Host Hotels : Holiday Inn & Sandman


Our main host hotel at the Holiday Inn is technically sold out, but this is the time where rooms sometimes do become available as people release holds on rooms as their plans may have changed. It is always worth a call to them to see if a room is available under the group block before looking at other options!  The main host hotel is where our free shuttle runs from on the Monday beach day, and where the Saturday fetish photo tour starts from, and is where the single biggest group of VFW attendees will be staying!

To check the Holiday Inn, call 1-604-684-2151, and make sure to state that it is for the Vancouver Fetish Weekend group when inquiring about dates and prices. Scroll down on this page for more full info!


Option #1 – Sandman (recommended)

We have ALSO secured a discounted group rate at The Sandman, a higher end hotel just a few blocks away from our main host hotel at the Holiday Inn. The Sandman offers many higher-end amenities, such as ocean view balconies, and in-suite jacuzzis! Scroll down to the Sandman booking section for full details on how to book at this hotel. Located right in the heart of the bustling and kink-friendly Davie St gay village, it’s an easy 3-4 block to walk over to connect up with friends at the Holiday Inn, and make use of the shuttle services we have there for the Monday Beach trip & more.  PLEASE NOTE – there is NO CAB ACCESS to the Sandman on the Saturday of VFW as the area is closed to vehicle traffic for fireworks night at nearby beaches.  However it is an easy 1 1/2 block walk to catch a cab from there!

Option #2 – AirBnb

In the absence of being able to find an affordable hotel, we suggest you try to find an AirBnB! Scroll down to the AirBnB section on this page for booking links, and for a list of suggested neighbourhoods.


Call the hotel directly at 604-681-7263, or send in an email (listed below), making sure to quote the group name and/or group reservation number.

Group: Vancouver Fetish Weekend
Reservation # : 421381
Discount Booking Cutoff Date : June 25

The Sandman is our overflow and higher-end hotel option, offering rooms starting at C$304 / US$225 per night. All rooms have full kitchens, balconies with spectacular views of the city or ocean, indoor parking, access to the full-size 4th floor rooftop pool and more. Of particular interest will be the rooms with ensuite jacuzzi – perfect for unwinding after a long night of fetish partying! There are only a limited number of each type of room, so book early! Our three options include :

Queen Suite City View – CDN$304/night

King Suite Ocean View – CDN$369/night – King size bed, sofa pull out, seperate living room, balcony with panoramic ocean view

Jacuzzi Penthouse Studio – CDN$369/night – Queen size bed, jacuzzi in bedroom, balcony with panoramic city view

PLEASE NOTE – On the main night of VFW, Saturday July 27, it’s fireworks night, and the surrounding neighbourhood around the Sandman is closed to vehicle access from 7-11:30 PM, due to mass influx of people walking into the area to view the fireworks from the nearby beaches. This means you cannot get a cab directly to the hotel on this night. However it is only a short 1 1/2 block walk to the corner of Davie & Burrard, where you can easily hail a cab, as many people will be getting out of them on this corner, heading to the fireworks.

The hotels sell out FAST, and people always wait to long and end up looking for places to stay at the last minute. If this is you, we have some suggestions for you!

In mid-July, with heatwaves and amazing weather coursing across Vancouver, and excitement ramping up further every single day for Vancouver Fetish Weekend at the end of the month, we get overloaded hearing from many people who only just started looking for places to stay and discovering WE AREN’T KIDDING when we say Vancouver is in high demand in summer. Once the host hotels are SOLD OUT of our discount blocks, regular rooms jump by over $100/night, and commonly go for over $400/night, which is absolutely standard across Vancouver – IF you can even find a room! Most places will already be booked out, with rooms being scarce and hard to find at all!

At that point we highly suggest trying AirBnB – rates can be very reasonable, with amazing places to stay in downtown Vancouver, close to all the action of VFW! Head to the website, see what you can find, and make sure to refine your search to the areas we suggest.

We highly suggest staying in one of the following areas listed below. They are all downtown with access to everything you will want. Everywhere else is an outlying suburb of the city! Refine your AirBnB search to these Vancouver neighbourhoods – and good luck!

– downtown Vancouver
– Gastown
– Coal Harbour
– Yaletown
– Chinatown
– West End
(NOT West Vancouver, that is a whole other outlying suburb, nowhere near downtown!)


to book, making sure to enter ‘VFW‘ in the group code box, or call or email the hotel directly.

For most accurate results checking dates & prices, it is best to call the hotel direct at : 1-604-684-2151.

The Holiday Inn is our main and mid-range host hotel, offering rooms from C$259 / US$199 per night. The hotel has indoor parking, an indoor pool, gym, spa, restaurant & more.

We are pleased this year once again to offer a group discount rate at a host hotel, the Holiday Inn, located on the edge of the vibrant Davie Village neighbourhood of downtown Vancouver. Close to many shops, pubs, restaurants, nearby beaches and bike ride routes, and a short walk or cab ride to all our event venues.

Reserve a room – you can always cancel for 100% refund!

You can cancel your booking right up to 48 hours beforehand for a 100% refund so there is no risk if you don’t end up needing it – and you will want to lock in having the option, as Vancouver is EXTREMELY in demand for hotels in summer, with hotels across the city selling out well in advance and NO ROOMS BEING AVAILABLE ANYWHERE. Outside of our discounted block, prices jump by over $150 PER NIGHT if you miss out for just a regular run-of-the-mill hotel room, IF you can even find one. By comparison, average prices for bare bones hotel rooms in summer in Vancouver go for $400+/night. Compare to our discounted group options … and again … RESERVE YOUR ROOM ASAP! Don’t say we didn’t warn you!
