Only stayed one night as my wife and I were in Victoria for the Tour de Victoria Gran Fondo in August. Location for the ride could not have been better being right on the start line. For tourists this means you are right next to the Legislature Building and across the street, a stone's throw, from the Washington ferry to Port Angeles. While we missed out on the Gran Fondo discount rate we lucked out with a harbour view room for which the erroneously quoted lower price was honoured by management without any muss or fuss. Nice! And a most appreciated service for me was being allowed to keep my expensive bike in the room with the hotel offering to provide a drop mat for the bike......a first! Most other hotels put up a big stink if you even suggest you want to keep a bike in the room. And with a large pool and whirlpool on site (and gym), it made for a nice post race refuge to soak some tired muscles after the race. Staff were helpful and efficient, rooms nice and comfortable and clean. On-site underground parking comes at an extra charge at $18 per night and wifi is a little slow, but it's complimentary. It's not the Fairmont Empress, but location is every bit as nice and I assume the price is much less. Who needs Afternoon Tea anyways.
