We stayed here for two nights and had the third floor. The rooms were clean and comfortable. There is construction next door, but they only work during the day. One out of two elevators is not working so we had to wait several times or we used the steps. Close to the hop-on/ hop-off trolly or bus and walking distance...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 30 June 2016

I stayed twice, in May 2016, before and after a cruise. Had a room on the 5th floor both times and the room size is great. Decor efficient if a little tired, but I understand they're working on that. Room was at the front so I enjoyed a nice balcony and a partial view of English bay. It can get...

Clean hotel with minimal amenities and very, very dated. It doesn't seem like any lobby, hallway renos have been done in many many years. No safe in rooms, VERY old elevators, no fan in bathroom, and very hard to control temperature in the room. Great location, comfy beds, but I am not sure we would stay here for that price...

This is the second time I have stayed at the Best Western Sands. The location is ideal - handy to public transport and located strategically close to Stanley Park and English Bay. It is a brief walk to many of the Stanley Park features - Seawall, Second Beach, Totem Poles and Aquarium. Even closer are the Amazing Laughing statutes and...

Stayed recently on a 3 day trip to Vancouver. Brilliant location with English Bay on your doorstep and an easy stroll around downtown. We stayed in the standard rooms which were excellent value. Rooms are dated, but clean and comfortable all the same. Good bar downstairs for a handy drink or food but there is so much near by we...

Hello Thank You for the review of the property. I am glad you enjoyed your stay with us and found the hotel to be good value and very comfortable.

The room was a bit dated, especially the bathroom. The first night the toilet water supply valve leaked onto carpet in foyer causing large (3sf - 1sm) wet spot at bathroom door entrance which was very wet and annoying. It was repaired the next day but still dripped slightly, not enough to run to carpet. We checked out the next...

Hello Thank You for the review of the property and i am glad you enjoyed your stay with us. The 5th floor balcony rooms are great with their partial ocean view. I do apologize about the minor leak in your room and understand how that could be annoying. We look forward to seeing you on your next trip to Vancouver.

The location is wonderful with Stanley Park and the beach right across the street. The bed was also comfortable and the room was reasonably clean (other than the carpet). Those are the only pluses and the reasons for the 3 rating. If not for the location I would have given this Hotel a 2. The hotel is very old and...

Staying in West End

Neighbourhood Profile
West End
A hodgepodge of landscapes, the West End combines verdant gardens and blocky modern architecture, with Victorian bits and Edwardian bobs in between. It is a paradise for takeout food, take-away coffee, and perhaps incongruously, some of Vancouver's most languid lines of beachfront. English Bay and Sunset Beach invite swimmers, strollers, and picnic-lovers to take in dusk settling over the water, or to jog along with the sunrise, offering breathtaking views at any time of day. The West End merges together so many looks and flavors probably because it functions a hub: its the leafy pit-stop between nightlife and entertainment venues along Davie Street, and the shopping paradise that is Robson Street, offering visitors beautiful parkland to rest on, and quick, easy food to re-fuel with in between ventures.
