    Great Location--Close to Everything

    The location couldn't be better. The hotel is right across the street from English Bay with beaches, walking and bike paths. Stanley Park is a short walk north and just south you'll find lots of cafe's, shopping and bus service. You will also see the British influence along the tree lined streets with beautiful gardens and cottages mixed in with large apartment complexes. Also, the hotel has a great dining room and bar overlooking the water. The room service prices were reasonable and service was quick. Lastly, the hotel is dog friendly with no additional deposit required.

    My stay fell between the Canada Day and US Independence day holidays and very warm summer weather, so it was extremely busy. There were so many people enjoying everything, but it made for a lot of noise. There is no actual air conditioning, just a portable unit and windows. I couldn't keep the windows open at night because of the noise. Also, if you open the curtains, you are visible to others in adjacent buildings. Next time I would prefer a room facing east. You won't see the water, but it should be quieter.

    Most courteous staff

    From my checking to my check out, from assisting with directions to helping with train service the staff was the best I have ever encountered. I extended my stay by two days because of the staff, location, and the historic vibe. Also very gracious housekeepers.

    the Sylvia is a classy, simple yet elegant place to stay. The location, a few minutes from Stanley Park, and across from the bay, is convenient and beautiful.

    Great Hotel

    The Sylvia Hotel is located right on English Bay. Great spot for watching the sunsets and people. The room was on the small side, but the bed was very comfortable. The linens were fresh and clean as was the tub/shower and sink. The Wifi worked well. The staff was friendly and knowledgable. This hotel is within walking distance to many shops, restaurants and services. The area seemed very quiet. We did not have a car, so we took a taxi from the airport ($35.00 CAD - plus tip.) Grandville Market - which is a must visit- is a short distance from the Hotel. About a 20 minute walk to the False Creek Ferry - then a short ferry ride to the Market. Stanley park is only a 20 minute walk from the hotel also. We would surly stay at the Sylvia again.

    No mini fridge in our room
