The location The old world charm The warmth and feel of it The staff were lovely The restaurant morning staff are stellar
Not much I did not like! Why change an institution, if not broke why fix it.
Located right on the front at English Bay, the hotel is an easy walk to both Stanley Park and downtown. The hotel is full of character but doesn't feel worn - facilities are all great. I'd definitely stay here again.
The Sylvia Hotel is 101 years old. She is in fantastic shape for her age and in one of the best settings in Vancouver, BC. She is very basic and elegant for her age.
Charming old-style hotel in beautiful, quiet setting in the heart of Vancouver! The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. I definitely hope to return!
The showerhead was weak and the room a bit small, but I wasn't there to spend time in the room :-)
The hotel is 1 block from the beach, shops, restaurants, and Stanley Park. Buses downtown (no. 5, C21, C23) are close. (You can buy a pass at Safeway or 7-eleven.) The staff are friendly and helpful. The lounge has live music and the restaurant has a great view but is a bit pricey.
The Sylvia was built in 1912 so the rooms are old, but renovated. The bathroom, beds, TV and appliances (if you have a kitchen) are modern but some rooms are a bit small and have odd closet spaces. I really like the character but some travellers may not.
This old fashioned hotel is somewhat quaint, it has not been completely modernised but it offers every service you might need. It is not situated right downtown but is not that far away and a walk along English Bay which it faces is very pleasant. Our room was large and comfortable, suitcase racks were provided.
The character of the building. The location was perfect, right opposite English bay, which due to an upgrade we had an excellent view of. The staff were great.
The lifts were a bit creaky. The wi-fi was very slow. Music not great in the bar.
friendly staff and ambience
furnishings a bit tired
The location and history of the Sylvia appeal to us. The staff were friendly and helpful. The restaurant and bar were very good. We upgraded to a suite and really enjoyed making use of the kitchen and separate living area.
The corridors and rooms were a bit dingy. I'd like to see someone who understands the history of the Sylvia improving the interiors without losing its character. Despite this slight reservation, we love the place (this was our third visit) and hope to be back again before too long.
Rooms were different bit in a good way. Views great, location good
The hotel which located close to Stanley Park, the beach, downtown, public transit and the airport. Staff was helpful and accommodating. Food was great.
Everything but location is the most important. Dining was excellent. Staff were very friendly and professional
Beautiful Old hotel with character. We have two little ones. They had a playpen/crib. They are located on english bay beach, so when the kids got up early morning, we could go and play on the beach, without the need to pack up first. We walked around in StanleyPark, went back for nap time, and then the park again. No need to drive/find parking (which is usually hard in the park). They had parking for our vehicle with Thule box on roofrack... Also tricky to find downtown. Excellent restaurant.
next to the beach and stanley park, lots of restaurants in the area. historical building
parking is not free
Close to the beach, the park and restaurants
Hotel itself has charm but very old and wifi didnt work well
I love this hotel largely because of its location, but for many other reasons as well, including a very good restaurant with great views of English Bay.
Food , room, view, can open windows, location, parking,staff, coffee in room
Weak wifi sometimes, elevator carpet dirty, cost, could have in mini refrigerator in non suite rooms
Location Huge room on 8th floor - but got the impression some of the lower-dpwn rooms were smaller
"didn't like' is a bit strong - but it is showing it's age - although that's part of the charm.
The location is perfect. Right across from the beach, with many great restaurants nearby. The restaurant at the hotel is also very good and the views can't be beat.
Gracious staff, lovely hotel with great history and architecture. On quiet side of Vancouver -- away from all the boring high rise hotels you can get in any city! We had a small kitchen that came in handy. Old world charm, in fitting with the city's British heritage. Food in restaurant excellent. Rooms well decorated and extremely clean. Parking excellent. Nice scale of hotel--we got personal attention and the desk clerks remembered out names!
No faults really. Perhaps carpeting in lobby need to be replaced? I am really searching here for something to criticize!
Location - perfect.
Restaurant and bar staff sometimes off-hand, even surly. 10pm close-down of the terrace was big disappointment. And a real shame that you no longer do afternoon tea - even toast with tea would be something, and hardly difficult.
The location in Engish Bay was very convenient with good access to everything a business traveller might need. The friendliness of the Sylvia Hotel staff was much appreciated, whether paying the bill, advising on transport to the airport, or checking for a mislaid cell phone.
Having to eat dinner sitting up to the bar because I arrived late, yet there were tables nearby being served drinks, why not meals?
I loved the location near Stanley Park. I loved the view from the lounge area. Waitress was very nice. Loved the charm and history of the hotel.
There was no air conditioning so it was a bit hot in the room but there was a fan. The price seemed a little high for an older hotel.
