We stayed at Hotel Rialto for a couple nights while traveling through Vancouver Island. From the minute we were greeted at the front desk for check-in, everything about the hotel and staff was spot on. Both the lobby/lounge and rooms are very updated, modern, and well appointed.
The room itself was a bit smaller than I'm used to, but it felt very European. I like to spread out a bit and unpack, and there just wasn't as much room to do that as I like. Otherwise, the bed was very nice and very comfortable, and the bathroom was immaculate. This was a welcome change from a budget motel in Port Angeles we stayed at the previous two nights.
We enjoyed the coffee/pastries both mornings as well as the cheese tray next door. The bartender took pride in making something different for us that we both really liked after asking a couple questions (I guess that's one of their things).
Parking was a bit strange and was the only ding other than the room size. Parking on the street is free overnight, and we were able to find a close spot both nights. It would have been a problem if we weren't out and about during the day.
Overall we liked the Rialto and would stay here again.
