This hotel is all class. I was so impressed with the quality of service and the quality of the room. Everything about this hotel tells that the customer is important and valued. Wow, what a classy place.

This is a wonderful hotel located near the Fairmont Empress. It is equally luxurious with none of the presumption. Quite fine accomodations for the discriminating and those with finer taste. We loved it.

The area is safe and beautiful and you will be able to walk just about everywhere you will likely want to go except for Beuchart Gardens (17 miles outside the city) and Craigraddoch Castle (a walk that takes 25 minutes and is partially uphill).

You will not be disappointed.

We stayed here for 4 nights in May and we had an excellent experience. The rooms are clean, nicely decorated and spacious. Our rate included breakfast with was very good. The staff was very gracious. The bathroom was great including a separate shower and bathtub. The location is just perfect, with in walking distance to both the harbor and downtown. the only drawback was that it didn't have a pool but they give you access to a pool nearby if you ask for it.
Overall excellent experience, definitely recommend it.

I want to first start by saying I have never taken the time to write any kind of review. However with that being said , I have travelled quite extensively both domestically and abroad, and have never stayed anywhere quite like this. My wife and I arrived via ferry from Port Angeles , Washington. Victoria in itself is such a beautiful and friendly and safe city. Upon check in we were upgraded to diamond level for no apparent reason. The room was stunning with two poster bed, fireplace, wet bar 42" Plasma tv, work desk and chair, overlooking Inner Harbour, the marble bathroom had Aveda bath products bath bombs, razor shaving gel , separate soaker tub and glass shower stall, closet containged bathrobes, slippers umbrella ( nothing seemed to be overlooked) Everyday we came back to our room to fresh fruit, chocolate and toffee. The staff we so friendly we felt as if we lived there. The concierge was very helpful with places to eat and things to see, the bar was very nice and had a great selection of wine. Free continental breakfast wouldn't blow your mind, but it contained the basics and seeing as I'm not a huge breakfast lover it had all I needed, eggs, toast, bagels, fresh fruit, yorgurt, several juice selections, waffle press etc.
Overall we loved the hotel and its perfect location ( walking distance to everything in Inner Harbour) excellent staff and accomadations and have already recommended it to friends and will continue to do so. Looking forward to my next visit.

We stayed here for 5 nights as part of a trip around Canada & Alaska and this is by far the best hotel we stayed in. We had a room on the fifth floor, could see the sea (just!) and the Parliament building. The room was extremely comfortable, the complimentary continental breakfast was excellent - included waffles which is what I would have paid to have anywhere else! The location could not have been better, middle of downtown with everything easily accessible. Would so definitely stay here again.

Loved this hotel! The staff were friendly, room was elegant and had all the amenities you'd need. We had a great sleep on the 7th floor, very quiet. I looked at the fitness room and it looked adequate for a workout, small but very modern. The continental breakfast was just okay. With so many great spots nearby I'd skip the breakfast and eat elsewhere. Lots of kids at the hotel which suprised me as I picked this hotel since we weren't bringing the kids! Overall I'd definately return and choose it over other hotels in victoria that we've stayed at.

The reviews were right on, and i was not disappointed! We traveled by Seattle Clipper, and it was about a 15 min walk from the port. Its a pleasant walk, so if you traveled light, I would suggest it over a taxi.

When we arrived, our room was not ready, so we were politely asked to come back. I guess we were originally assigned a lower, 2nd floor room, but since we were polite to the clerk, she gave us a corner room on the 5th floor. The room we had was very spacious, very bright, and very comfortable. Plenty of plugs for our gadgets (ie: laptop, ipod, cellphone, etc.) and housekeeping gave us a welcome gift of bottled waters, chocolates and fruit, which was very nice as well.

The only drawback of our room was it was facing some Club. Granted, the Club was at the end of the street, but on Saturday night, the Club cranked the music til 2 or 3 am. If you are a light sleeper, ask for a room that is facing Government Street.

This place had a lot of freebies, which is very unusual for any hotel.... especialy a 4 star one! There was complimentary coffee and tea in the room (and the lobby), and free wifi in the room, and DSL cable (if your laptop isn't wifi ready). And, I do believe they accept pets, as a huge dog shared the elevator with me! :)

They had everything you'd expect for an upscale hotel: turn down service (with bedside chocolates), a great deep tub (and they provided a bath bomb soap too!), mending kit, vanity kit, shower cap, Aveda products.

Breakfast was very deluxe continental breakfast (ie: do you own waffles, scones, danish, cereal, meats, muffins, boiled egg, etc.). Some guests were trying to smuggle out muffins, and the staff were so friendly.. they OFFERED to saran wrap and put their food items in to-go boxes!

As a hotel guest, we got certain spa services at a discount. The Magnolia Spa was just ok. I thought they would have private lockers and showers, but its the disrobe in the massage room, and wear your street clothes when the treatment is done.

I have nothing negative to say, and would love to return! It was even nicer that I got a steal of a deal from hotwire. There's also no need to rent a car, unless you want to do the scenic drive. There's an express bus to Butchart Gardens, and you can also rent Vesnas/Mopeds for a few hours.

For the fitness people, they have an adequate work out room on the 2nd floor, with an infrared sauna. And they have a business center with a basic PC (Windows 7) but I did not see a printer.
