Old world charm in a modern setting. Perfect location away from the commercial or entertainment districts of Vancouver. Cross the road and you’re on the seawall, for a beautiful walk or bike ride along the waterfront or around Stanley park. Inside...rooms are comfortable and clean. Bathrooms have been updated. Blackout curtains and excellent mattresses make for a good sleep. The restaurant and bar are welcoming and almost every table has a view of the bay... through huge windows. Outdoor patio seating is also available. The downsides are...expensive parking and unfortunately, the restaurant offers a rather bland and outdated menu. We were disappointed with the quality of food prep. Nevertheless... The Sylvia is our favourite all round hotel in Vancouver.

As always the best thing about this Sylvia is its location. located in the heart of downtown Vancouver it is right on the ocean and close to the beautiful Stanley park. The hotel itself is charming. the one thing that I would like to see is a complimentary breakfast and free parking. parking was $20 per night but they allowed us to keep our car parked there even after we checked out so we could walk Stanley park.

Proximity to the Seawall and Stanley Park. We enjoyed the restaurant and bar. The location of the hotel being beside local housing provides a much better feeling that a stay in a downtown location.
