The location of the hotel. The size, character, and cost of the room. The comfortable bed.
Not having a mini fridge in the room.
nice location on the beach
wifi is very bad.
The ambience is wonderful, staff are terrific, Christmas sing a long music in the lounge was a surprise bonus!
Huge room. Very clean. Lots of parking. Beat location in Vancouver. Excellent high pressure in shower - like a massage!
Bathtub is small 5'.
No extra charge for pets. Location, location, location! Great bar and restaurant with fantastic view. Wildlife! Saw a coyote go by!
Over-priced for the time of year in Vancouver, in relation to others with larger rooms. Wi-fi was iffy.
The pictures featured on the hotel's website as well as other traveling websites are not representative of this hotel. It is old and has a crummy feeling to it. Unless you get a room in the renovated section of the hotel, facing the harbour, I would not recommend it. Overall we were disappointed.
Retro, personal vibe and charm~ location is perfect on many levels. Stanley park, beach, walks, restaurants, and near downtown~
Heating system could not cope with the winter temperatures.
We couldn't stay longer.
Great location, friendly staff and the room was nice and clean.
Had to plug in a heater because the room was a bit chilly and the room has very limited plug-ins, but someone from the front desk very nicely brought us up a heater.
I have stayed at the Sylvia Hotel several times of many years and my experience is always excellent. It is located in the very best part of Vancouver. The front desk service is always tops. There bar and restaurant are first class and have a great view of English Bay across the street. Easy walk to multiple choices for a meal or great morning coffee.
Be aware that this hotel was built in the early 1920s. It has been refurbished and looks great but it is an older hotel so you have to like that feel. This shouldn't deter you at all because the remodeling is beautiful but you should know what you are getting into.
This hotel oozed charm; beds were comfortable and you cannot beat the location. I was surprised how quiet our stay was being it was Grey Cup weekend.
It was cold weather and the room temperature was difficult to control. Breakfast was expensive. Continental was 6 bucks for a small juice and English muffin. I added a side of ham for 4 bucks, coffee for 2.50, and an egg for 2.50. Tiny little breakie for almost 20 bucks. Very poor value.
Location on the beach, many unique restaurants nearby with shopping very accessible. Stanley Park and seawall steps away. Hotel has historic charm which makes it comfortable & casual. Restaurants offer a view of the beach & inlet/ocean. Reasonable room rates. My favourite place to stay in Vancouver. Would like to keep it a secret.
At lunch, my soup was served with a stale tasting, hard slice of bread with cheese on it. Breakfast was great.
All staff were most courteous, friendly & helpful. Ambiance. VIews from restaurant were wonderful.
Needed a small bar fridge in room. When compared to other hotels in the area, perhaps overpriced. But it was the ambiance we were going for!
Great value Superior location on English Bay. Block away from the Davie Street bus line. Old world charm We have stayed here on numerous occasions.
Free car park would be nice.
We liked the location near the ocean and also near downtown; the large comfortable room, the helpful staff at the check-in desk.
We had a grumpy waiter one time, but the next day our dining room staff were excellent.
holes in wall - rooms construction very run down. Furniture and comfort fine.
If your stay does not require a central downtown location, the Sylvia fills the bill for comfort in a wonderful ocean-side location, where you can actually open your window to hear the surf at night Magical!
Bedding did not smell clean
heating problems in many rooms, crowded underground parking lot, mediocre breakfast
food, service in both the bistro and dining room was great. And of course the wonderful views from every window downstairs; on this sunny, happy weekend!
I DID NOT GET the om type I booked months ago, through BOOKING.COM. i requestd a one bedroom, with kitchen, QUEEN suite. But on arrival, it turned out to be a KING bed.I Require Queen as I am disabled. King is too high to gret ino easily. Also VERY HARD to move around in bathroom and longer to walk to go to the bathroom, (from the further side). . I called the deak and was told "it is the last one"; so we had to stsy there or miss my brother's wedding! ON checkout, they told me I had been "upgraded" "to a King suite, but DID NOT TELL ME. i have aches and pains now, caused by this discomfort. IT IS NOT OK!
My room was cold, and the small electric heater not up to the task. But the staff kindly refunded my parking fees anyway as a courtesy. Besides that, I am a long-time fan of the Sylvia.
I liked the charm of the old hotel and the beautiful location. We enjoyed eating breakfast in the dining room looking out on English Bay and the proximity to Stanley Park. Also enjoyed having wine in the evening in the bar.
bathroom hair dryer was broken. Room kind of dated but it wasn't that important as we weren't in the room that much. I can't remember if we had a closet to hang up our clothes?
