“Don't Bother With Sandman”
Reviewed 12 September 2013

The online photos look great but the rooms are really terrible. Kitchen was nice but the washer did not work right and it takes 4 hrs for just 1 load. The walls were damaged with holes and the rooms overall were dingy, paint and plaster peeling on the balcony and the rooms smelled quite musty. Exposes plumbing lines in the bathroom. The A/C is only in one room. either the living room or the bedroom. It was hot when we stayed and the A/C was in the living room and did not cool the bedroom very well. The TV's did not work properly, most channels were snowy and the remotes have all the number worn off so you don't know which buttons to push. Neither remote worked to turn the TV's on or off, we had to do that on the TV itself. Our last nite there the fire alarm went off at 1am. Woke us up and had to evacuate from the 21st floor for a false alarm. No apologies from the hotel. We paid $18 per nite for parking but upon leaving there was ticket on our car for a $100 fine because they did not see the parking pass in the corner of our windshield. We had to go back into the hotel so they could clear the parking ticket. The location is okay, but there are much better places to stay at the same price. The Rosedale on Robson, where we stayed last time, is a much nicer area and a much nicer hotel. We will never stay at a Sandman Hotel again.

Room Tip: If you get a suite make sure the A/C is in the bedroom and not the living room. It cannot cool both...

I've stayed in Sandman near Toronto Airport - superb - the location on Davie felt a little more downscale - but nevertheless was still reasonably good.

Room was clean with lots of space - full kitchen. Quiet location yet still near restaurants, grocery stores etc...

Overall I think reasonably good value at under $200/night.

What a gem ! We were on the 21st floor, with a view of Vancouver to die for!
The lounge/dining room/kitchen was large with lots of natural light from patio doors and windows.and the kitchen was extremely well equipped with cooker, microwave, fridge freezer, and even a dishwasher. Hidden away in the entrance hallway was a washer dryer.There was oodles of wardrobe space around the apartment ( this was no ordinary hotel room ). The staff were very friendly and helpful. There were a couple of minor issues with the room when we arrived, but these were addressed immediately. Only downside was getting to and from the room because of the number of floor and especially when the room maids were out and about. It was no real problem though. All in all, My wife and I could quite happily live there.

Room Tip: If only for the view ask for one of the higher floors.

Penthouse suites have good view - prices are very reasonable

Food and Restaurants all over

Some of the rooms have view of English Bay

Perfect for events downtown, or just a weekend out as we did

All the best

Room Tip: The higher the better the quality of the rooms get.

Room was hot like a furnace. Air conditioner initially did not work; front panel was missing and the knob was difficult to reach. Internet was worse than average. Front desk staff was very rude, repeatedly asked if I understand what he said… Paid the fines and switched to another place. I will not stay at this place again.

It was like living there with hotel rooms with a full kitchen and living room. Super clean with good amenities - pool, gym, restaurant. In a great part of the city. Alternative to the downtown hubub.
A great find.

Room Tip: The higher floor the better view.

Great location for us as we had family not too far away. A little noisy at times but not too bad. Had a great view of the downtown area as we stayed on the tenth floor. Service was great and staff was very friendly. Even when my lost luggage arrived they had put it away safe and sound. All in all I would stay there again.
