Sylvia Hotel review Rate it

You really can't get much closer to the beach or Stanley Park than the Sylvia. Opened in 1913, this hotel started out as an apartment block, but was converted into a hotel in 1936 to help provide accommodation for merchant marine crews during the Depression. In 1954, the hotel opened the first cocktail bar in Vancouver, one that remains a local favourite today. Eight floors high, the Sylvia was once the tallest building in western Canada and is now listed and a city landmark, with Virginia vines growing up the light brick exterior. The rooms range from small singles to two-bed suites with kitchens.
