Wow. A beautiful hotel with Victorian charm. Fantastic service and staff who go above and beyond at every opportunity. Lots of staff around, so that this excellent service is always available. We had a King room. Lots of room, quiet A/C, fantastic bathtub and shower, lovely lotions and shampoos… I could go on and on. The library was a great spot to sit in a comfy chair and enjoy quality tea or coffee that is always available. The free breakfast was right up there with The Empress High tea. Multiple choices of great food and lots, with personal service.
One note of warning: no elevator and each floor involves 2 flights of stairs. But the willing staff carry your heavy suitcase. You MUST use their public washroom, and use the rose petal soaps they provide. I bought some after.
I heard staff locate some crackers for a client who was needing food to go with evening medications. They willingly gave me a tour of the garden. Helped us find a good place for evening snack, just a walk away (Tacofino). Changed our Empress Hotel High Tea reservation. They seem to live, to serve. This place is not inexpensive, but it’s worth every cent. Just be sure to allow time to take it all in. Oh, and they provide fresh cookies when you arrive and hors d’oeuvres from 4-6pm. We missed the latter, but I can assure you that they are likely fantastic.
