We recently stayed at the sylvia hotel as we had a wedding to attend in stanley park, the sylvia was conveniently located and our room was great. The manager and the staff were very friendly and accomodating. We will stay at the sylvia hotel again.

I stayed at the Sylvia from July 28th to the 31st, 2012. The staff was excellent – very friendly and helpful and polite and just great customer service all around. It was my first time in B.C., so before I came (I am from Ontario) I would call the hotel periodically to ask about local attractions, the weather, etc. Everyone I talked to was, again, super helpful and polite and great.

Actually, I found that everything about the hotel was great. The restaurant, the room we stayed in, the location (right on the beach, walking distance to Stanley Park)….everything was perfect. I loved the old-school charm of the place too.

This is a traditional hoteland with a room overlooking English Bay we were well placed to enjoy Vancouver and recover from the flight. Pleasant, friendly and helpful staff. Breakfasts were a bit mass-produced.
Would definitely stay there again.

The location was great. It houses a fine restaurant. The staff were friendly and informative. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The building is quiet and the climate was great. Lots of Character. You could spend hours just watching the people and traffic.

Room Tip: Request a Bay side view.

Thank-you for your comments, location, location need I say more? I agree my work very hard to ensure that every guest enjoys their stay. People watching are one of my favorite things to do in the area, so much going on. Sit on a bench across the street or sit the lounge and watch Vancouver people do what they do best, be active. Hope to see you again soon.

It feel like an older European hotel. Lots of character, a great pub with Thursday night entertainment. Easy walking distance to other restaurants and sidewalk coffee cafes. The best part is - it's just down the way from the sea wall of Stanley Park; if you love to walk this is for you. If it's not raining you will see the most amazing sunsets over the ocean; there are many park benches on the beach to enjoy the end of the day

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the ocean. They have underground parking for a small fee.

Thank-you for writing, I could put your entire review in our brochure. This month the sun sets have been fantastic. Parking is $15.00 per night (1/2 of what other parking charges are in the area.) FYI
