Fairmont Empress Hotel

I had visited the Fairmont Empress when I visited Victoria well over a decade ago and always wanted to actually stay there. It certainly lived up to exceptions – the building is beautiful and the grounds have beautiful gardens. Being right across the street from the harbour and in the middle of the historic district means you are just steps away from all the attractions in Victoria. The service was friendly and helpful, I would certainly go back any time!

A fantastic, historic hotel, in a prime location. The rooms were very clean and the service we received was fantastic! The staff are very helpful, polite and professional. We will be going back as soon as we can!
Recently stayed at the famous Empress Fairmont in Victoria and was everything I’d hoped for. The rooms were definitely on the small side (especially when compared to other Fairmonts) but they were very well restored and comfortable and I felt as though the rooms suited the old Victorian style quaint feel of the property.
The staff were top notch at every turn, parking was $40/nt which is always a turn off, but that was literally the only negative of the stay. Very conveniently located in the harbour with fantastic views, and if you’re lucky enough to get a gold level room, you must enjoy the lounge from 4-7 and the again for morning breakfast. All included and the food and drinks were awesome for an inclusion.
If you’re into shopping there are some nice shops on the main floor or you’re just a few minutes walk from downtowns shops and restaurants.
Another must is high tea in the afternoon looking out at the view.
My first time but definitely not my last, I’m already booked to stay again next month.
