Nice historic hotel across the road from the ocea.Posted Sep 7, 2014
Loved the history behind the hotel. We had a wonderful dinner at the hotel, very affordable and a lovely setting. We slept with the windows open, found the area very quiet. And yet, the beach across the street is a "very happening place".

Always charmingPosted Sep 6, 2014
The staff is great. The rooms are big. And the style feels more "grand" than old. A great base for exploring Vancouver.

A hotel the way they used to be....Posted Sep 5, 2014
Pros: The friendly ambiance of the staff was outstanding. The views out of the corner windows of our room made us appreciate the city of Vancouver more!
Cons: The bathroom could use some storage space, perhaps a small table in a corner or some shelves under the vanity area.
Location: It is right on Sunset Beach and next to Stanley Park. The people watching is amazing! Dozens of restaurants are within walking distance.
We arrived in Vancouver early in the morning, so we stored our luggage at the Sylvia, and discussed possibilities for our bonus time in town. The staff recommended an orientation tour for us, then took care of organizing our whale expedition for two days later. When we returned to the hotel that afternoon, our room was not ready, so they upgraded us to a suite that was prepared!

Sylvia Hotel - a Place of Grace and CharmPosted Sep 5, 2014
Pros: Vintage charm in the beautiful West End of Vancouver.
Cons: I ordered pan seared prawns and scallops from the dinner menu -- quite a mediocre dish and poor presentation. Their grilled salmon burger was great.
A warm welcome awaited us at the Sylvia Hotel. Our room had a pleasant view and all the amenities were to our liking. The staff was congenial and took interest in our activities. They were also very helpful with directions and other information.

Great LocationPosted Aug 24, 2014
Great location near Stanley Park and facing English Beach. It was surprisingly quiet for sleeping at night. Older hotel shows it age, but has some updates. Good value.

Sylvia hotel stayPosted Aug 6, 2014
Our stay at the Sylvia hotel was only for 1 night but it was very good. It is located very close to shops, restaurants and the English Bay beach. The room was clean. It was in the high 80 degrees when we were there and there was no airconditioner, but a fan was available. There was no mini fridge but an ice bucket and ice machine are available.
