First Try and Really Good

Great position and simple hotel to stay away from the main area of Davie Street, close to all shops and plenty to eat around the streets. Simple hotel well worth the stay. Nice and Quiet location, great service great staff at reception.

Vancouver BC - Beautiful City

The Best Western Sands in Vancouver BC was located in the center of everything we wanted to see and visit. We thought we would have to take a taxi to visit the sites of Vancouver but found the hotel was close to everything. We enjoyed walking every day to restaurants, the unique shops along the streets and even walked to the Public Market. The hotel was clean, rooms were HUGE and the beds were so comfortable. I had not visited Vancouver before and actually did not know anything about the city or location of the Best Western Sands. It turned out we had made the right choice in selecting the Best Western Sands on Davie Street.

On the way back

The hotel was OK but on a very busy street and very noisy.Thicker glass plate would have helped.The noisy ice dispenser outside my room didn't help.

Great place to stay

Location very good, almost on the beach at English Bay. Plenty of restaurants and cafes within minutes as well as Stanley Park. Room at the back was very quiet. Can be reached from the city by either of two bus routes.

Good Location

We went with a group of friends, booked 6 rooms altogether. Staffs at counter are very friendly and helpful. We stayed there 3 times within 2 weeks as we stayed in Vancouver first, then went up to the Rockies and back to Best Western Plus Sands. Second time the room on 3rd floor was not as nice as the 2nd floor. Some rooms have microwave but ours didn't. Coffee was not so good. But all in all we were quite happy.

Purchase a day pass on public transport as it covers all aspects of travel and you can visit many local sights in one day. Lynn Canyon is definitely worth a visit.
