As other reviewers have said, the location of this hotel is fantastic for exploring Stanley Park, the seawall, downtown shopping and even Granville Island market and vicinity. If you want to take the bus, there are several that stop right in front of the hotel. Everything you could possibly want to eat or drink is right in the neighbourhood -...

Great location to Stanley Park, shopping and restaurants, recently upgraded. We have been staying at the Sands for years, Convenient to English Bay. You can walk to Robson Street, the main shopping street in Vancouver or take the city bus right outside the hotel.

If you're looking for a central hotel near Stanley Park, this would be your best choice for your visit to Vancouver. The hotel is across the street from the start of the sea walk, so you can walk to Stanley Park without all the parking expenses. There are many good restaurants on Davies and Denman Street, you will have all...

It was a pleasant surprise! I will start off with the worst things about the hotel: Lobby and the lift. It looked very dated and I was expecting the room to be the same. That's about all. Room: New, clean, large and modern. We booked the cheapest one on Expedia. Comes with free food coffee. Toilet: looks dated but clean...

The location is the most important thing about this hotel; denman and davie, across from english bay. The suites on the top floor provide a small deck where you can view the ocean. Lots of interesting eating places within walking distance. The rooms are clean and modern but not really luxurious; would go back. I increased the rating to 4...

This hotel was comfortable and the location was very good. Within walking distance of many good restaurants. End of a tour run by Road's Scholars. Most of our trips were done by tour bus, i.e. parks and museums. This hotel's breakfast wasn't great though, but there was a Starbucks down on the corner.

Had no problem with the staff or the location just the fact the deposit was 250 and it took days to reflect on my credit card. This is a huge pain when you are travelling and I wasn't impressed that it took from checkout on the 13th till the 18th to clear. An example of another hotel which was 4...

We booked this hotel because it is convenient to the cruise terminal, a short ride away. The check in was fast and efficient, our room was comfortable, and the bedding was very good.

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.
