vancouver hotel

Jump to last reply

Hi

If I had to choose between the Sandman hotel on Davie or Sylvia hotel what would you suggest? Many Other hotels offer only double beds or are very expensive and we are 3 adults staying for 3 nights . I am with my 82 year old mom. I know both hotels are in good location and next to nice views (which is important to my mom) but the reviews are mixed. I would appreciate if one has been to both if they can advice me.

Many Thanks

    I stayed at the Sandman a couple of years ago, and it is certainly adequate INside... but the location isn't really grand, considering quite a walk from there to the center of things.

    I have no idea the prices you're talking when you say "very expensive"... but perhaps booking TWO rooms via Priceline.com(even at a 3-star, instead of a 4-star place) might limit expenses somewhat while also assuring enough sleeping space for everyone.

    Central Vancouver is small enough so that you can make any hotel location workable, and the 4-star spots tend to be in the better locations, for the most part. Central Vancouver is very walkable, and it might be worth taking a shot on the 4-star rooms at Priceline rates.

    If I were with my mom, and hoping for the very best hotel scenario at the very best price, I would book through Priceline and cross my fingers for something like the Renaissance, ideally with a water view on a high floor.

    If from that I randomly landed something like the Sheraton Wall Center, well that would be fine too (central location, among other things).

    Clarity: I'd be hoping for a base Priceline rate per room, per night, of $80 to $100, and a 2-room, 3-night bill of perhaps $700 (which still beats the rack rate for 3 nights in a single room at some of those places)

    The Sylvia Hotel might have "views"... but the best views in Vancouver are on the opposite side of downtown, and the spot isn't central enough to be my ideal. The Sandman is nearer to the downtown hubbub for sure, but even it demands a good hike on mostly flat surface to get anywhere.
