We chose this hotel for the location, close to Stanley Park, the Aquarium, a Starbucks and great restaurants a block away, and a lovely beach out front where we watched an incredible sunset. Their policies, like leaving the key at the front desk, were the same that we'd encountered in Europe, and the front desk staff were friendly and made an effort to remember our names and get to know us. They gave us coupons for the Aquarium (and we loved the Aquarium!). We probably could have got away with using the street parking as there was a spot out front that we took as we checked in, and we could have stayed there until 9 am for sure (according to the street sign), possibly until 11 am since it said the spot was rated for 2 hours between 9 and 6. The window had a lovely view of a fountain by the office building next door, and looking to the left, we could see the bay and trees along the beach.
The room felt small compared to most American hotels, but there was a nice table with two comfortable chairs by the window. There was a tiny gap between the wood of the bathroom vanity and the floor. I didn't mind, but I could imagine my mother cringing as she likes everything to be modern and new. The bathroom was on the small side--comfortable for one person, a bit tight for two. On the plus side, the tub and sink did seem rather new, and were bright and clean. The wifi did not work well, so we didn't use it. It was just easier to use our phone as a mobile hotspot.
Recommended by a friend and worth it. Older hotel (loved actual keys!) that was quaint. If you expect a modern chain, you'll be disappointed. Checked in early and was pleased with the staff friendliness.
A concierge would be nice for recommendations. Staff gave sweeping/general recommendations about places to eat. The answer was "everything is good".
You can't beat the location. Staff is very friendly. Great views.
No A/C. No cross current. Rooms on two sides of the building get morning/afternoon direct sunlight that turns the rooms into an broiler. It was 90 degrees and we literarily could not stay in the room and rushed to get out of it as soon as possible.
The historic Sylvia Hotel was perfectly located in the west end neighborhood. The staff was absolutely delightful.
The Sylvia is historic and located right near Stanley Park. I loved the old world feel of it. I would take the stairs just to admire the quality of the workmanship.
Loatin and Old World Charm
Room was cold
because of bad weather outside we spent some pleasant times in the bar and entertained friends;informal,cosy and good service.
The location is wonderful and the ambiance of the place is great, and the food was very good.
Location and comfort of the room
Slightly faded ,lifts were old and creakey. Evidence of decay around the room
It's proximity to Stanley Park. The staff were friendly and courteous.
Excellent location and ambience.
character hotel, friendly service, outstanding location
restaurant a bit pricey
The location of the hotel was excellent by the seaside and the heritage and story of building interesting.
The rep. we talked to when we checked in, was not polite or especially trying to help or be friendly.
The location was perfect for us. Right across from the beach so we could go walk in the sand. Also we went to a concert in Stanley Park which we were able to walk to, it was closer than we had thought it would be! Also, great restaurants in the area were just a short walk away.
nothing, everything was great!
Ambiance above all, excellence of the service and concern for our comfort by staff, helpfulness in general, superb location, familiarity.
Traffic of the city, driving to location. Our room could have had better lighting, particularly in the bathroom, which was dark.
Staff were friendly. The room was clean and quiet. The bed was comfortable and the room temperature was adjustable without a lot of fan noise. The restaurant breakfast fare was basic but very good value. The breakfast I had included juice, coffee and a full breakfast for around eleven dollars - a good deal - especially when you are afforded a window seat with a great view of English Bay.
