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.

Great location in downtown, near some great spots. Special mention to Sid on the front desk who went above and beyond to get us settled in and recommend spots for us to visit during our stay. He also gave us a room with a great view of the NHL stadium - highly recommend!

We just got here after a very long day of traveling, and Sid was absolutely amazing. He provided excellent customer service and was even able to give me a wonderful deal for the week of my stay, as well as a beautiful suite to stay in. We look forward to the rest of our trip! Thanks Sid 🤗
