We were here one night to explore Victoria. From the Empress, one can walk or take a water taxi to everything one wants to see. Great view from our room on the right floor overlooking the bay. The staff were friendly and helpful. Our room was well equipped and clean throughout. The king bed was very comfortable. The bathroom had everything one needs including bath robes and slippers. The only downside to staying on the 7th or 8th floor is it takes 2 elevators plus one to the garage. We were planning on afternoon high tea but at $75 per person we decided on a nice dinner instead. One cannot go wrong staying at a Fairmont hotel.
We stayed for five nights in the newly renovated wing of the Empress. Our suite was beautiful and included two bathrooms–totally fitting for our 50th Wedding Anniversary. Staff could not have been nicer and we thoroughly enjoyed the Club Lounge. Views over the harbor were outstanding and it was a great location.
The Fairmont Empress Hotel is located across from the harbor and offers Wi-Fi in public areas. Designed for comfort, guest rooms offer daily newspaper, in room safe, internet access – wireless (complimentary), indoor pool, massage, steam room, spa, pool (kids).
