Three visits to the Victorian Hotel (2008, 2010 and 2012)
We spent a week in the lovely Victorian Hotel in Summer 2008 and thoroughly enjoyed the ambiance. The service was impeccable and the facilities charming. The reception area is quaint and cozy with a grand staircase entrance leading to the majority of rooms with lovely décor and beautiful hardwood floors. We stayed in a deluxe en-suite room accommodating two comfortable beds with ample space for our family.
Conveniently located to many of Vancouver’s must see sites (Stanley Park, Gastown, Granville Island). This is an excellent hotel that is a great alternative to the chain hotels. The hotel manager “Cecile” was our own personal concierge arranging many wonderful adventures.
Our 2nd visit in the Fall 2010 did not disappoint us. Our return trip was with our parents and we had requested a 1st floor room since stairs are difficult for them. It was quaint and accommodating and we had a 2nd floor deluxe room that overlooked Pender/Homer Streets. The management had made some major improvements since our first visit. We enjoyed luxurious marbled bathroom and beautifully decorated room and the most comfortable king size bed. As in the previous trip, the hotel manager welcomed us with open arms and it felt like home. We only stayed two days this time. They had converted a room off the lobby where they offered a continental style breakfast. The blueberries were fresh and yummy.
We ventured back a 3rd time to Vancouver in September 2012 with our sister and her childhood friend from Bury England. We spent six nights at the Victorian. The improvements had continued over the last two years. Again our accommodations were impeccable with a deluxe room on the 1st floor and those same wonderful linens and king size bed and toiletries. Our sister and friend had a room on the 2nd floor that had two standard beds and a quaint sitting area. This time we utilized the hotels bicycles. We rode from the hotel to and around Stanley Park then back to the hotel. This is a easy pedal path once your off the busy Pender Street and the park/city has wonderful scenery. We have found The Victorian Hotel to be conveniently located and reasonably priced.
We highly recommend this Hotel as a one of a kind experience and we keep coming back
to welcoming arms.
