Another trip to Vancouver and it wouldn't be the same without another visit with our old friend the Sylvia Hotel. The old lady is showing some wrinkles - who wouldn't at that age - but as usual she was warm, welcoming, ultra-clean and nicely familiar. With English Bay, those ships at anchor, that stunning seafront walk all round Stanley Park, gorgeous sunsets, the Aquabus a short stroll away and the bustle of Denman Street right on the doorstep, we just love that location.
Over the years we have taken several tours around the area and the Sylvia has been on the pickup/drop off route every time which is a great bonus since it is not downtown. It's an ideal location to take a car-less vacation and still enjoy everything Vancouver has to offer. If you have a car, there is parking on site though.
The hotel offers free wi-fi in the rooms and a computer at reception - a modern old lady!
There are occasional minor hiccups - like really late housekeeping, cranky elevators - but this hotel has consistently given us good old-fashioned comfort, convenience and value for money during the past 14 years since we paid our first visit to Vancouver.
