We booked our two nights there using RCI points. The amount of points we had to use seemed kind of high but we did it anyway. The outside of the Rosewood was torn up - digging up pipes or something so the outside appearance was not all that good. Once inside we felt better. The lobby, dining area and sitting room and breakfast and tea area are all nicely decorated with lots of art all around. Our room, up two floors of stairs, was actually nice. The room was almost overwhelmingly wallpapered with red flowers but I got used to it - including the high ceiling. The bathroom was a very pleasant surprise - it was huge with a huge soaking tub and a seperate glass enclosed shower - lots of room. There is a gas fireplace in the room which we could not figure out how to turn on the first night. The instructions we were given were incomplete. The second night it worked. The television is very small - probably less than 15" in a pleasant sitting area (couch and chair) - almost not visible from the bed across the room. They need to invest in some larger flat screen televisions. The staff was all young pleasant ladies who were helpful as they could be. There was a mandatory fee of $13 cdn per person per night for breakfast and afternoon tea. The breakfasts were quite nice served on china w/silver with an interesting variety. Afternoon tea was also nice with a sampling of teas and all this little sandwiches and desserts you might expect for the $13 fee - not bad though. Our particular room though not on the street was quite noisy. The firestation is only 1 block east and the firetrucks and aid cars are constantly leaving with full sirens throughout the night. The second night I used earplugs - better. We did have our window open for some air which probably didn't help any. There was no air conditioning. Yes, sometimes Victoria does get hot enough to require air conditioning. This could be a concern for summer visits. Overall the place is cute and I would stay there again. The location of the complex is only two blocks behind the Parliment building which is good. Yes, I recommend this place though it could use a few upgrades.
