I had a beautiful partial view of the ocean and the support staff, cleaning and room service were warm, friendly and nice. Food was delicious! Checking in was a little unsupportive- definitely not a good choice for anyone with mobility issues- any one over 40 or wrangling children after a long journey/time change etc. Stairs at entry and no help getting luggage into hotel or up to room. Employee got into elevator with me with no offer to help or guide, actually made me a little nervous. Probably not his job to help me, but he could have offered to get someone or at least been friendlier. Front desk service was noncommittal at best. I think they are overworked with the weather improving-definitely had a brusque vibe. Requests for extended stay denied without apology or regret and no offers to help with any questions about other options, amenities of the hotel, or the area. Ended up being a pleasant stay after a bit of a rough landing.

The Sylvia is a Vancouver treasure and it’s location on English Bay is superb. A heritage building, it has been renovated over the years to keep the rooms modern and comfy but still within reach of the families who have stayed there for generations. Good food in the restaurants with gorgeous views and some outdoor seating.

Very nice landmark hotel. Accommodations and breakfast at the hotel were great. Close to Stanley park and beautiful English Bay. Enjoyed our visit. Would recommend renting an ebike and take an adventure to Granville Island and Stanley Park. Great location. Great bike trails.
