enough towels. Extra blankets would have been nice as well. Would stay there again BUT now we know what to expect. thanks for asking.

Drinks are very expensive at the sports arenas, there is a liquor store about 2 blocks on Robson, we would have pre-drinks in the room before we ventured out.

Hot small room, unable to connect wifi

if you can stand the heat, air con mal function and a tiny room only to have a shower and a bed to sleep overnight, no need to use wifi in the room then it will suit you need. Location is good.

Noisy room

Everything was great except for the noise in the corridor and next room, you can hear every word people are saying. The partying and fights kept us up half the night. Needs some soundproofing in the North Tower!!!

Good for the price

A good deal ($159 for 2 nights with two double beds). Room clean and staff courteous and helpful. Plumbing a bit suspect and room could use some maintenance but it was clean. Not a great view but close to everything and for the money good value.
