I thought this was a beautiful place to stay inside and out. I had a large room to myself. It was sparsely furnished with white walls and a clean bathroom with a big tub. Its also right across the street from the water and nice dogs everywhere. There is even food options and a coffee shop right there.

Wonderful neighborhood away from glitz and tall buildings. It was great fun staying at the Sylvia, an icon from Vancouver”s history, as described by a Vancouverite we met. English Bay beach and the miles-long pedestrian and bike paths (separate) are just across the street. So great seeing locals gathering on blankets on the beach just to watch the sunset and visit with each other. An older hotel, a bit rickety, and a lot of fun to visit! And then there’s the ivy (my wife said to add that and I agree!).
