2 blocks to Stanley Park

In Vancouver's West End, Sylvia Hotel sits on the water, across from English Bay beach. Stanley Park, 2 blocks away, has over 16 miles (27 km) of nature trails, tennis courts, and a water park. The Granville Island Ferry is a 20-minute walk, and it's a 6-minute drive to Burrard Station.

Bistro, bar, restaurant

The heritage-listed building was home to the city's first cocktail bar, and guests can still enjoy drinks by the fireside in the Sylvia Lounge. Breakfast and brunch in the Bistro come with English Bay views, and the cozy Restaurant serves traditional favorites and contemporary classics for dinner.

Free WiFi and views

There's a distinctive layout in each of the 120 smoke-free guestrooms, and picturesque views of the courtyard or city. Free WiFi is available throughout, and some suites have the added bonus of a full kitchen for in-room dining.
