The hotel on Davie street is very well located, near bus stops, Stanley Park and a great number of different restaurants, coffee places and shops. The staff is great, very helpful and allways with a smile. Room was quiet, spacious and comfortable. I would not hesitate in recommending this hotel for a stay in Vancouver.

The rooms are a good size with excellent beds, the check in staff is efficient and friendly and management treats repeat guests very well. We enjoyed the courtesy paper with our nicely cooked breakfast in...

Very friendly and helpful staff, including the front desk, the greeters/bellhop, and the cleaning staff! Room was nicely furnished, well maintained and very clean. Although it was a bit pricey for our budget, we enjoyed our stay very much and love the location close to Stanley Park and within walking distance of downtown Vancouver. We will definitely go there again.

We stayed here for two nights and had the third floor. The rooms were clean and comfortable. There is construction next door, but they only work during the day. One out of two elevators is not working so we had to wait several times or we used the steps. Close to the hop-on/ hop-off trolly or bus and walking distance...

Clean hotel with minimal amenities and very, very dated. It doesn't seem like any lobby, hallway renos have been done in many many years. No safe in rooms, VERY old elevators, no fan in bathroom, and very hard to control temperature in the room. Great location, comfy beds, but I am not sure we would stay here for that price...

This is the second time I have stayed at the Best Western Sands. The location is ideal - handy to public transport and located strategically close to Stanley Park and English Bay. It is a brief walk to many of the Stanley Park features - Seawall, Second Beach, Totem Poles and Aquarium. Even closer are the Amazing Laughing statutes and...

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.
