We stayed at the Fairmont Empress for our honeymoon.
We were not disappointed. We were upgraded to a lovely suite! (Thanks Nathan)
The property is the best location in Victoria. it’s like the rest of the town was built around the hotel. Like all of the Fairmont properties it has that old historic charm to it yet with a modern twist. The Empress is known for their lovely afternoon high tea.
The property also features a large sized indoor pool and gym facility.
The room was beautiful we has a 2 room suite with separate lounge. The bed was amazing and the room was very fresh and modern.
We have loved to stay at the Empress for many years and have such good memories of bringing family and friends to stay and dine there. But several changes over the last year have completely changed our enjoyment of this hotel. For some strange reason the Bengal Lounge was closed — we always loved to go there when we stayed at the hotel. And today we took a day trip to Victoria to bring our granddaughter to tea for her birthday. The tea is very expensive but now there is no fruit to begin the tea. The service has been reduced. No tea was poured for us at all — we poured our own tea and milk, we had to remove a large dripping tea bag (not loose tea any longer) from the pot ourselve
