What you know about Langley Hotels?

 

5 BEST Hotels in Langley:

1) Best Overall Hotel in Langley – Sandman Signature Langley Hotel:

Sandman has two hotels in Langley – ironically no more than 5 minutes from each other. (Actually it’s quite similar to Sandman Signature Vancouver Airport Hotel & Sandman Vancouver Airport Hotel being no more than 1 KM from each other in Richmond BC. Speaking of which, Sandman Signature Vancouver Airport is our #4 pick for the Best Hotels in Richmond, BC.) When booking Sandman Signature Langley Hotel please remember to check you’re booking the RIGHT Sandman Hotel in Langley, BC – as well that you’re going to the right sandman hotel. (Nothing more of a disappointing than to try and check in at the wrong hotel after a long drive.)

Sandman Signature Langley Hotel is located at 8828 201 St, Langley City, British Columbia V2Y 0C8 Canada while Sandman Hotel Langley is located at 8855 202 Street, Langley City, British Columbia V1M 2N9 Canada. As a point of how confusing the two can be, the Sandman Hotels official page for Sandman Signature Langley Hotel lists the Sandman Hotel Langley as the “Sandman Signature Langley Hotel Location” at time of writing. (Picture can be found here. I’ll be sending them an email shortly after to notify them of the discrepancies so their Langley hotel guests are not going to the wrong hotel if using their website. 😂)

This is one of six room types they have available at Sandman Signature Langley Hotel.

Best Time to Book at Sandman Signature Langley Hotel:

What can affect Langley Hotel Rates:

The prices at Sandman Signature Langley Hotel like other Langley hotels fluctuate by seasonality and occupancy. This is a function of travelers to Langley, BC – whether for business, or leisure – along with travelers to Burnaby, Coquitlam, Port Moody, Surrey, Pitt Meadows, and Vancouver.

While Langley, BC is quite a ways away from Vancouver, BC – it is not uncommon for some people to book a hotel in Langley, BC while intending to visit Vancouver, BC – because during the summer months in Vancouver, Vancouver hotels can be completely sold out on some days… while outrageously expensive throughout the summer. Even your 3* hotels will have daily rates of $300+ during the summer months! So, some savvy travelers will book a hotel in Langley, BC (which is often cheapest of Metro Vancouver cities – along with Surrey hotels, but honestly nobody wants to stay in Surrey if possible.) for their visit to Vancouver, BC. With this point, downtown Vancouver is just a 40 minutes drive to Sandman Signature Langley Hotel.

All this said, the BEST time to book at Sandman Signature Langley, BC if you’re able to determine your time of travel seasonally is during Spring (the weather is good, the peak period is not yet here, and the price is great) before the peak of cruise ship season in Vancouver… so anytime before mid-May. Needless to say booking during Winter is the cheapest with

Observed Average Seasonal Rates for Sandman Signature Langley Hotel:

Spring – $130 CAD/Night  (April 14-15)

Summer – $200 CAD/Night (July 8-9)

Fall – $130 CAD/Night (October 14-15)

Winter – $130 CAD/Night (December 9-10)

Weekend or Weekday Rates at Sandman Signature Langley Hotel:

There appears to be no variance between weekend or weekday rates as some hotels might impose (Many hotels especially in Asia offer cheaper rates during the weekends because they cater largely to corporate travelers who occupy the hotel during the weekdays and families looking for a Staycation during the weekends… these rates vary as much as 30%.)

The rates at Sandman Signature Langley Hotel do not fluctuate base on the days of booking it appears, but the availability of room types which Sandman Signature Langley Hotel has 6 different room types (Signature King & Signature Two Queens in the same price bucket, Signature Corporate King Suite, Signature Executive King Suite with Sofa Bed, Signature Loft King Suite, and Signature Jacuzzi King Room). The nice thing about Sandman hotels is their front desk clerks are often generous with room upgrades for frequent travelers.

Last Minute Rates at Sandman Signature Langley Hotel:

Of course, depending on their availability, prices will increase even for the standard room rates at Sandman Signature Langley Hotel if occupancy rate is high – therefore, it might be advisable to book earlier than later while plenty of rooms remain to get the BEST rate at Sandman Signature Langley Hotel – before their room availability dwindles and prices increase. Sandman Signature Langley Hotel DOES NOT appear to offer any last minute booking deals (regardless of availability) therefore, there is no benefit leaving your booking to the last minute at Sandman Signature Langley Hotel. (as some other hotels may offer discounts booking 7 days before travel if they have many rooms available… this does not apply at Sandman Signature Langley Hotel base on our analysis.)

The BEST time to Book at Sandman Signature Langley Hotel: (And getting a good deal at Sandman Signature Langley Hotel)

The best time (in our opinion) for booking at Sandman Signature Langley Hotel is as soon as possible using Trip.com (for additional rewards and member special discounts). The cheapest rates are non-refundable therefore, book only when you’re certain of your plans. Refundable rates are available – ideally if you’re unsure of your plans and would like a refundable rate, book directly through the Sandman Signature Langley hotel for less hassle. (Else you would have to cancel through your OTA than the hotel – depending on the OTA, it might be a simple click or you might have to call the call centre… and it is more likely the front desk/hotel reservations to be more easily contactable than an OTA call centre – though Trip.com is pretty quick, still direct is advisable.)

 

Best Ways to Book at Sandman Signature Langley Hotel:

Sandman Hotels is a BC-born hotel chain featuring several locations throughout British Columbia, Canada, USA (Texas), and UK (London Airport Hotel). Their loyalty program is a stamp card ‘lucky 13’ which gives you the 13th night free for every 12 nights.

This said, there are no additional perks to their loyalty program and staying 12 nights might be difficult unless you travel frequently in British Columbia. Their hotels are consistent and comfortable; what you would expect for a 3* hotel – catering largely to corporate or family travel – emphasizing value and consistency. Sadly, their loyalty program is lacking and while your stays are logged in their system – it doesn’t matter whether you book directly or online.

For this reason, we would recommend booking Sandman Signature Langley Hotel through an online travel agency like Trip.com.

You will get a great rate with Trip.com (additional 8% discount for new customers using coupon code ‘ ‘) because of insider/member rate along with Trip Coins and Trip.com Status nights which will allow you to earn more Trip Coins. As an up and coming online travel agency, we especially recommend Trip.com because of their customer service and competitive nature striving to offer the best rates to their customers (as you might expect, with a new business – they want to compete decisively with the established OTAs – so we find that Trip.com seems to subsidize some hotel rates for members… getting you cheaper nightly rates booking on Trip.com than you would elsewhere.) Their customer service is also reliable. The business Trip.com is a subsidiary of a listed company CTrip with a reliable track record and hundreds of employees – so you can be sure your booking is secured as can be.

Alternatively, we’d recommend booking through Expedia.ca for similar reasons to Trip.com (loyalty program that applies to ANY hotel, and gaining status nights for more benefits at the online travel agency) OR Hotels.com which will provide you 1 free night for every 10 nights (instead of 13 nights at Sandman’s ‘lucky 13’) which is applicable on any hotel.

Overall for value and loyalty program, we’d recommend Trip.com however.
