It’s no Cancun but Vancouver’s beaches attract visitors from all around the world.
And while it’s hard to do a true beach holiday here, there are plenty of Vancouver beach hotels to simulate the experience.
Let’s take a look at the best hotels near the beach in Vancouver.
The Best Vancouver Beach Hotels
Best Western Plus Sands – Best Budget Vancouver Beach Hotel
☆☆☆ | Area: West End | 1755 Davie St. | Distance from the beach: 200 metres (2 min. walk)
This gives you tons of great options for dining and drinking.
The hotel’s fantastic waterfront views and two on-site bars will ensure you receive plenty of bang for your buck for beachside accommodation.
If you’re planning a Vancouver itinerary on a budget this is also a fine choice, with rooms starting at $106.00 a night.
The Sylvia Hotel – Closest Vancouver Beach Hotel
☆☆☆ | Area: West End | 1154 Gilford St. | Distance to the beach: 50 metres (30 second walk)
The Sylvia Hotel Vancouver is a 120 room luxury hotel in a 1912 heritage building in Vancouver’s West End.
It’s so close English Bay Beach that you can hear the waves crashing while you read from your balcony, and it’s just a 5 min stroll along the Seawall from Stanley Park.
Nearby Denman, Davie, and Robson streets are full of Vancouver’s best restaurants. Sylvia’s Restaurant & Lounge is also one of Vancouver’s best patios.
Expect old fashioned but in a good way, great price-quality ratio, and one of the best pet friendly hotels in Vancouver.

HI Vancouver Jericho Beach – Best Hostel near Vancouver Beaches
☆ | Area: Point Grey | 1515 Discovery St | Distance from the beach: 250 metres (3 min. walk)
In quiet West Point Grey, you’ll find the famous HI Vancouver Jericho Hostel. The property is tucked away in Jericho Beach Park near the hip neighbourhood of Kitsilano, UBC and the massive Pacific Spirit Regional Park.
You can take advantage of the bicycle hire, and explore the local forest trails and the Westernmost section of the Seawall. Attractions such as Granville Island (15 min), Chinatown (30 min) and even Stanley Park (45 min) are well within reach by bike.
So you’ll have to use a bus service or bicycle to get around. But if you’re looking for a quiet beach holiday, looking to live local Vancouver-style, this is the perfect spot to lay your head.
* Only open from May 1st to September 30th.

The Sonder at Revival Hotel Vancouver is a boutique hotel that is located in Vancouver’s West End.
Unlike some other options on this list, the hotel offers a high-end experience with all the amenities one would expect from a luxury hotel.

English Bay Hotel – Best Budget Beachside Hotel in Vancouver
☆☆ | Area: West End | 1150 Denman St. | Distance to the beach: 400 metres (5 min. walk)
The English Bay Hotel is a budget beach hotel with beautiful views of the surrounding ocean and beachfront.
This all-suite hotel offers guests all of the comforts of home. You’ll be provided with a full kitchenette, complete with a refrigerator, stovetop and microwave.
Unfortunately, the hotel doesn’t feature the most modern decor but that’s why prices start at just $106.00, a very cheap price for downtown Vancouver – especially considering Vancouver’s top attractions are just around the corner.
How to Book the Best Beach Hotels in Vancouver
In building this Vancouver travel resource I’ve had the chance to partner with dozens of hotel booking providers.
In the end, I’ve chosen Priceline for the following reasons:
- They’re a publicly traded company with a $78 billion market cap for utmost trust
- They offer the greatest range of Vancouver hotels
- They offer book now pay later rooms which help tons with budgeting
- They’ve got a lowest price guarantee that helps you save money
Finally, if you book using the links in the article you’ll be helping me get one step closer to my dream: doing Vancouver Planner for a living.
We’re just two born and bred Vancouverites that want to share our city – but can’t hire writers or have $100,000 in weekly ad spend like Tripadvisor and Narcity.
Every booking helps, and we thank you enormously 🙏
