I used to stay at Sandman every so often for arrivals and departures at YVR. (Then I discovered you could rent entire modern apartments by the day in downtown Vancouver or recently the new MC2 at Marine Drive Canada line station for about the same price per night. Alas the AirBnb I planned to booked was already reserved.) Stayed at...

We used the "Park Sleep and Fly" package for our out of country vacation travel. I wished I had booked the first night here instead of the other choice. I found the desk staff very helpful.

He also told me that the likeliness of me getting hit by another vehicle was high. He then mentioned that...
