The Sylvia is a classic hotel that is clean and convenient. Easy to get to, beautiful surrounding areas. Rooms are not large, but they are functional. We checked in after spending the day in very cold températures so we wanted a warm room and the staff provided extra heating for us.

I love the Sylvia. It is an iconic hotel at the edge of Stanley Park. The building is old, yes, but charming. The rooms, though basic, are clean and quiet

Loved: Size of king room- very large with great sitting area, available fridge, historic, ease of getting around inside and outside, very comfy bed, big closet, friendly staff, best location ever with easy walking to Stanley Park, good restaurants and Granville Island. We'll definitely stay again. Didn't like: Although not as glitzy as the newer hotels, this place has charm. The smell in the halls and lobby was a bit off-putting at first until we realized this is just the way these older building with character smell. Towels were thin and sparse but acceptable,- that is my old suggestion for improvement.
