Sandman Hotel Vancouver City Centre

Vancouver, Canada

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.

We felt welcomed as soon as we entered the hotel. Sid, the Duty Manager provided outstanding service. He made the check in process very smooth and made sure he met all our needs. Our room had a nice city view and spacious beds! Thanks to Sid for a providing us a great experience at Sandman Vancouver Downtown.

The service and employees at the hotel is great. We had arrived late during the night and were super tires after a delayed flight but a gentleman named Sid at the reception made our life much easier during the check in and made sure we had everything we needed after our long trip….he was very welcoming and pleasant to deal with.

Our stay was met with many inconveniences, which inevitably made our overall stay disappointing. Had to replace key cards 2-3 times a day. No matter how far away they stayed from any "demagnetizing devices", they always failed to work. We asked other guests if they were experiencing the same key card problems, to which ALL answered yes. Only one elevator was in service, which caused the waiting line to be way too long. So we took the stairs... 10 flights up later, we found ourselves stuck in the stairwell... for the third time (isn't that a safety/fire hazard?). The pictures made the pool & gym amenities look great; however, it was a big letdown. I found hair in my bed when we first entered our room. Little things in the room were not working well (eg: the hairdryer). The staff was somewhat friendly. The location was good. I was really looking forward to finally having a "vacation" but left the hotel more exhausted than when I arrived. Would not recommend staying here, especially if your stay will be more than 1 day.
