Sylvia Hotel Vancouver

Stayed at the Sylvia for 3 nights in June. It was adequate but honestly expected more. It’s a tired hotel in desperate need of a facelift. No air conditioning in rooms so you need to be okay with heat. No screens on windows so if you left the window open you had wasps in your room within 5 minutes. Lots of traffic noise so don’t expect quiet. On the plus side really close to Stanley Park and the trails which is why we stayed there.

Enjoyed a great four night stay over a long weekend at the Sylvia. I had scouted this hotel on a previous visit having had several very positive recommendations. We were lucky that one of the largest double rooms was one of four not rented the day we arrived on a very early morning flight so we were able to occupy the room at 8am. To our surprise the suite consisted of a large room with twin Queen beds and another smaller room with a single bed both with windows. The rooms are not lavish in furnishings nor modern but very comfortable especially the beds. Also very quite all nights..not a sound from the hallway or outside.

From the receptionist at 7:30 on arrival to the waiters in the restaurant and bar, all were very friendly and helpful especially the senior citizen waitress at breakfast..a wonderful lady. The meals were so good we had two lunches and entertained guests at a dinner the night before departure in the lovely dining room overlooking Vancouver’s English Bay (and a great sunset). Likewise we returned three evening to the bar where we had snacks along with our drinks. Disappointed we were too late on the next visit to Vancouver a week ago to get into the Sylvia…recommendation: be sure to book well in advance.
