I visit Vancouver a few times a year, and this is absolutely my go-to spot. The location is awesome. A block from the beach in English Bay, a massive selection of restaurants, pubs and cafes all within minutes walk. The hotel itself has a great pub which always has something happening every night, as well as another awesome pub/restaurant called...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 5 January 2017 via mobile

We were here in late September prior to a Pacific Coastal cruise. The location downtown was excellent and gave us easy access to restaurants and tourists sites. We could walk to the nearby water to watch sunsets with the locals and there was a Hop on Hop Off bus stop right there. We were a short cab drive away from...

We stay at this property frequently with our kids. It is in a perfect location for all we need to do when in YVR. The rooms are clean, housekeeping have always been terrific & wifi is free. There is always parking available. I suggest a room facing the parking lot as Davie street is very noisy and busy. The restaurant...

We stayed 3 nights at this Hotel. Staff is friendly and helpful. Decent hotel for the price and location. Nothing luxurious or fancy but comfortable and clean. Good hotel for a quick getaway. Lots of restaurants within walking distance and bus stop is in front of hotel.

The hotel was a little dated but paid less than $100/night in Vancouver which was great. Staff was friendly and the pub downstairs was open late. Overall good location. Was not a 5 star hotel but I was not expecting that for the price. Plenty of restaurants and pubs in walking distance.

We loved the location, price, staff. Be sure to request a room with a view. The room was clean and large enough for 2 people. Windows need to be updated. We will stay again when we visit Vancouver next. This is a 4 star hotel in a 5 star area, please don't have take this review as a 5 star...

The Sands is perfectly located for just about every iconic Vancouver experience. Great food just around the corner in every direction. The beach - right across the street. Stanley Park? Also right down the block. Head 10 minutes the other direction and you can hop one of the cute little ferries that whisk you across False Creek for Granville Island....

Staying in West End

Neighbourhood Profile
West End
A hodgepodge of landscapes, the West End combines verdant gardens and blocky modern architecture, with Victorian bits and Edwardian bobs in between. It is a paradise for takeout food, take-away coffee, and perhaps incongruously, some of Vancouver's most languid lines of beachfront. English Bay and Sunset Beach invite swimmers, strollers, and picnic-lovers to take in dusk settling over the water, or to jog along with the sunrise, offering breathtaking views at any time of day. The West End merges together so many looks and flavors probably because it functions a hub: its the leafy pit-stop between nightlife and entertainment venues along Davie Street, and the shopping paradise that is Robson Street, offering visitors beautiful parkland to rest on, and quick, easy food to re-fuel with in between ventures.

“Front of hotel has ocean views! It's maybe a bit noisier though as it fronts onto Davie, but I think the windows are new, as it was quiet.”
