Sylvia Hotel Vancouver

I had been wanting to stay at this hotel for several years, attracted by its oldish character and great location. The Sylvia is located in a really cool area of the city, across the street from the English Bay Beach and only a couple of blocks away from Stanley Park. I took advantage of that for some early morning jogs along the water. The hotel is alos around the block from the famous Denman St., one of the best walking neighbourhoods in Vancouver, in my opinion.

There aren’t many hotels left that have the character of the Sylvia. It is like walking back into the 1940s. Lots of wood paneling and historic photos of the hotel and area dot the walls. My room was comfortable with a flat screen t.v. The hotel bar is a cool place to have an evening drink, and the restaurant gave a great view of English Bay while eating breakfast (which was quite good, as well).

There is an underground parking garage, where I ditched the car for a couple of days. You’re actually within walking distance of downtown and Vancouver Harbour, but in a much quieter area than the main financial district where most of the hotels are located.

This hotel seems to have a great reputation and it’s been hard to get a reservation over the years whenever I tried. I overheard a couple at breakfast who fly in from England every year and only stay at the Sylvia. Now that’s an endorsement!

Vancouver is lucky that this hotel has survived the years.

The room my husband and I stayed in was spacious, well-appointed and clean. This hotel is right on English bay and on the lip of the gorgeous Stanley Park sea wall walk. The hotel has a nice cocktail lounge as well as a dining room – both with great views of the bay. One of Vancouver’s best kept secrets!
