I had high hopes for the Union Club based on the description and previous reviews.

I was disappointed with several things. The club setting meant that all the niceties of a hotel were not there including signs where the complementary breakfast was or door signs to let the maid service know that your room was ready for being made up. As a consequence, the maid service only cleaned up my room one of the two mornings. When I checked out I asked about it and they said "Thanks for bringing it to my attention" but didn't offer a discount for the inconvenience of having wet towels to use a second morning.

The maids didn't knock before entering--you'd just hear a key letting themselves in to drop off a phone book or other various item.

Additionally, the bedding was thread-bare and the sheets had several holes.

On the plus side, the location was great and the rates were reasonable compared to the Empress.

Bottom line, if you want the location, go for it, but don't expect to feel like you are taken care of as well as any other 3 star hotel.

This place is superbly located in the inner harbor, next to the Empress Hotel. It's a beautiful building, the rooms are well decorated, the beds are comfortable, and breakfast is tasty. From looking at their website, I realised this was a members club, though you don't have to be a member to stay there. There's a library, billiards room, bar, and activities. However, what I didn't know before arriving was that there is a dress code. You could walk through the lobby and up to your room in sneakers and jeans but you couldn't use the other rooms unless you were properly dressed. Perhaps I should have read some more on the website. I might not have stayed there. But given that most of the other hotels in Victoria near the inner harbor are much more expensive, and the more affordable hotels are a little further afield, the Union Club is a sensible choice. Just be aware of the policies.

We loved this hotel. The location is fantastic and the price is reasonable. We had a 2 room suite with great views of the harbor.
Whereas the furnishings are older, it just added to the charm of the place and it was quite comfortable. We had a wonderful dinner in their dining room. Played billiards in the evening. Just a delightful place to stay.
