Great location

The hotel is in a great location, with good restaurants,coffee shops, bakeries, and fresh fruit & vegetable markets nearby. A short walk to Robson Street, Stanley Park, English Bay, and a short water bus ride to Granville Island. The hotel is not fancy, but it was clean, the front desk people were friendly & helpful, and the small suite had a full kitchen. There is a pool, health spa, sauna, and business center for computer access (for a fee). My only complaint was that my laptop could not connect to the internet on the free connection in my room. Other than that, it was a great place to stay, and a good value

Great place to stay

The Sandman Suites on Davie was an ideal location. Everything you need is within walking distance, if not the bus system and Skytrain are excellent. The room was comfortable, with each room having it's own balcony. I took advantage of the free heated swimming pool, and sauna. The hotel staff were very helpful with directions to all areas of interest.

Excellent Guest Attention

The staff of the hotel was beyond friendly...they bent over backwards to ensure that our stay was excellent. The front desk staff was very professional and attentive. They addressed every concern we had, and even sent an attendant, to our room when our internet service went out. He was the best during our stay! The maid service forgot our room one day, but management ensured that they came at our convenience the next day. Also, management called us sporadically to inquire if we were pleased with the service. Our room on the 23rd floor had an awesome view of the harbor and mountains.

The attractions are just a short drive away (Stanley Park, Capilano brodge, Grouse mountain, Granville, Gastown). In fact you could probably walk to all these places (except for the Capilano and the Grouse).

A Great Spot in Vancouver

The location is excellent. It's right in the middle of a hip, alternative, charming neighborhood with lots of cool, little shops and places to eat. There are also nightlife spots (and parents should be advised there are some adult entertainment places right nearby, but they aren't particulary obtrusive--my kids never noticed them, especially since they aren't visible if you enter/exit the hotel through the parking garage). The staff at the hotel were all very friendly. The elevators were a little slow (one was out of order), but that is hardly a complaint. Overall, this place really rocked! It's a fun place at a great price. We stayed on the sea-view side of the hotel, and the view was amazing! Just looking out the balcony was a highlight of the trip. The hotel is just a few blocks from the beautiful English Bay and splendors of Stanley Park.

Friendly and Satisfactory

We arrived after a long tiring journey (plane holdups) so we were hoping all would be well with the hotel. Check in was friendly and quick, good staff on reception made us feel welcome. Room was slighty smaller than we imagined we had a delux ocean view with balcony. We had two windows the one with the balcony was breathtaking overlooked the ocean and the city, great photos. the other was views of the main street and city.We were on the 20th floor good lift no problems. The room had a kitchenette, fridge,microwave, dishwasher and washer dryer, iron kettle, coffee maker etc. All worked very well and were handy,beds comfy,very clean and tidy bathroom good, daily maid service kept everything clean fresh towels. We never felt uneasy in this area, bright well lit pently of shops, cafes, restaurants open till late. Not noisy for us but this could be due to the fact we were so high up on our floor. Hotel restaurant very nice and handy.Would stay there again.

Only one problem if you want to go on the rocky mountain railway you are not picked up at this hotel, but the pick up is two blocks down, dropped off afterwards outside hotel. Great location for the Vancouver tour bus and buses into town.Close to Robson street, great greek restaurant 3/4 mins away.

Fabulous Views and Affordable Options

If you want to be in the heart of Vancouver, feel like a star, and still have pocket change, you'll definitely want to stay at the Sandman Suites on Davie. It's worth the cost to get those stunning views of the harbor, so ante up, it will put a kick in your step and wow any visitors. The updated kitchen, fully equipped, allows you to splurge on the town, but keep other meals affordable. An excellent washer/dryer combo adds to overall convenience, especially if this is a business trip or one stop on a summer holiday! Be sure to check out festival dates far in advance, so you'll have the best rooms for them.

Good location

The hotel was in a good location for walking to restaurants, bars & clubs, shopping. I thought the suites should have either been a little bigger or laid out a little better. It seemed like a decent size hotel room that was retro-fitted with a wall down the middle to turn it into a suite. So the bedroom was very small, you had to crawl across the bed to get to the sliding door, as the television stand was about 10 inches from the end of the bed. (suggestion: flat panel wall mounted television perhaps) It was nice to have a kitchen, but when we first walked in the room it smelled sort of bad. The lobby area was very nice and modern. The Spa was very nice. The exterior of the hotel is very dated and needs some freshening up.

Sandman Suites

Located in downtown Vancouver, within walking distance to plenty of shopping and entertainment. Rooms offfered a full kithchen, seperate bedroom and balcony with good views. The space is a bit tight and the spare couch bed is too small for more than one person.
