We spent a weekend Christmas shopping in Vancouver and stayed at the Sands by the Sea for a night. Best thing about this hotel: location. 1/2 block from Denman and Davies, it is located in the West End, on the shores of English Bay. Lots of funky places to eat, Denman Street is alive late into the evening (we stayed a Friday night), the beaches & seawall are right there if you like to lounge or run or stroll, and the view overlooking English Bay is spectacular. Be sure to ask for a water view room (costs a little bit more). Starbucks at the end of the block, Tim Hortons across the street, etc. Staff were extremely professional, and friendly. Only downside: thin walls. We had a couple with a child next door and heard everything they said. They didn't keep us up late or wake us early in the morning, but beware of this "feature". Otherwise would recommend the Best Western Sands by the Sea.
