I stayed at the Sandman 9 nights in April 2014, 9 th floor convention tower.
Having read the reviews I was slightly worried, but had no choice as it was booked for me by my travel agent.
This was my experience;
The reception staff were consistently polite and very helpful made phone calls to sort out problems I had with onward travel arrangements.
The room (single with queen size bed) was clean, the bed comfortable, the view wasn't stunning, but then I didn't expect it to be given the location of the hotel. I slept really well, I was near the lift, but it wasn't noisy.
The housekeeping was faultless
The bathroom was small, clean and perfectly adequate there was constant hot water for bathing and showers.
The room was constantly supplied with fresh coffee , tea, complimentary shampoo/ conditioner, shower gel and body lotion.
The wifi was free and appeared to work perfectly fine to browse social networks and send emails.
There was a phone, flat screen TV,iron ,ironing board, full size hair dryer, coffee maker and an efficient air conditioner that I was able to set to my own preference
The pool was clean, with plenty of clean towels, it was well heated, ideal for relaxing and leisure swimming and ideal for families with younger children.
This is a good hotel at a good price in a good location for exploring Vancouver.
I have paid more per night at English travel lodges that provide absolutely nothing...my only conclusion is that there is a lot whinging folks out there who expect 5 star luxury at a budget price.
