Westin Bear Mountain Victoria

Stayed for one night with a room with a balcony over looking the golf course and ice rink , lovely view. Room and bed were very comfortable. We enjoyed an excellent breakfast in the morning in the restaurant . It is a bit remote but that is it’s charm with golf , swimming and soon tennis for a great vacation. There is also a shop and liquor store for your convenience.

We rented a suite and dined in the restaurant and bar. Our rooms were cold – 63 degrees when we got there. We used the thermostat to increase to 68 but after 5 hours it was 65. We called the front desk and they offered blankets. Like I want to walk around in a blanket. Housekeeping brought a space heater and showed me that we needed to put the thermostat way up to 86 to get it warmed to 68-70. Also, there was a place set up for free coffee, but nothing was ever there. No teas or coffee, ever, even though there was advertising. They claimed free parking but do not have enough spaces. We had to park over a block away, carting suitcases. Food was mediocre at best and was screwed up both times I ordered.

stayed two nights here while in town on business. was upgraded to a golf course view suite – very nice. Surroundings were great with all newish buildings and the golf courses and natural settings right there. However, if you’re looking for outside restaurants or even an interesting coffee shop, not too much around. Had to go outside to get to the gym, as it is in a separate building. A bit of a drive from anywhere else. On the plus side, off season rate provided very good value.

Victoria Marriott Inner Harbour

This hotel is located on a relatively quiet street close to downtown. I found it comfortable and clean. Shout out to guest services and housekeeping. Two things would have earned five bubbles on this review. My room had what appeared to be an older style heating unit complete with night “rattle”….and the towel rack placed in the tub surround was awkward. Otherwise a great stay. Thank you,

Very well located hotel in downtown Victoria – walking distance to everything. Good quality hotel with exceptionally friendly and helpful staff, particularly the bell staff and front desk folks. Well appointed rooms with everything you need. Very comfortable beds. Will put this place on my list for the next stay in Victoria.
Wife and I were here for 3 nights during an extended weekend around Vday.

It’s unfortunate that we did not arrive to Victoria by sea. We had to take a taxi from the airport. Public transport to the hotel from the airport is not convenient, the price for 2 people on the shuttle is almost as much as a taxi.

The check in process was wonderful, the guy at the desk was super friendly and helpful. Our room was beautiful, comfortable and quiet. The Bathroom amenities were great, I wish Marriott participate in programs such as “Make a Green Choice” for bonus points like SPG.

The hotel was centrally located. From the hotel we were able to walk to anywhere we needed around town. The bus to Butchart Gardens is also right around the corner of the hotel on Douglas. Bulk Barn, one of the reason why we came to BC is also a few blocks away on Yates. Lots of fantastic restaurant options around the hotel, such as Aura. Tea at the Empress is across the street and Royal BC museum is right next to that.

Overall it was a wonderful stay, we can’t wait to go back.

Regent Hotel Victoria

Lovely hotel, great location, friendly staff. Walking distance to great shopping and fun pubs. Room was ready when we arrived earlier than expected and we were allowed access immediately. Breakfast cafe has a great view of the water.

Our second stay at this hotel. We were upgraded to a 2 bedroom suite with views from every window, it was spectacular. We enjoyed every minute of our stay, this has become an annual event for us. Love that parking and breakfast is included. The location is perfect. We enjoy exploring downtown Victoria on foot, so much to see and do

The location was perfect and the bed was very comfortable. I would book here again! The room was comfortable and it was very quiet and peaceful. There was a good selection of restaurants in the vicinity too.

The rooms are wonderfully furnished and every comfort is provided. I highly recommend this hotel to anyone who comes to Victoria. The downtown location is perfect, the hotel is first class, and the waterside rooms offer a lovely views of harbor activities such as passing seaplanes, people in kayaks, as well as large and small boats. Lovely sunsets. Absolutely a great place. Spotlessly clean.

Oak Bay Beach Hotel

I booked a last minute weekend getaway to Victoria on a whim and contemplated which hotel I was going to stay at. Like many others, I initially thought I wanted to stay at the Fairmont that I had heard so much about, until my boss recommended I look into Oak Bay Beach. I was hesitant at first – it seemed to be a bit “off the grid” from downtown Victoria. But don’t let that sway your decision… it’s a quick 10 minute drive! The Oak Bay area is gorgeous – you’re RIGHT on the water, a quick walk to the marina, and in a beautiful neighbourhood (I ended up driving around for half an hour just looking at houses in the neighbourhood for fun!)

The hotel itself is paradise. It has a grand feeling to it the moment you walk in, and the staff is ridiculously welcoming, friendly and accommodating. The rooms were spacious, clean and very comfortable (I had a “residential view” room… I couldn’t justify the $125+ to upgrade to an ocean view). Room service is 24/7 and a good selection of food at any hour. The Snug pub is cute (great pub food and well-priced drinks), the Dining Room is nice/has a good menu as well. There’s a theatre on the property which looked like it would have been a fun time, but they weren’t playing any films at the time I was staying.

The amenities are AMAZING at this hotel. There is a (very well heated) pool and two hot tubs on the edge of the water. Sitting in the hot tub with a glass of wine… what else could you ask for?! I’d also recommend treating yourself to a spa treatment… I went for the half hour facial and I hadn’t felt that relaxed or refreshed in weeks.

Overall, I don’t have enough great things to say about this hotel and the people who work here. No disrespect to the Fairmont (I love Fairmont hotels, too) – but I’m so glad I ended up booking Oak Bay and that I now have a “go to” home away from home when I make future weekend getaways to Victoria.

Inn At Laurel Point Victoria

Last few months personally have been really really stressful. Still not sure what it is about Inn at Laurel Point that is different from everywhere else. They have that special something that I have very seldom found anywhere else. I now compare everywhere to Laurel Point and am still looking for one that measures up! Great food at reasonable prices, gorgeous views, attentive funny staff. Valet parking is always good. Close to downtown for my appointments, so just walk downtown. Lovely lovely spot.

The laurel point has caught up with the times. Since it’s on the other side of the harbour we’ve tended to forget about it over the years as it’s a bit further walk to downtown, plus the last time I stayed ( several years ago) it just felt a bit tired.

We just finished a short stay and I can certainly recommend it to fellow travellers. The rooms have been upgraded, the amenities refreshed, the aura restaurant has world class cuisine and the level of service is precise, timely and friendly.

Things are much closer than they seem too. A wonderful beautiful 8-10minute walk around Victoria’s stunning inner harbour and you are right in the thick of tourism central.

I’m happy we chose the laurel point on this visit and I’m sure we will stay there again.

We had a great stay. The room was clean and tidy. The pool was clean and well cared for. The location is great as well. It is located on a walking path the leads right past the parliament buildings to downtown (opposite direction goes toward the breakwater/fisherman’s wharf).
We booked this hotel through BC Ferries Vacations and had a great experience. Although there was no availability for this hotel listed on the BC Ferries website (as it was less than 48hrs from arrival), the BC Ferries agent was able to call the hotel and book us a room.
We arrived before check-in and asked if we were able to check in early. Unfortunately our room was unavailable but the friendly front desk staff asked if we would like to purchase an upgrade as it was Valentines Day and they still had suites available, they even offered to show us the room to let us decide. We ended up going with an upgrade to a studio suite (outer harbor view) which was beautiful.

Within walking distance to downtown. No view, but everything else is done very well. If you want to relax and take a step back in time then you will appreciate what the H.H. has to offer. Service was friendly and very well done! We would go back.
We have only stayed in the “Mikado” room. It was quiet, but there were only two other guest staying at the time. Plan to relax and don’t expect large flat screens and pools. They do have Wi-Fi, TV and Jacuzzi tubs in some rooms.

Magnolia Hotel Victoria BC

This was a beautiful hotel to stay at and it was very close to a number of good restaurants and shops. Was happy to stay here and would certainly stay here again. Enjoyed walking around the area as well.

We were celebrating a special occasion and booked the executive corner room it was lovely! Very clean, comfortable bed, fridge, wet bar, couch, nespresso machine, table and chairs, awesome! The staff at the Magnolia are top notch, very attentive and friendly. The continental breakfast was great, homemade yogurt, fruit, pastries, toast, hard boiled eggs etc. all you would want to start out your day. The hotel it self is in an excellent location downtown Victoria within walking distance to everything! I have stayed here a number of times and it is my number one choice in Victoria!

Hotel Rialto Victoria

Great historical hotel with a very warm and receptive staff. You get lots of little goodies like 10% off in the onsite wine store, free cheese platter in the restaurant and free coffee and pastry in the coffee shop. Rooms are a little small but I am not complaining just warning people as it is a historical building. It has a great location right in the middle of downtown Victoria. I will make the Hotel Rialto my go to place to stay in Victoria.

Hotel is ideally located for exploring Victoria. The stay was great, the staff were very pleasant and helpful. They managed to squeeze us into the Tapas restaurant on Valentine’s Day and we had a great meal.

We have stayed in hotels all over the world. The Hotel Rialto in Victoria, BC is now our favorite. We stayed there over the US Thanksgiving weekend 2016. What a wonderful experience. A great room, attentive staff, and a fine restaurant. The location is in downtown Victoria. We had our car but it was not needed because we were able to walk to restaurants and shopping is all around. Bravo, Hotel Rialto!

Great night in room 406. Thanks to Maureen’s attention to detail as it was my girlfriend’s birthday. Great 2 person soaker tub, awesome king size bed. We had brunch in the cafe, and the Benny’s were amazing. Great coffee and location close to everything downtown. Thanks!

Quiet little rooms, located right down town allowing easy access to just about everything. Very clean and great staff. Will def let others know about the great price for quality room. Fresh muffin next morning with rental

From driving your vehicle up to the valet, to the personnel at the front desk, the friendly professionalism of this staff begins and continues throughout your stay. A wonderful location with super comfy beds and clean updated suites. Would definitely recommend to all!

I stayed here as part of a conference I was attending. I loved the location in downtown Victoria, right across from the water. The room was very comfortable with lots of pillows! They served some cookies as part of our refreshment breaks at our conference that I am still thinking about (the protein cookies and the chocolate hazelnut cookies). So delicious. Every part of my stay was excellent. I cannot think of anything that I would change.

We used the pool every night. It’s a really big pool with lots of space for everyone to have fun. The hotel room was also good and spacious. We had a pretty good view on the 10th floor. We could see the Empress, the Royal BC Museum, part of the Legislature buildings, the water and had a small balcony too. I recommend visiting the Robert Bateman Gallery across the street – it’s excellent.

Fairmont Empress Hotel

We stayed at the Fairmont Empress for our honeymoon.
We were not disappointed. We were upgraded to a lovely suite! (Thanks Nathan)
The property is the best location in Victoria. it’s like the rest of the town was built around the hotel. Like all of the Fairmont properties it has that old historic charm to it yet with a modern twist. The Empress is known for their lovely afternoon high tea.
The property also features a large sized indoor pool and gym facility.
The room was beautiful we has a 2 room suite with separate lounge. The bed was amazing and the room was very fresh and modern.

We have loved to stay at the Empress for many years and have such good memories of bringing family and friends to stay and dine there. But several changes over the last year have completely changed our enjoyment of this hotel. For some strange reason the Bengal Lounge was closed — we always loved to go there when we stayed at the hotel. And today we took a day trip to Victoria to bring our granddaughter to tea for her birthday. The tea is very expensive but now there is no fruit to begin the tea. The service has been reduced. No tea was poured for us at all — we poured our own tea and milk, we had to remove a large dripping tea bag (not loose tea any longer) from the pot ourselve
