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.

  • Spacious suites with full kitchens and in-room washer and dryers
  • On-site Moxies Classic Grill serves great food to please nearly every palette
  • Seasonal outdoor pool available to all guests

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.

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!

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.

Only if you're desperate !!!

We upgraded to a "city view" room which cost us extra $ and our aspect was out towards Denman Street and Stanley Park (we couldn't see the park at all). We were told that anything above the 9th floor was considered a "city view" room, even if you weren't facing the city. What a rip off !!!! We had a one bedroom suite that was apparently for 4 people, however it only had towels for 2 people. We asked for some more towels and normal, non-decafinated coffee and decafinated coffee was bought to us; when we had stressed this point. There was absolutely no room to open the chest of draws. There was 20cm between the end of the bed and the chest of draws and I have a nice bruise on my hip from constantly hitting it. This hotel was so bad and we have travelled extensively .... absolutely the worst in Vancouver for us and we have probably stayed at 10 different places across the city.

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.

Excellent Hotel and Staff

I would recommend this hotel to anyone. The staff is very friendly and efficient. The location of the hotel is perfect to take advantage of the west end. The view was great overlooking English Bay. The kitchen was well equipped. I was very comfortable cooking.

Great Location

We stayed three nights at the hotel. If you don't mind walking, you can walk all over the city from China town, old town and Stanley Park all about one mile away. We stayed in the Penthouse on the top floor because we wanted the jacuzzi which was nice after walking around town, just remember that the penthouse is a studio room and doesn't have a seperate bedroom. Plenty of food choices and many great bakeries on the same block. A good hotel for the price and location. I would stay there again.
