“Definitely will be coming back here!”
Reviewed 1 January 2017

Spent the weekend at this wonderful hotel. The location is great if you want to park the car and enjoy downtown Victoria. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The Veneto Lounge (at the hotel) is a great place to grab some food and drinks. Try the "spin the wheel" cocktail. The room was comfortable and modern. The heated floors in the bathroom were to die for. This has become our go to spot when visiting Victoria.

Room Tip: Some rooms have no views (face a terrace) so if that's important to you make sure you ask about...

The Hotel Rialto location was ultra-convenient, the staff friendly and helpful and the room just right. They think of several nice touches - I was able to use the gym, a few blocks away - a good offer. Also enjoyed a complimentary evening cheese tray. We had a great stay at the Rialto!

Room Tip: Choices are street view with possible noise, or overlook an interior courtyard - quieter. We chose t...

Nice location closer to more stores and restaurants compared to where most other hotels are. Property and room looked newly updated, clean and quiet. Friendly and helpful staff. Tapas bar downstairs is really tasty. Room had excellent WiFi, comfy bed and nice pillows, convenient kitchenette. Minor downsides: TV location was weird - difficult to watch, and no power outlets near bed or bedside tables.

The rooms are comfortable, they come with microwave, mini-fridge, coffee, ironing and board, and an umbrella too.

The bathroom has a heated floor which is really nice on a cold day.

WIFI is good and strong, and unlike other Canadian hotels, it's included.

The hotel doesn't have its own parking. You can use public parking a block away and its free on holidays or you can use the valet for about $22.00 per day.

The service was awesome and well informed on local events.

Thanks to everyone there.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that isn't facing Douglas St, Douglas is a bussy street and can be loud at times.

The location was great, walking distance to all the downtown area. Never thought of getting a cab once. The people at the front desk took care of everything for me. I felt like a person not a number. The tapas bar was fantastic. I tried the "take a spin" drink option and was happy every time.

Room Tip: They have rooms overlooking the street or quiet rooms on a small court yard.

This hotel staff is always friendly and inviting!
Rooms are modern updated and clean.
When you check in you're giving a voucher for a complementary cheese plate in the retro chic restaurant ( i recommend the Duck Poutine as well ) , and a complimentary coffee, and a muffin for the following morning in the cafe.

The hotel is located walking distance from China town, and a little longer walk to the harbor.

I travel often for work, and enjoy good service that is not overly corporately
complicated.
Hope you enjoy your stay.

Room Tip: All rooms are good!!

We had the most delicious breakfast here. The Garden Benny is so scrumptious! Always great food, good service and right in the heart of our beautiful City. You will find this special destination on Douglas Street right next to City Hall.
