We were a party of six & we spent 3 + 1 nights at the Sylvia on the recommendation of a friend who knows Vancouver well. On our first visit we all had rooms overlooking English Bay, not quite as good as it sounds since dense trees along the sea front obscure much of the view but you still get the atmosphere. The rooms are a bit old-fashioned but that is part of the charm - after rushing around for two weeks & staying at some anonymous so-called luxury hotels my wife sank into the armchair & said it's just like home! On our return visit we stayed in the new wing - nice room but a bit ordinary. Good bar & coffee shop/ terrace. It's a great location, next to the sea, an easy walk up to the lido & Stanley Park & down to the ferry for Granville Market. Easy to get to Robson St for shopping or bike hire. Friendly & efficient staff, e.g. looking puzzled & annoyed in the foyer, a voice from reception said "your wife's in the bar" - sorted! If you don't want the hotel breakfast there are lots of coffee bars very close. The Vancouver style is so laid-back as to be almost embalmed - the Sylvia is just short of that, relaxed but efficient. Go there.
