A good experience

Located in a safe neighborhood, close to shops, walking distance to where commercial ships dock. Felt secure in this hotel, as we were two foreign female travelers. Did not use any of the amenities/restaurants, but staff was very friendly and anxious to offer assistance in any way needed. The room had been updated to a more modern feel and included a flat screen TV. Our remote did not work, but courteous staff attended to the issue until it was solved. Overall, it was nicer than expected-the name's a little corny & connotated a cheap hotel in my mind, but we were very pleased. I'd stay there again.

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!

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.

small rooms

The downtown Sandman was conveniently located near the cruise ship dock. The rooms were small,about the size of the stateroom on the ship. The room was clean and the service was ok. Our dinner at the hotel restsurant was very good.

Good value, but

don't expect much out of the air conditioner. We happened to stay during a heat wave when the temperature was in the 80's. The room was very reasonably priced and a good size. The attached restaurant was a god choice for a late night meal or snack.

Sandman stay

Though busy front desk and hallway noise was periodically a problem, the location was excellent. We also had a corner room which has terrific windows all around with a view.
