Sylvia Hotel Vancouver

The Sylvia Hotel Vancouver is one of the most historic hotels and best-kept secrets in the entire city. This designated heritage building is located just five minutes from Downtown and is the only hotel in Downtown Vancouver situated directly on a beach. This elegant and historic hotel was constructed in 1912 and has remained one of the most impressive hotels in the city of Vancouver ever since. The Sylvia Hotel on English Bay is the perfect getaway for families looking to stay close enough to the Downtown core to enjoy all of the attractions without traveling too far, but who also want to avoid the humdrum of tourist traffic. Essentially, if you want to stay close to Downtown, but enough outside of it to enjoy a tranquil and relaxing stay at your hotel, this would be a great option.

Sylvia’s Restaurant and Lounge has long been a favorite dining and drinking spot, not just for guests of the hotel, but also for residents and tourists of this part of the city. There is an outdoor patio where you can enjoy dining while looking out at the enchanted vistas of the English Bay. Enjoy a martini or specialty cocktail at Sylvia’s Bistro, or explore the surrounding streets and find some of the enviable cafes and restaurants that can be found in abundance in the area. The atmosphere is relaxed and inviting at the dining establishments, just as it is throughout the entire hotel. The Sylvia Hotel Vancouver has had nearly a century to perfect the art of pleasing its guests and keeping them returning for years. You will find that there is a high level of quality customer service and an intense attention to detail paid in everything that the accommodating hotel and concierge staff does. Many of the guests who stay at the hotel report a sense of feeling right at home, but without out all of the hassles and responsibilities.

There are several different options for accommodations at the Sylvia Hotel on English Bay. Depending on the size of your group and your needs, you can reserve a room with two double beds and striking views of the city, a room with a king or queen, and several other arrangements. Each of the guestrooms at the Sylvia is decorated and styled in such a way that the modern conveniences of the rooms meld seamlessly with the elegant décor, fine furnishings, and plush bedding. The bathrooms feature marble counter tops, deep tubs, fluffy towels and robes, and an assortment of special touches from sensitive soaps to complimentary coffee and cappuccino. Oftentimes this hotel will offer package deals or special discounts to large groups, whether families or businesses, and you may also be able to realize savings by bundling your hotel fare with your airline tickets and any rentals you may be looking into.

The spectacular location of the Sylvia Hotel Vancouver near many of the area beaches and the best things to do makes this accommodation one of the most enviable in town.
