Excellent value. Hotel had charm and character. The room was most satisfactory. Very clean. Staff was friendly and helpful. Ideal location at English Bay and close to all of the areas we were frequenting. Will be staying here again.
I had to find a hotel to live in for 4 days while my apt was being cleaned after a flood. I have two dogs and wanted a restful place I could sleep deeply and overcome a lot of stress. This hotel gave me everything I needed and more. More? Well, I love history so found it amazing to learn more about this over 100 year old building and its evolving development. Many old pics adorn the walls and I spent a good hour looking at them all. Its a snoozy old timey hotel, but then I like that, I hate upscale bee hive places. I was lucky and had a view of the bay which was amazing. I did not turn the TV on once, I just had a nice glass of wine in front of the open curtain and watched sunsets and read my book. The bar downstairs is cosy and it seems to cater to the older crowd so this was awesome because I needed rest. A lovely heritage hotel. No pool or hot tub or all that stuff but a good stay and I will go there again if I get the chance. I found I took the stairs because the stone and oak stairwell was so lovely.
I stayed st the Sylvia for 2 nights in November. I liked my room and it is an excellent value for a hotel room near Stanley Park and the English Bay. It is not a luxury and mixer hotel but it fits the need for a short stay. The linen were clean as well as the bathroom. I recommend it. If you are allergic to pets, it may not be your best choice.
A heritage Boutique Hotel located across the street from Vancouver’s English Bay, next to Stanley Park and only minutes from downtown, the hotel offers character rooms with stunning views of the bay as well as a delicious on-site restaurant and lounge.
