Good for the price

Good value hotel. Nothing fancy but nothing really bad either. Room was clean if a bit small even in the corporate tower. Some confusion at check-in/out over parking being included in the package. Be sure to bring your confirmation details when checking in.

Great Location and Restaurant

It was close to downtown attractions and two blocks from a SkyTrain station. The elevators all had to be activated by a room key which can be a hassle when your hands all full.

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.

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.

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.

Great hotel

It was a great hotel, speedy check in from courteous staff, the room was a good size and very clean. Large flat screen. The bathroom was recently updated but poorly maintained there was mold growing in the grout. And the parking spots were very small, hard to get my baby out of the car. I had to back out because there wasn't enough room to get her seat in. Thank goodness I wasn't traveling alone or else we would've been in trouble.

Solid Place to Relax Downtown

I visited Vancouver for about 4 days for an Animation & Story Master Class presented through Van Arts. The Sandman was directly in the city-center, and made it easy for me to get to any location on foot, whether it was Coal Harbor, Stanley Park, or Gastown. The room accommodations were comfortable and very well maintained. It was one of the cleanest hotels I have stayed in. The hotel staff are very friendly and helpful. My luggage was lost on the way to Vancouver, and the hotel staff worked with the airline to ensure my luggage was promptly returned to me. It was a very stress-free experience. There are tons and tons of food options around town, but if you are looking for small grocery-like items there is a 7-11 right around the corner and larger establishments towards the suburbs. The only down (and small) part of my trip was finding an ATM that accepted more than Interac Cards. There are some in the business centers throughout the city (The Harbor Centre on Hastings has one in its food court area). I'd recommend bringing some cash/traveler's checks as a backup. Just in case you can't get to an ATM in a timely fashion.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

You are a short walk away from many of the major attractions in the downtown area. Coal Harbor is only a couple blocks north of the hotel, and many of the sports venues are just east of the hotel. Walking to Stanley Park isn't too bad of a walk either, and its an enjoyable place to relax and soak up nature.

Great for a quick soccer getaway.

great hotel for the value . Their front desk was helpful and the location was perfect!! The rooms were nice and clean, but you can tell the room itself needs some updating. but for a quick soccer getaway this hotel is a great choice. They did charge us $25 for arking but let us leave our car for our stay and for the rest of the following day while we watched our match. I will stay here again in the future and I would recommend this hotel for any out of town Sounders fan.

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.
