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.

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.

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.

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.

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

With two televisions, a ...

With two televisions, a dishwasher and an ensuite European-style washer/dryer, it was better equiped than my place. There is a sofa-bed so the room is good for families. Excellent staff who immediately responded to a key card problem and had no problems with a one hour check-out delay request. Room was very clean, all well maintained and with great views from the balcony. There even free internet access in the room. 10 units per floor, so if you can, ask for a corner room; with more windows, more light. One drawback was the bedroom was a bit small. Very narrow space between the bed and the dresser. Not good for the physically challenged. I will stay at the Sandman Suites on Davie the next time I'm in Vancouver.

Convenient location and stay

The Sandman was conveniently located (somewhat like being in NY City). Outside of the hotel is a coffee shop, bakery and fruit and vegetable market with sidewalk stands. You can walk to any desired ethnic food restaurant, as the street is lined with casual dining. The room has a very well kept, fully equipped kitchen and a comfortable bed with living room pull-out couched, which did not induce any complaints from our 16 year old son. In fact the Greek restaurant right next door had a motley standing queue waiting for dinner. Robson St. is a $5 cab ride away, or you can walk through nice shopping/business neighborhoods. The Sandman's personnel is accommodating. We even stored our luggage for the day while we enjoyed the city until our evening flight.

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 stay

I have only stayed at this hotel every time I come to Vancouver. The best central location to stay, comfortable walking distance to Yaletown, Ferry to Granville, Stanley Park. If cooking/ Foodie is your thing, the kitchen has all the basic cookware and with the new fresh seafood doors away and Granville market across the river just minutes by ferry, can't beat your own possibilities and creations. great reasonable restaurants, the best poutine across the street, downtown nightlife just 10 minutes away, housekeeping always the best. Yeah,,, I like this place, especially during the summer. So easy to get to from the airport. Haven't been here for the winter yet, but will soon.

For the Foodie, Granville market has so many options, yeah its $$$ for some items like foie gras (in a can or fresh), but for fromage, charcuterie, fresh meats, bread, seafood and so much more, 1 week is not enough
