Lonely Planet review

Built in 1912, the ivy-covered Sylvia enjoys a prime location overlooking English Bay. Generations of guests keep coming back – many requesting the same room every year – for a dollop of old-world charm, plus a side order of first-name service. The rooms have a wide array of comfortable configurations, but best are the bedsit suites, which have kitchens and waterfront views.

If you don't have a room with a view, decamp to the lobby-level lounge to nurse a beer and watch the sun set over the beach.

Our independent authors have visited The Sylvia Hotel and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Downtown & West End.
