It would need a major overhaul. We booked this hotel because it was a best western "PLUS". We have always had great experiences at the plus hotels. Our first room had a bunch of mould around the a/c unit. "My wife and kids have Asthma" Btw it would have not been good for anyone. They moved us to another room...

Hello Thank You for your response and stay at our hotel. I am sorry we could not provide the stay you were looking for. Our Front Desk staff tried very hard to accommodate all of your requests. I am sorry we did not exceed your expectations.

Excellent location for getting about the most beautiful parts of Vancouver. The bedroom was spacious, the beds comfortable and the facilities useful without being fussy The dining room is noisy and dark so we didn't eat there except for breakfast which was good. Lots of other good restaurants around. Some breakfast staff lacked experience. The reception staff were pleasant but...

We had ocean view from our room, walked to and along the seawall to get water taxi to Granville island (very nice sea-side walk), walked to Stanley Park and Vancouver Aquarium (even in the rain), used vancouvers transit (with help from front desk) to get to Capilano Suspension Bridge Park. Food was fantastic at the Park restaurant! Room was clean...

The Best Western Plus Sands Hotel, located at 1755 Davie Street, offers a clean, comfortable, and convenient location with English Bay not only in view but just a couple blocks away. Front desk staff were friendly, polite, and professional although they did mishandle the three requests made a week prior to arrival for an even number room with a water...

This Best Western is conveniently located by Stanley Park and walking distance to the beach. Bike rentals across the street. The room was very clean and the beds were comfortable. We would stay here again.

I've stayed here several times. This is the first time I've been there since all the rooms have been updated. The tired old look is gone. Each room now has a mini fridge (that cools ver well) and a microwave. Room is very comfortable. Staff is still friendly and helpful. It is a good place to stay, close to English...

Hard to beat the Best Western Sands. Restaurants, shops, Stanley Park, the beach, Denman Street, Davie Street and all they have to offer, and more, all right outside your door. And last year even whales right off thebeach.

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...

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...

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.
