    Amazing location by the English Bay

    The hotel was friendly, accommodating for Koko our Pom and we had a beautiful place to take her for walks steps from our hotel. The English Bay is especially gorgeous during sunsets. A radiant sky. Easily walk to many shops and restaurants. The room was clean.

    Great location!

    Marlen loved his stay at The Sylvia especially since he slept in his own bed!

    Great location

    I would have liked a “dog station”—access to drinking water, poop bags, a poop bag garbage and a gated place for dogs to poop. A water dish in the room would be a nice touch as well.

    Historic Downtown Vancouver on the beach

    Friendly, comfortable, old school property, located in the best part of downtown Vancouver. A water taxi ride away from Kitsilano dog beach and miles of walking opportunities.

    Lovely location and friendly staff.

    The Sylvia is a perfect hotel for staying with your furry family member(s). The room we had was basic but clean and comfortable. My dog was scared of the old elevator but the location was superb! Will stay there again.

    Wonderful location

    The Silvia is a grand old hotel in the West end of Vancouver, located right next to Stanley Park. The room was comfortable, parking was really inexpensive compared to the states, the staff was very nice. Love this place!

    The Sylvia staff are the best!

    We spent 4 nights at the Sylvia and the staff were all fantastic. We were even allowed to leave our dog in the room alone as long as we left a phone number where we could be reached (assuming of course that the dog is not destructive).
