Fabulous 8,8 From 779 reviews

Good 6,0
This was my 3rd stay at the Sylvia. Typically, I love this hotel for the location and the history. This time was a disappointment due to the renovations that are happening. I understand that this needs to be done to maintain a historic building like this, but it was too "in your face". The elevator was constanlty in use by the contractors and each floor had protective plastic on the carpet as it was essentially a construction zone. Had this been advertised at the time of booking I would likely have chosen elsewhere but notice only came upon check in via a note that was left in the rooms. Even the staff seemed to be bit less welcoming than usual. Stay away until all renos are complete!

Had a great time.
We arrived at the hotel early and were checked in right away. They gave us an upgrade at no extra charge. The staff were very friendly and always helpful. The location was great. You walk outside and only have to cross the road to be on the beach. We would not hesitate to stay at the Sylvia again.

Poor 2,0
Not so good...
I was in this beautiful city for a friend's birthday and the Sylvia is the ONLY place I stay, I love everything about this quaint hotel. However... this was not the type of stay this time and each morning I would point something else wrong...used condom wrapper under the bed, long, dark hairs on the floor in the bathroom, one morning the tv couldn't find the satellite and on my last morning only one washcloth and it was hit and miss. More miss. I realize the hotel is undergoing some needed transformations, but, this should not affect the clientele staying there now. On my morning of an early checkout, I asked the night manager for some kind of reduction... he said, he couldn't, he wasn't empowered??? What ??? The night manager isn't empowered? I didn't believe this for a minute and felt like it was a total brushoff. I love this hotel and trust this is not going to be a new change; if so, I will not be staying. Truly disappointed particularly when each morning the staff was aware but yet I still paid full fare???
