Sandman Signature Hotel
Three words both describe and embody The Sandman Signature Hotel and Resort at Vancouver Airport…Elegance…Relaxation…Comfort. These words are the standard by which the hotel measures everything on offer to its guests, from the extra large guest rooms, to the exceptional services from the friendly and dedicated staff, to the truly amazing food served in its restaurants. The Sandman is where both business and leisure travelers go to indulge themselves in the finest that the hotel industry has to offer.
Only minutes from the award winning Vancouver International Airport—recently voted the Best Airport in North America—visitors to the Sandman Hotel can make the short journey via the hotel’s complimentary shuttle bus service. The hotel is less than half an hour via road or light rail from the heart of downtown Vancouver, and within minutes of Richmond’s famour shopping districts and tourist attractions. Vancouver is also a gateway to the great North West region, with rail links to the resort towns of Whistler, Banff and Jasper.

The Sandman Signature Hotel and Resort Vancouver Airport is part of the Sandman Signature Resort chain. Each Sandman hotel strives to provide its guests with the ultimate in creature comforts from the moment they enter the gleaming, modern, stylish lobby, till the moment they check out. The 210-room Sandman Vancouver Airport fits easily into this philosophy. With guest rooms the size of what some hotels would call suites, and suites the size of what some people would call a nice apartment, it’s safe to say that guests of the Sandman won’t be feeling cramped or confined in their rooms. Take, as one example, the “standard” Signature Premiere Room. “Standard” seems downright inappropriate, because this room comes with two Queen beds and a minimum of 335 square feet of smoke-free living space. Signature Rooms also offer a seating area with an arm chair, ottoman and large colour television, while outside there’s a private balcony with table and chairs, where guests can enjoy panoramic views and breathtaking sunsets. Standard? We don’t think so!
Each of the Sandman Resort Hotel’s guest rooms is styled and furnished to the highest level of sophistication, elegance and comfort. As well as pillow-top mattresses and premium bedding, all rooms also offer the following features and amenities:
- Individual air conditioning and heating controls
- Complimentary tea and coffee making facilities
- Three-piece bathroom suites, with separate bath and shower
- Complimentary designer toiletries pack
- Floor to ceiling windows—all the better for enjoying those views

In addition to all the above, King Suites offer an amazing 650 square feet of living space, a 32-inch colour TV, a King bed, plus sofa bed and single bed, as well as a kithcenette with small fridge, microwave, and dishwasher.
For very special occasions, or if you just really want to spoil yourself, consider one of the Sandman Resort’s Penthouse Suites. Starting at 670 square feet, the facilities on offer are positively regal. They include a five-piece bathroom suite with Jacuzzi Soaker tub, no less than two balconies with the best views the hotel has to offer, separate living, sleeping and dining areas. The living room contains a plush sofa, chaise lounge and ottoman, while the full kitchen is fitted with large fridge freezer, microwave, dishwasher and stove-top oven.
The Sandman Resort Hotel Vancouver Airport has a range of facilities befitting a country club. All visitors have access to the indoor heated swimming pool and whirlpool, and the kids will go crazy for the 225-foot long water slide. Outdoors, there are no less than two pools (seasonal use). Besides the hotel’s fitness facility, guests can also visit the Steve Nash Sports Club (fee applies), or the seriously active can take to the indoor tennis courts (fee applies). Combined with the dazzling array of shopping centres, malls, sporting venues and tourist attractions nearby, everyone can be as busy as they choose to be.
Did anyone mention food?
After all the activity, you’re bound to have worked up an appetite. Once again, the Sandman Resort Hotel has ensured that its guests are spoiled for choice. Family favourites are available literally 24 hours per day. That old reliable, Denny’s Restaurant, is on site and open round the clock. From a stack of buttermilk pancakes with warm maple syrup for breakfast, to burgers, steaks and seafood for dinner, all tastes and appetites are catered for at Denny’s. But the offerings don’t stop there. At the Sandman, guests can also choose meals, snacks, coffee, drinks and other forms of refreshment from such exceptional eateries as Chop Steakhouse and Bar, the Shark Club Sports Bar and Grill or the Java Fresh Coffee Kiosk. And of course, because that’s just the way they are, the Sandman also invites guests to just relax in their rooms, if they so choose, and take advantage of the extensive room service menu on offer, available 24 hours per day.
