Clearly the place to stay in Victoria. Located right at the harbour and close to all the fun and excitement of Victoria. Great restaurants, and all activities nearby. Beautiful old property with much of it updated to excellent current standards. Waterfront rooms are worth the price and the New Gold Lounge is about the most beautiful, sophisticated and enjoyable you will find anywhere….enjoy the magnificent harbour from inside the lounge or the exceptional terrace.
Afternoon tea was a treat….expensive but worth it both for the elegance and quality.
Skip dinner at their signature dining room,
Q. Very high prices in a brightly lit bare table environment with mediocre service and just OK food. Hope that they will improve this. It doesn’t fit the first class aspect of all else in the hotel
Wouldn’t stay anywhere else in Victoria. It is overall great.
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).
