The Sylvia is classic! An excellent location on English Bay in the heart of Vancouver. We stayed there during the fireworks show and couldn't have asked for a more convenient hotel. If you are looking for flat screen TV's and top of the line bath toiletries, this is not the place for you. Rooms were very clean, but small by modern standards. Being from the Southeastern US, I am used to AC but just open the windows for a nice evening breeze. The staff was wonderful and it was an overall great experience. I will definitely stay there when I visit Vancouver again.
