The hotel

Wonderfully located in the entertainment district of Vancouver, this is a comfortable, modern hotel offering a home-from-home base from which to explore the city. All attractions are within walking distance, including some great shops, bars and restaurants. After a busy day, it’s lovely to relax in the hotel’s atrium pool, or head to the fitness centre instead complete with Jacuzzi for reclining in. Sandman Hotel Vancouver City Centre is also home to the Shark Club Bar & Grill, one of the city’s hottest nightspots with big-screen TVs (30 of them at the last count!), a dance floor and an open-concept kitchen. A great place to kickback with a cocktail or a craft beer, feast on favourite dishes too, such as ribs and wings, whilst getting in the mood for a lively night out. Moxie’s Grill & Bar, also on-site, is another cool hang-out for dinner and cocktails.

Such an excellent location! Everything is within walking distance. Staff was amazing! Provided us with all that we needed. Even hung onto our bags while we enjoyed a world juniors game. I, highly, recommend

For attending Rogers Arena or BC Place, you can't be much closer. Concerts or Sports are a five minute walk away. The hotel is nice and clean, with restaurant and bar in-house. The elevators are a bit of a hassle for the prime time during coming and going for the events, but that withstanding, its a great place to stay.

I travelled to Vancouver on the October long weekend to visit my daughter in Vancouver. I chose the Sandman Hotel Vancouver City Center because of the location. The check-in was a breeze and the staff were very friendly. I had no issues with my room and my stay there was perfect. The room was well maintained and clean. I would definitely stay here… Read more

As others have said, this hotel is located perfectly for Rogers Arena and BC Place. We came for a hockey game and were able to walk there in under 5 minutes.

Other than that, it’s a pretty basic hotel so don’t expect 5-star anything but it was definitely ok for a quick stay. There’s a Moxies and sports bar attached so it’s tailored to fans perfectly. It’s really near to Robson and other cool areas so as an adult, I think it’s got a lot to offer location-wise. Our room was clean/good price, the bathroom is crowded and the heating is loud but overall it’s nice for a cheaper hotel right downtown. Read less
