We were in downtown Victoria for a company Holiday party at the hotel and enjoyed all of it. The room was called a ‘city view’ and was lovely, we could see part of the inner harbour as well as the empress and parliament buildings. The king room was very spacious and well appointed. It was comfortable, quiet, relaxing and upscale enough to make us feel like we’d been at a resort. I think the hotel is undergoing renovations and they are turning out great! Great value when you can take advantage of one of their many special rates. Victoria’s best athletic club just happens to be downstairs and is available for hotel guests. Great location, staff and ambiance make for a lovely visit.
The room was very clean and well appointed. The bed was firm and very comfortable for my wife who has back issues and struggles in many hotel situations. The staff was very friendly at check in and were able to answer any questions we had. We also liked that they are trying to be more green and offered a small incentive for days that we chose not to use room service.
The only negative I could find was the meal we had in the restaurant. We were there over November 24th and they had an “American Thanksgiving” option. The meal was three courses… Salad, Entree and dessert. It took over 2 hours (with not many seated around us) The waiter was somewhat apologetic but not particularly attentive. The meal over all was average and the cost for two of us with tip was over 125.00. It is the only experience in our entire trip that we wish we had skipped.
However, this is a great hotel and with so many other things to offer, I still chose to rate it a 5/5 and would be happy to return. Just enjoy the many other fine eating establishments in the area that are more reasonably priced.
