Last June, my husband and I spent a couple of nights at the Victorian Hotel in Vancouver, British Columbia.
When looking for hotels, my eyes were drawn to this one because I loved the Victorian decoration. My husband was not so convinced because he usually prefers modern-style hotels, but since the location was perfect (close to everything we wanted to see), he agreed.
Even though we'd booked a standard room, there were no standard rooms available, so we were upgraded to a larger and very nice room. What did my husband say as we entered the room? "this is one of the best hotels we've been to!". He loved it, and so did I. The bed was extremely comfortable, and the furniture was very elegant. The bathroom was also very nice (any women concerned about carrying a hairdryer? you won't need it. There's one in each room).
I'd like to highlight that everything was very clean and looked new (actually, a part of the hotel was undergoing a remodelation process, and everything looked and smelled clean).
The staff was kind and helpful: they gave us directions, and answered to all our questions.
Worried about internet connection? in the Victorian Hotel there are 3 computers available, so you can surf on the net for free.
Also, there's coffee and hot tea available at the reception 24/7, and breakfast is included. Even though everything was good, I must say the breakfast was rather simple: youghurt, strawberries, milk, and cereals. Don't expect to find pastry or toasts, because there isn't any. All in all, that's our only (and minor) complaint. If we were to go back to Vancouver, we'd certainly go back to the Victorian hotel!
It's very recommendable! Hopefully, you'll enjoy your stay as much as we did.
