Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 3 December 2013

We reviewed several hotels in the Victoria inner harbor area and selected the Embassy Inn. The Tower holds a AAA Triple Diamond rating, the rooms were very nice, the staff were always accommodating, and the breakfast that comes included with the room price is a Great Deal.

The location, room rate, and free parking played an important part in our decision to stay at the Embassy Inn and we made the correct choice. We very much enjoyed our first visit to Victoria, BC, thanks to the Embassy Inn.

Room Tip: We recommend the rooms in the Tower building.

We recently stayed at the Embassy Inn in downtown Victoria as our usual place, the Best Western is no longer pet friendly. This was our first time at the Embassy and both my wife and I said "we'll be back here, for sure". We had a very nice supper at the restaurant and a "proper" (not just muffins and help yourself coffee) breakfast also at the restaurant. We also enjoyed courteous and friendly service from the staff and free Internet, all within walking distance of the IMAX and downtown shopping. We'll be back!

We recently spent 4 nights at this hotel visiting relatives in Victoria & Saanich. Great price for a family room 4th floor, corner, overlooking the Parliament Bldgs. Free parking and breakfast included in the price. The age of the hotel is showing but the tower rooms, in particular, the 4th floor facing south and east have interesting and perhaps the best views. Staff were friendly & professional. Hotel is located within walking distance to the heart of Victoria with a variety of restaurants, most tourist sites and shops.

Room Tip: Fourth floor family rooms facing east towards Parliament Bldgs and north towards the harbour provide...

We are continuing our refurbishing plans throughout the fall/winter season and look forward to your return visit.

For someone anticipating living on post-retirement income i n the foreseeable future, Embassy Inn represented excellent value for my travel dollar. The room was meticulously clean, the restaurant meals eere very good to excellent and all of the staff were friendly, helpful and professional. Perhaps I just lucked into off-season rates, but excellent value nonetheless. I am looking forward to my next stay in December.

Room Tip: If off season, call directly and ask if your room can be upgraded at no cost to include a kitchen.

We recently spent 2 nights at this hotel after needing to quickly find a place in Victoria. Great price on the internet, clean, friendly and very convenient location. Free parking and free breakfast are added perks. If you want a basic room without the frills of spas and gyms, I would highly recommend the Embassy Inn.

Can't say enough about this hotel which I have stayed in several times over several years. Have never been disappointed or let down always a great experience. This time had a friend with me who had never stayed here before and she stated it could not be better! Great clean rooms, great location, very friendly staff. Breakfast included was great also the dinner the night before. Great value for the money, rates very reasonable.

We booked in to the Embassy Inn early, not expecting our room to be ready. We were pleasantly surprised to be told by the man on reception that it wasn't a problem and that we could go in. Very comfortable bed, pillows and linen and everything was super clean. The free wi-fi was fast with no problems. We were on the 3rd floor overlooking the walkway between the two buildings. The hotel was very quiet and we enjoyed a good nights sleep. It is an excellent location and just minutes away from the waterfront.
Their restaurant served a delicious free breakfast with ample food plus the staff were very friendly and attentive.
We will be returning there.
