Suites have all the comforts of home extremely well equipped - cooker, dishwasher, washer/ dryer and much more. Right across the street from a 24hr grocer/ pharmacy store. Close to numerous eateries including a Denny's. 10 minute walk to Stanley park. Staff very helpful.

Very central, easy to find, very comfortable. Staff very helpful. The room was very clean, and the bathroom well equipped. I was on floor 10 at the beginning of my stay, overlooking the main street. OK. Came back for a night at end of travels, and was on floor 18 at the back, overlooking the water. Good views.

Room Tip: The higher floors at the back of the hotel afforded good views over Vancouver water.

We stayed for 4 nights beginning of September and had a suite on the twentieth floor. Location wise, this hotel is great, the street is full of colorful and wonderful restaurants and cafes. We tried a number of restaurants on the street and were not disappointed, especially Cazaba (come out of the hotel, turn right and walk to the end of the road till you reach the traffic lights and look opposite). Fantastic place, nice Persian food and excellent value for money.

Now back to the hotel, the suite we had was pleasant although dated, you get a washing machine/dryer which worked both perfectly and silently in our case, it took about an hour to wash a full single wash and a good 2-3 hours to dry (depends on how dry you like your clothes). You get a big kitchen, cooker, toaster, kettle, microwave, fridge and dish washer which helped us save a considerable amount of money on food as some nights we cooked and stayed in, rather than eating out every night and spending more money. This meant we had extra money to spend on visiting other sites. The area is noisy, you got the hospital (St Paul) near by and a fire station as well, so you do get to hear ambulances and fire engines most nights. Unlike the UK, the ambulances and fire engines do generate a lot of noise even if it's 3am. Luckily we were on the 20th floor, this is why my advice will be to get a suite from floor 15 and above if you can, do try hard and don't take NO for an answer, if you want a quiet sleep that is.

We noticed the cleaning became worse and worse as days passed on, on a number of occasions the cleaner forgot to empty our bins and we had to complain at the reception. We also noticed the beds were not changed properly but that only happened on one occasion. The most annoying thing of all was the WIFI, although you get it free but it's close to useless, i found myself going downstairs most of the time to Starbucks next door and used their WiFi, this was very annoying. I complained to the reception and they did offer me a free voucher to use the Business broadband in the lobby which I accepted, turned out to be slow although this might be the state of Broadband in general in that area and not the hotel's fault.

We did have a fire alarm on the night before we left, this meant we had to use the stairs from the 20th floor which was hard work, the level of communications from the reception was very bad, they didn't tell us anything and nor did they offer any apology or compensation for the disruption. They appeared frozen and not properly trained to deal with such situations. Luckily it was a false alarm and we went back to our room shortly afterwards (it was a chance to meet and talk to other guests, so it was fun for few minutes).

Overall, our stay was memorable and mostly good than bad, the hotel introduced us to the wonderful range of restaurants and a lovely, lively and enjoyable street (Davie Street). There is a bus stop on the left as you come out of the hotel, the number 6 goes to most places around the city. It also saved us a considerable amount of money on cooking and that's what you want from a hotel, a place where you can do your own thing, great location and have a bed in the end of the day to sleep on. I encourage you to come and try this hotel, you will not regret it, come with an open mind and enjoy the experience but if you are fussy or with very high expectations then you may need to look elsewhere but it will be a shame for you not to try this hotel, even just for location and the lovely food this street has to offer. Good luck and enjoy your stay in this great city.

The Sandman Suites is an unexpected gem in the Vancouver neighborhood called Davie Village. The suite was fully equipped, with a very comfortable bed, 2 TVs, a full kitchen, a dining table, desk and sofa... even a washing machine. Yes, you could live here. From the 10th floor, I had an incredible experience one night watching a pouring rain and lightning storm. The neighborhood is small and funky, full of inexpensive restaurants and lots of local shops. Plus access to public transport and taxis. About the only criticism was spotty wireless access. Good pick for anyone seeking moderately priced comfort.

Room Tip: Higher floors have better views.

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...
