My 8-year-old daughter and I decided to take an impromptu visit to Victoria. I had asked around for a referral on where to stay ( I’m very particular when traveling with my daughter ) and the IALP was the one name that came up time after time. I typically am leery independent hotels, They have a tendency of being run down and remotely located.
From the day before we arrived, I found the staff to be nothing but generous with insight on the city and local events. They are conveniently located by the clipper boat docks. The room was well furnished, up to date and had a great view. It’s unique architectural style was reminiscent of a classic design and not the mammoth box’s many hotels have gone to.
In the end, a hotel is just a building with a bunch of rooms. It was the staff that made this stay incredible. When my daughter and I were going for a walk to explore the city the manager gave her a package of hand warmers to help with the cold. Who does that anymore? They offered to make reservations at a local tea house for my daughter when I mentioned she wanted to go to one. This goes beyond customer service directly to a group of friendly people.
In a world of Airbnb’s, Uber and “corporate rewards programs” it was a refreshing find such an oasis.
I am certainly a customer for life.
