“Sandman Suites on Davie”
Reviewed 1 November 2011

We have just spent three weeks at the above hotel. This is the second time that we have stayed there. I wrote a review last year praising them them for the quality of the apartment and also the service that we received whilst there. Twelve months later this has not changed and we can thoroughly recommend it The reception is first class and they are extremely willing to answer all your questions and queries.It is a good base to start your sightseeing of Vancouver and is centrally placed to easily get to all the visitor attractions. There are a large number of shops of all kinds on Davie Street and it is ideal for public transport. Well done Sandman.

Hotel has free WiFi. The suites are well equipped with a fully functional kitchen, even though the bedroom it self is a bit small. Lots of light. Washer Dryer in the room is great. Gym is well equipped and has a Steamroom attached. The Sofa bed us very comfortable.
The hotel uses the attached Moxie's rtestaurant as its own, but there is a well stocked supermarket nearby and a fantastic bakery next door.
G&L guests will enjoy the area. Pumpjack is across the street and there are many other bars and restaurants within a 2 block radius.
Excellent for an extended stay as well as a short stay. Business travelleres will appreciate the working space as well as good private in suite space if you have to have to have a meeting.

Room Tip: Ask for a room as high up as possible. View of Stanley Park looks at the water and the sunset.

This is my first visit to Vancouver from Ontario. I used tripadvisor.ca to choose this hotel according to the area, price and included amenities. I have now stayed at the Sandman Suites for a couple of nights and am very pleased so far. The staff have been great and very helpful and accommodating. The hotel is central, the room is very clean and it certainly is a bonus having access to all the appliances (including an in-suite washer/dryer.) The only negative thing I have to say is that the in-room internet (at least in my room) sucks most of the time. I was a bit concerned about the neighbourhood before I arrived, but I soon realized it's not much different from other cities and i'm already becoming quite familiar with the area. I still have a couple of days before I have to leave Vancouver, however so far it has been a trip of a lifetime and my accommodations at Sandman have been very satisfactory!

Room Tip: great view from the higher floors

My husband and I recently stayed at the Sandman on Davie for a few nights. It's a real mixed bag, so here are the pros and cons -

Pros - great location, right near a 24 hour supermarket/pharmacy and plenty of terrific affordable restaurants. Lovely walk to Stanley Park and the beach. Having a washing machine and kitchen in the room/suit is brilliant too. The reception is also very stylish.

Cons - Having seen the stylish reception, the very shabby, old fashioned rooms were a real disappointment (although the white goods were pretty new). The air con is one of those old boxes on the outside wall with a vent, which was practically useless, and the decor would have been old fashioned 15 years ago, with chipped furniture and very tired everything.

But the WORST THING about this hotel was the fact that, without telling me, my credit card was charged $400 as a 'hold' when we checked in, and although I was told when we checked out that this would be refunded in 3 days, I ended up having to chase the hotel manager (who was VERY rude on email, saying that all North American hotels did this...well, having just stayed in 5 different hotel chains in America and Canada, the Sandman on Davie was the only one that a) didn't tell me, b) charged so much, and c) didn't automatically release the charge on checkout.) I also chased the hotel chain owner on Facebook, who did reply but didn't follow it up, and did not apologise for the rudeness of his hotel manager. I was finally refunded the money after more than 2 weeks, which is no fun when you're on holiday and need access to YOUR OWN MONEY.

So, there are good points about this hotel (basically location and washing machine!), but make sure that you can afford an extra $400 on top of your spending money before you check into this hotel as you may have a fight on your hands to get the hold dropped from your card.

We are so impressed with this hotel. The service is excellent. We had a problem opening our balcony door and it was fixed within 5 minutes. The apartment has every thing you need including a washer and dryer. The kitchen has all the necessities to cook a meal but why would you want to do that when there is every kind of restaurant you could imagine within a couple of blocks of the hotel. Yes Davie Street is bustling all the time but the apartment is reasonably sound proof and we all slept very well. We did not encounter any undesirable individuals or any loud noise or shouting of any kind. In fact people were very friendly. There are several fruit and vegetable markets in the same block, the liquour store is a block away and there is also a large grocery store. It was handy to pick up some breakfast things. The apartment is only about 4 blocks from the ocean. All this for approximately $100. Most hotel rooms I looked at in the area were more than that and they are only one room. A real deal. I highly recommend this hotel.

The hotel is located in a very loud, raucous area. Noisy traffic and lots of drunk people shouting in the streets (and in our hallway) kept us awake between the hours of 11:00pm-2:30am. Other than that the room was fine, but we will not stay here again due to the noise.

We had a really good stay here while in Vancouver.
The room (or suite!) was lovely nice amount of space good view from our blacony
we stayed with our daughter who had a fold down sofa bed in the lounge - this did actually take a lot of room up - but was fine for us - the only minor problem was we were only given towels for two despite booking for three
the area is in the middle of Vancouvers 'gay village' - it is also within walking area of the water and downtown
We did find the carpark a little bit hard to find and get into
Breakfast was served next door at the adjoining 'Moxie's Bar and Grill'
It was basic but a fine start to the day
We were there in the summer and our daughter really enjoyed the swimming pool which she had to herself
All in all the stay was really good - the reception staff were very helpful and I would recommend this hotel to all
