We booked a Harbor View room at the Sylvia Hotel on the advise of friends who stayed there often. It is in a great location, next to Stanley Park and on the bay. The hotel is very old, and there are few amenities (no AC, no fridge, no coffee (even in the lobby)), but there was free Wifi and the rooms are clean and comfortable and we could walk anywhere in the city and sit in the park with coffee in the morning. We didn't need the AC since the weather was perfect and cool at night, but that did mean we had to have our windows open at night, which we prefer anyway. There were no bugs.
Our only wish was to be on a higher floor, for which we would have paid additional. Being on the second floor meant that we got the smoke from smokers below our open windows, and we had a lot of light from the street lights. The traffic noise would have been less noticeable on a higher floor too.
Breakfast service was very, very slow, but once our order was placed the food came quickly.
Still, the location and price outweighed the noise, and we were happy to have stayed there.
