Is this a super fancy modern boutique hotel? It is not. If that's what you're looking for (and sometimes it is!) then you may want to look somewhere else. The Sylvia is not fancy, but it is, in my estimation, quite grand. It has history and charm, a gracious staff and rooms that are clean and comfortable. Yes, my door stuck a bit on the carpet and the room was rather small. But from the cozy bed I could see the autumn ivy leaves curling up the windowsill and faintly hear the bustle of the city below and it felt utterly timeless and classic. The history of the Sylvia is fascinating and the hotel seems to carry some magic.
On a more practical note- parking was easy, the staff stored my boyfriend's large surfboard easily, the room was clean, and the whole reservation process was easy-breezy. We got a very warm welcome from the night manager when we checked in late after a long day of driving and felt looked after throughout our stay. I can't wait to return.
