Clean room, good sized, nicely furnished, great bathroom. Very good service- if I had to nitpick, valet fetching the car takes a bit(they said call 20 mins prior, they were serious) The room rate was very good, wouldn't hesitate to return.

Really enjoyed our stay here. Great location among many other things. Everyone at this hotel went out of their way to make our stay an enjoyable one. The desk staff are extremely cheerful, efficient and helpful. The rooms were immaculate and well kept, the furnishings are modern and the food at the restaurant is excellent. A couple of things I really liked included the heated floors in the bathroom, and the complimentary coffee and a baked good from the coffee shop as well as the complimentary charcuterie plate that came with our stay. Nothing negative to say about this downtown hotel. Recommended.

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 look forward to our next visit.

If you are looking for somewhere central with excellent customer service in both the hotel and bar. Look no further! The Rialto is a gem! It's well priced has modern bedrooms and huge bathrooms . The staff are really nice in every department. Worth trying the bar for the cocktails .

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!
