This hotel is a nice quiet location right on English Bay and next to Stanley Park so really couldn't be better. Very helpful and friendly staff and spotlessly clean. Older traditional style of hotel close to restaurants and easy to get downtown.More

My 3-night stay in Sylvia was good. It is right across the English Bay, and very near the Stanley Park. It is also located near loads of restaurants and cheap eateries. It is also near public transport by bus.

West End
A hodgepodge of landscapes, the West End combines
verdant gardens and blocky modern architecture, with
Victorian bits and Edwardian bobs in between. It is a
