If you are looking for an outstanding historic hotel in Canada, located a ferry trip from Seattle, the the Faimont Empress is the place to stay is the Empress.
The hotel is undergoing a multi-million dollar renovation, however you would never know except for the scafolding on the exterior and a closed portion of the floor. It is being done with the customers in mind.
The Bengal Room is an outstanding example of preservation of traditions with an Indian based buffet that is always kept fresh and current. The room has the decor of and old English parlor that is comfortable with old leather seating areas and attentive staff.
The location is central to walking areas, the ferry from Seattle and the sea plane.
I would highly recommend this hotel, just search sites like Tripadvisor for good rates.
Don't forget your passport, it is located in Canada.
