This is not a luxury one, but nice to stay. It is little off from downtown Victoria. You need a car or taxi to get to downtown. Outside looks old and building is shared with Liquor store, but inside is fairly clean.
I have stayed at this location several times and it has always been clean and consistent. We go over every april for an annual soccer tournament and its our first choice. It is a little outside of downtown so you require a car or to use public transit in order to get there.
The location was great. We are walkers so it was positioned perfectly for great food (Spinnakers, Canoe, 10 Acres Bistro), shopping (MEC, Eddie Bauer, Hatleys, Roots), and sites (harbor, Parliament, Musems). The rooms were spacious and comfortable. The hide-a-bed was not the most comfortable and the wifi was weak, but the overall experience was very good.
Our favorite hotel in Victoria. The 180 degree view of the harbor, the spacious rooms, the cordial staff, and being within walking distance to downtown, all combine to make this a great place to stay while visiting Victoria.
The room was very nice and big, clean, with a few Christmas and birthday decorations was very Festive and party ready. We had problems lighting the fireplace and keeping it lite. Would have also made another very nice feature with the snow in the background.
The view is speculator, after everyone left I just sat in a chair looking of the windows. I was very impressed that everyone that came took off their shoes but noticed as we cleaned up the next morning how dirty the carpets were and could use a good shampooing. Thank you and can’t wait till we stay again.
Overlooking Victoria’s beautiful inner harbour and the historic Parliament buildings, this hotel features a restaurant and on-site spa services. Free Wi-Fi and a flat-screen TV are provided in each guest room at Victoria Regent Waterfront Hotel & Suites. Select rooms offer full kitchen facilities.
Regent Hotel Victoria
1234 Wharf Street, Victoria, BC
Our suite was large and well equipped. The living room had a hide- a bed. there were two TV sets.The complimentary breakfast was excellent – there were choices for everyone’s taste. Hotel staff were all very helpful and personable.
I’ve stayed here a few times and I come back because it is predictably good. I especially liked that they proactively put me in a pet friendly room, having noticed that I travel with my dog based on past bookings. Parking the car so close it great, and the general atmosphere is quiet, which makes a nice change from many other hotels in the area. Its a quiet part of town, and this place is set away from the main bayside road which is good. Rooms are always comfortable, great beds, clean bathroom and good TV. Often get a room with a writing desk and chair which is really great for business emails in the evening.
I frequently stay at The Embassy when travelling to Victoria. It is clean, comfortable and the staff is always accommodating. My medical appointments mean a friend or relative accompanies me. This hotel is steps from the waterfront, the BC Museum and many restaurants, and convenient to walk to the down town core.

Was so comfy! Bed was amazing to sleep on, bathroom was huge and nice deep tub! Loved the delux king room. And breaky was good 🙂
Attentive staff: it was very windy that night and I was brought candles in case power went out.
This property was rich in history and had a homey feel… if you consider a miniature Downton Abbey “homey.” The rooms are all well appointed and each have their own individual charm. What I appreciated the most was that the staff were so accommodating, warm, and kind. Firstly Heather was incredible, she made sure all my finicky requests were made as I am celiac and needed help to figure out where I was and where I was going. Heather was very professional and patient with me and my lack of direction. Breakfast was also super delicious. As for dinner there is a collection of menus at the front desk from restaurants that will deliver to you if you don’t feel like leaving the grounds… YUM! Kenan took the time to talk to me about the history of the property and all of it’s notable occupants, he told me about the different rooms and the rich, soirted and beautiful past of the Inn, which as a solo traveller and a person in need of a distraction was a great way to pass the time. Kenan is wonderful and truly an asset to the property! Finally Randy, he was equally as kind and knowledgeable. He took the time to point me in the right direction everytime I got lost.. and like clockwork he was downstairs with my coffee order ready to go the moment I made it downstairs… even though his shift had not started yet. Furthermore, I was in Victoria for a not so happy reason and the Randy took the time to say hello everyone morning and night upon my return. Truly wonderful, scincere,considerate staff…. and based on that alone I will not stay anywhere else in Victoria as long as this property is still open and available. Also if I would have know that such a beautiful property existed I would have had my wedding here! The venue is ideal for a small (60 ish) person, intimate but luxurious wedding. Truly Magnificent!

850 Blanshard Street, Victoria, BC

We were upgraded upon arrival, to a beautiful corner room on the 6th floor, a perfect view of the parliament buildings all beautifully lit for Christmas. Enjoyed a lovely breakfast in the restaurant. All staff were very friendly and helpful. A few things needed attention, the in room fridge wasn’t working, the knife of cork screw was dirty, and a fan in the bathroom needed!!
All in all it was a lovely stay, and I look forward to returning sometime.
The location of the Magnolia makes it perfect for delicious restaurants, shopping, movies and the sea!
The room was spacious, cozy, large screen TV, huge bathtub, the best in room coffee maker I have
ever used. The service at front desk was high quality. Even dry cleaning is returned in less than 24 hours. I can hardly wait to return! This hotel is a must!❤️‼️
My husband and I spent two marvelous days at the Magnolia Hotel. We were upgraded to a room with a view of the harbor; much appreciated! The room itself was lovely and the gas fireplace made it very relaxing. The location is wonderful as it is right downtown and only two blocks from the harbor. The staff were very friendly and our breakfast (included in the price) was very good. Can’t wait to make a return visit!!
Magnolia Hotel Victoria BC
623 Courtney Street, Victoria, BC
I travelled off season, so I was able to get an excellent deal on a room, which enabled me to stay in Victoria for 5 lovely days. I took the first scheduled ferry of the day, which meant I was much too early for check-in. The man at the desk let me park the car in the lot and I was able to walk down Government Street and see the sights. The location is so convenient – situated in a quiet residential area, but close enough to shops and sights. The hotel restaurant is quite good. Breakfasts are delicious and a great value, and there are some very good dinner specials. My room was quite small, but perfect for traveling solo. The bed was really only big enough for one! The building is over 100 years old and charming. Yes, there are stairs to climb! I really didn’t mind them. I loved the radiator in the room, which kept me toasty on the chilly Autumn nights. There was free wifi in the rooms and free coffee and tea in the lobby. I will stay here again!
Outstanding location equal distance to downtown shopping / Government Street attractions, and the Dallas Rd. beaches/ waterfront and Beacon Hill park. Also less than 2 blocks away from the Emily Carr house.
The inn is an interesting historic building, with an antique-y feel. Slanted floors (I did not mind them – they add character imo!) and old- fashioned coil heaters, the radiant heat was perfect for this time of year.
I see lots of complaints among reviewers regarding the stairs. I actually LIKE those stairs as I view them as good exercise! Not all ‘older’ people require an elevator.
Convenient restaurant with excellent food. I was surprised at how good the food was as the restaurant is kind of hidden downstairs so we didn’t know what to expect. We didn’t try the pub as it sounded noisy but fortunately quieted down at an early-ish hour and we weren’t bothered by noise at all during the night.
The small double (petit) rooms are great value and we don’t mind the small size, but all of them should have a queen sized bed and a full bathroom with tub as well as shower. We were fortunate to be able to switch to a different room after the first night of our stay to get a room with a tub. But we had to move all our stuff, of course, and we did not have the info. up front through the booking site, or the website for the inn which we also checked, that the room we had booked did not have a tub. A glitch for sure, but the staff were very accommodating and put a concerted effort into switching us to one of the petit rooms that has a tub. It was a long wknd., so the place was busy and full but we really enjoyed the small room with the tub and would stay there again.
James Bay Inn Hotel
270 Government Street, Victoria, BC
Victoria heritage hotel boasts an on-site restaurant and a pub. Free Wi-Fi and a cable TV are featured in every guest room. Free parking is available. Select rooms at the James Bay Inn Hotel, Suites & Cottage include a kitchen, a balcony and garden views.
We will gladly stay at the Union Club again when we visit family in Victoria.
The positives include central location; a nicely-maintained historic building; fully updated rooms and bathrooms with fine linens, towels and bedding; excellent food and service; kind and courteous staff, and facilities which include a workout room and (in season) a rooftop terrace . There was tremendous value in a city where even a senior rate at a national flag budget hotel serving kids traveling soccer teams costs $90+ Canadian.
The only negative is parking. Overnight non-member guests need to park in the closest “parkade,”which is a short walk or drive: one block up and one block over. This would be a breeze in the summer but in the rain and sleet of December it was a pain. More complex logistics come from the fact that the parkade closes at 7:00 p.m. on some nights, so if you are out in the car for dinner, you will need a fob to enter the ramp. The club has only one fob, and to get it you must stop at the club, run in and run back to the car! Lastly, the system of accounting with the ramp involves paper vouchers, one per day (not per stay). It is not the easiest arrangement and we hope it can be improved.

My wife and I had the pleasure of staying at this hotel for 6 weeks. Only home on weekends. I cannot say enough about the staff and their efforts and eagerness to ensure our stay was a great one. I mean this from the porters, and especially the porters on down to the housekeeping staff. Registration was slick and easy and their pre- arrival email looking for an extra needs were followed through. I rarely give an excellent rating to anything but this hotel anf the staff deserve nothing less.
Restaurant will not be for everyone but so many choices nearby and should be persued.
The Inner Harbour/downtown view was gorgeous.
The king bed was very comfy and we both had great sleeps. 5 stars!!! Will be back next trip to Victoria.
Excellent customer service sets this place apart; from desk to parking attendants, management and restaurant staff, we have found everyone very friendly and competent. Each staff person I met seemed to genuinely enjoy his or her job, while being genuinely interested in guests’ comfort – genuinely!! (Did I say “genuinely” already?). The culture and mood of the place is sort of fantastical, kind of like a Hallmark Christmas movie. A most relaxing setting during a busy time of year.
I had the ‘seafood eggs benedict’ for breakfast at Aura Restaurant, and it is now on the top of my list for eggs benedict ANYWHERE! It’s a must try. Compliments to the chef.
The hotel is pet friendly, which is wonderful for those that have pets. We asked for a room away from pets, and they were more than happy to accommodate us.
