Stayed here with my family over the US memorial long weekend. We had a great stay. Will definitely stay again in the future. We booked the 1 bedroom suite as we had a party of 5. The suite was spacious and we had plenty of room. We had unit 313. It had been recently updated. Everything nicely appointed and in good shape. The room had 2 comfortable queens a living area with a pull out sofa, table with chairs and small kitchenette with microwave, full size fridge, stove and cutlery/dishes to use. There was also a small balcony. From our room we could see the legislative building and even the top of it lit up at night. Breakfast was good, clean and in a a spacious room. Location was great! So close to the inner harbor, we caught the carriage rides not far from the hotel. Parking was complimentary. All in all everything was great. Between the comfort, space, breakfast, location and parking, the hotel was of great value.

Great staff in all the departments. Many of the staff have been with the hotel for a decade or more. The hotel location is perfect for walking around James Bay area, visiting the Legislature (don't miss trying their dining room for a meal) and enjoying the beauty of downtown Victoria. Thanks for the great stays I've had at this wonderful hotel.

This is right around the corner from the Empress Hotel. Our rooms were on the 4th floor; high ceilings with a skylight. Comfortable beds and nice towels. Very quiet. Breakfast was a notch above the typical hotel breakfasts but no complaints.

Excellent location! Breakfast was fantastic…the chef and his team were constantly making sure the trays were full and the area kept spotless. It was nice to be able to do laundry during our enjoyable and relaxing stay in very clean rooms. Everyone was helpful and very courteous.

I booked this hotel because of its central location and reasonable price. I was expecting an older hotel and was very happy that it appeared to have been through a renovation recently. Most everything looked new and made our stay a very pleasant one. We were in a king bed room which we found to be very comfortable for two people. The only issue was the heating which we had to turn on and off to keep the room at a comfortable temperature . The bed was comfortable and the shower worked fine with lots of hot water. Breakfast was your standard continental buffet, not a lot of options but all we needed. The buffet are was very clean with someone cleaning the serving spoons whenever they were used. The area was quiet too.

We needed to stay down in vic after bad weather and didn’t feel like bunking with family so we ended up looking up a preferred hotel list from work and this was on the list. We’ve stayed at other places close by but this was amazing value for the money. I was a little unsure because it seemed a little dated in a few pics, the outside not toooo much to write home about, elevator a bit slow BUT We had a top floor corner room and once we figured out where the heater was(it was -9 outside) it was fantastic hahah. The staff are so kind and accommodating, the inclusion of a “continental” buffet breakfast was soo much more than we expected, the kitchen staff were right there to be helpful (and share a laugh at my lack of skill when I’m half asleep lol) and parking included to boot…. I think I’ve found my go-to crash pad!
