The Sylvia Hotel reviews

7.5 Good

We enjoyed our stay at The Sylvia immensely--the 100-year + hotel is showing it's age a bit, and minor repairs are needed to push it up a level (minor tile repair in the bathroom, for example), but it is in a marvelous location, and has a lot of Old World charm. The staff is friendly and competent, the parking is ample (although an extra charge), and the bar/restaurant is beautiful!

The breakfast in the hotel was not very good and the bar snacks were overpriced. Also the service in the bar and the restaurant was very slow.

I've stayed at the Sylvia many times over the years and have always loved this grand old lady of a hotel. They have a good staff, yes, but where the Sylvia excels is their location, right on English Bay and the amazing seawall.
