Sandman suite needs some improvement

We had stayed in this hotel before and had an overall good impression. The room was cleaner and front desk employees were friendlier and helpful. We did not have the same experience this time.

Sandman Suites on Davie

Traveled to Vancouver and wanted to stay downtown near everything. It was the hockey playoffs and nearly everything was booked. Found the Sandman Suites on [...]and booked with themThe hotel is in a fairly decent location. Was given a room and found that the room was not quite what I expected. The suite was small and had a loveseat that took up the entire seating area in the living room. The double bed took up all of the bedroom leaving small areas on each side of the bed to walk by and about a six inch area in front of the bed to cross in front of the old TV and out to the living area. The living area had a small stove, refrigerator and utensils. The bed was soft and uncomfortable. The bathroom had a broken shower which was not fixed during our 4 day stay there - the water did not shut off and the mixing valve did not work, giving us cold to luke warm showers. The suite was made up late every day. The front desk staff was indifferent. A key card was needed to work the elevators and most of the time the cards did not work and we ended up at times locked in an elevator since you needed a key card to work to press the buttons. At times the key cards had to be rekeyed since they did not open the room or the elevator. The front desk staff was indifferent. Parking was underground but needed the key card which variably worked. Room service is from Moxies Restaurant and at times they did not have staff so you had to go down and get the food yourself. The food was poor with undercooked burgers that tasted off.

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.

Sightseeing tip: In Hotel

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

Terrible family visit

Hotel was average but the elevators were the worst I ever experienced. Had to walk up and down 10 flights because of the wait. Average wait was 10 minutes but as long as 45 minutes. I would never stay there again. Our first room smelled like mildew but they moved us after 3 days. Stayed 8 days because I could not find another hotel. Avoid this one at all costs

Vancouver Davie Village

Hotel was in a easy location. Huge variety of ethnic restaurants, food markets, fruit stands very close by. Always a taxi in front of the hotel when needed. Downtown was an easy walk as was the ferry to Granville Island and Stanley Park. Room was clean, kitchen was modern, clean and very useful for breakfast and snacks. Bathroom a bit cosy. Bed was a full size and had a bit of a dip in the middle. Staff was responsive to anything we needed (TV remote needed batteries for example). Washer/dryer combo worked but a bit tricky to use. Was an all in one unit. Clothes came over very wrinkled. Hard to figure out how to use it and directions were not very helpful. All in all a very good stay. Would stay there again. Oh, nice pool too!

Suite Convert

The Sandman Suites were the perfect choice for our trip to Vancouver! The hotel is conveniently located in the heart of downtown and is within walking distance to everything from great restaurants to the sky train. While we enjoyed the local grub, we were also able to save a little by shopping at the market down the street and cooking meals in our fully stocked kitchen. Having an in suite washing machine was also super helpful for our long stay. For the price, I'd recommend the Sandman Suites to anyone in a heart beat.

Safeway is just a short walk west of the hotel and is a lot less expensive for groceries than shopping at the small markets or Shoppers.
