We checked into the Empress for a one night stay “birthday celebration” before heading north on the Island. We reserved a King room on the club floor and were upgraded to a suite, nice! The check-in is at the club room entrance and we were given a tour and outline of the privileges, [complimentary breakfast, canapes and honor bar], prior to going up to our room. The view in the club room over-looks the spectacular harbour, [full window front]. The club also opens up to a beautiful patio with comfy seating and heat lamps, [it was closed late October when we were there but would be lovely in the summer time]. The suite was well appointed and hit all the notes. Highly recommended! The only short coming was that there were no deep soaker tubs. I had inquired and was advised that none of the new rooms have the tubs…showers only. Conversely, the showers are amazing…all walk-in marble…no nasty shower curtains, rain shower, A+. Overall the hotel is grand and opulent, the service and staff exceptional!
