Nice to see the Hotel upgrading and renovating this location! We had a newly upgraded room and it was very comfortable with the standard trappings - but it did have the bonus of a comfortable couch with which to enjoy the stunning English Bay views. Restaurant downstairs served great breakfast and the Bayside Room is and will always be the best place to enjoy a nightcap overlooking All of English Bay and beyond!

Room tip: Southside rooms offer views of the Bay - the higher rooms would be quieter against street traffic!

The room makeover looks great, the bathrooms need to be remodelled. Great service at the front desk. A bit of an attitude from the Park restaurant hostess. A lovely meal at the Bayside Lounge and dancing the night away in the club.

Hello

Thank You for the review of the Best Western Plus Sands. I am glad you enjoyed your stay with us and found the hotel remodel to look great. We are in the process of renovating the bathrooms. I apologize the hostess at our one restaurant left you with a negative experience. I will speak with her and coach her up but I am glad you had a great time at the Bayside Lounge. We look forward to seeing you on your next trip to Vancouver.

From the moment I arrived at this location I was impressed with the level of service from all of the staff. Yes, hotel staff should smile and welcome you when you arrive but this was different. You could tell that they were being genuine. Even when we got up to our room the housekeeping staff took the opportunity to welcome us and to ensure that we were completely satisfied with the room. The bellhop opened the entrance doors in anticipation of our return.. you don't even get that nowadays at the High end and expensive hotels anymore. We truly felt like we were part of the family. Thank you for a great stay.

Well designed simple space, friendly staff and quiet morning wake-up provided us with a very pleasant experience. Situated close to a large variety of restaurants, beach access and the walkway/promenade into Stanley Park makes this a great place to saty when visiting.

Hotel was centrally located. Easy access to English Bay. I only stayed night but the amenities were plentiful- a fitness room, a bar and restaurant and close to public transportation.The downside - the room smelled of stale cigarette smoke even though the property has a non-smoking policy.
