Just like home, but with a much better view

With the exciting West End at the doorstep, beautiful English Bay in view and spacious suites with full kitchens, Sandman Suites offers a great location for an extended stay. Keep fit with a long walk or jog along nearby English Bay or utilize the fully-equipped, on-site fitness center. Guests relax at the seasonal outdoor pool or rejuvenate at pHresh Spa +Wellness Club, where massage, skincare and yoga are all available. Dining in is easy with full kitchens in every suite, but eating out is just as fun with Moxie's Classic Grill right downstairs.

small and average, but great kitchens

The staff were very helpful and friendly. The rooms were small. Queen bed barely fit in queen room. Bathroom just barely big enough to open the door. The shower head had almost ZERO pressure. Sound from the city is very loud - very little noise dampening through the walls or windows. Nice location, and it was nice to have in/out parking privileges (for a fee). We didn't need the kitchen, but if we were going to Vancouver again and needed one, we'd stay at Sandman again - but choose a bigger room. Stove, large fridge, lots of cabinets - you could avoid eating out as much as you want on a longer trip.

There is a nice Persian restaurant down Davie toward English Bay, a few (about 10?) blocks.

Parking

I feel that there should not be a charge for parking when paying the high price for staying here ... that and there was no hot water for a shower at night.. otherwise a good hotel for downtown

The Pride of Vancouver Needs More!

Attended Vancouver Pride Festival and the Sandman Suites location is a perfect/excellent centralized location for attendance, especially if walking to events or sites. The accomodations at the Sandman Suites are nicely appointed but the climate control in hot weather is faulty. Installing AC upgrades in the room as well as double pane window glass for coolness retention and street noise reduction would be advisable. The elevators are extremely slow to call, hot and unventilated. As a first time customer, I recommend booking lower floors and taking the stairs to spend your time more efficiently!

Weekend in Vancouver

[...] The hotel in right in the center of Davie village, is connected to a nice restaurant/lounge, and is near good restaurants and shopping. The room was nice and clean, pretty much set up like a one bedroom apartment. I didn't get a chance to check out the pool, or workout area.

Great for an overnight stop, good value

The hotel was good for a one night stop over, the only small problem was the sofa bed was too small even for 2 young children,but would cope for one night apart from that the hotel was in a good location and within a 20minute walk of the Gastown area which is a must.

Location, Location, Location

The Sandman is in a great location. The front desk service was friendly and helpful. Parking is extra, and with tax it amounts to about $26 night. The rooms are clean and the bed was comfortable. The shower didn't drain well, but otherwise the room seemed to be in decent working order. We liked the suite style. Overall, this is a good value for the price.

We had an excellent meal at Takis Taverna (Greek) just a short walk away. It didn't have the long line of one of the other competitors, but the food was excellent.

Get the biggest room or suite you can because the rooms are small. Get the highest room you can because the views are excellent.

Vancouver Downtown Stay

Hotel was in a good location to catch public transportation. Close to restaurants and groceries. We had room that was next to elevators - would try to avoid if possible - little noisy mechanics. Pool was nice. As any downtown - can be a little noisy. Bars do not close at 2! Open later and louder. We had "limited view" room, but saw the city, some mountains and a peek of the water.
