I found this place on hotwire and booked it due to location. I was there with 6 friends for a women's weekend, and we were traveling light. The location is fabulous, between the Empress and Downtown. Very walk-able to everything. The rooms were quiet, comfortable and clean. Lots of light. Great amenities, including high end toiletries, bathrobes, a "rain shower"...

We were visiting Victoria on our Honeymoon in August 2016, and our stay at The Union Club of British Columbia was ideal. This historic hotel is part of a private club catering to an older generation, but the club's many amenities are available to hotel guests, including a couple bars, a beautiful library, current newspapers and magazines, a work-out center,...

We enjoyed 4 nights in this lovely private club, which opens its doors to guests. The rooms have been beautifully remodelled, and are small but very somfortable and inviting. The shower is glorious! Delicious hot breakfast is included. There is a library on the lower level with the world's papers and magazines. Two beautiful art exhibits while we were there....

Well located downtown this 1913 structure has been updated but has retained its "Olde " heritage decor. Service is friendly and pleasant from the front desk to the restaurant. Our renovated King suite was charming but the mattress on the sofa bed needed some work. Unfortunately there was no dinner served on a Sunday. A unique experience.

Wonderful accommodation with a very comfortable bed and an unexpected upgrade to a suite which was a great way to celebrate a special birthday. Breakfast is also excellent so this may well be our go to play when in Victoria.

On a recent business trip to Victoria, friends and members of the Union Club arranged my stay there. I found it to be a very quiet and comfortable place. I did not have time to experience the common areas. My room was pleasant although a trifle crowded. The bed was very comfortable. The halls were quiet. It was a pleasure...

Central location, extremely friendly and helpful staff, very clean, well-provisioned and comfortable rooms and good dining and lounge facilities. Don't be put off by their apparent obsession with a dress code, it's all very pragmatic although this is probably going to suit the older person.

My main reason for returning to the Union Club is that it offers a British-style venue, especially in its public rooms. I especially enjoy the very large reading room with its genteel atmosphere and ample selection of periodicals. As other establishments renovate and diminish the presentation of their British heritage, I appreciate the Union Club for its support of Canada’s...
