I booked this hotel on Hotwire after we had a canceled flight and needed to stay another night in Vancouver. I was initially a little bit disappointed when I saw the pictures of the exterior. They didn’t have an accessible room, and the bathroom in the room they gave us was tiny… I couldn’t even get my scooter into it.
Katrina and juan went out of their way to get me the one and only wheelchair accessible room on the property. It was great. Two queen beds that were a little bit lower so I could transfer into them. A huge bathroom so I could wheel right in. No roll in shower, but they supply a shower seat. It was a great room.
It’s an older hotel, so the walls are quite thin and you can hear people in the hall, but it wasn’t bothersome. The elevators are old and a little sketchy, but they are currently upgrading them.
We had happy hour and taco Tuesday in the restaurant. It was really reasonably priced And quite yummy. The house wine was good and $4.
I wasn’t familiar with this area of downtown, but it is right on English Bay, surrounded by delicious restaurants and funky little shops. The weather was horrible so we couldn’t see the water… But we knew it was there. The #6 bus stops right across the street and out front of the hotel. Takes you from Yaletown Canada line station.
It would be gorgeous in the summertime. Don’t let the exterior of this hotel defer you from Booking. It’s great. We would definitely stay here again less

Thank You for the review of the Best Western Plus Sands. I am glad you enjoyed your stay with us and found the hotel staff to be very friendly and able to accommodate your room needs. During our renovation we are adding a second accessible room. I will pass along your compliments to Katrina and Juan. We look forward to seeing you on your next trip to Vancouver and hopefully it is during the Summer this time.
