"Very Pretty Historic Hotel"
We stayed here for 4 nights in two rooms, although we ideally would have preferred interconnecting rooms, as we had booked, they are not guaranteed until you get there, which is a shame as we do pay before we go. Nevertheless Hannah on check in sorted us two rooms side by side which were fine, they didn't have harbour views, but a view of the street as the side. We did have breakfast at the hotel once and it was a grand affair, much like rest of the Hotel which is very pretty throughout. It is located right on the harbour front which means getting anywhere is super easy, and a lot of tours run from that area. Rooms were quite small but adequate, bathrooms were smaller that we would have expected. The spa was great and we used that and the indoor pool, staff were polite and courteous at all times, even though the Hotel was very busy during our stay. This is an old style hotel with an updated feel, and the recent renovations have really brought it up to date without losing it's heritage.
Our son and I stopped at the outdoor patio for an afternoon snack/refreshment. We had three drinks between us and some cactus style chips. The chips were very good. The drinks were good however the prices were high. Too high. It is the Empress so high prices are expected buy $15 for a single drink is a little much. Service was good.
Gold is the way to go if you want to enjoy the Empress. The Harbor View room was amazing, the patio where we had the evening canapÃ©s and breakfast felt like the best place to be in Victoria. The room was very nice, unfortunately the shower door handle was broken, we were surprised that something like that wouldn't have been fixed. The Nespresso machine in the room is a nice touch, but there should be a menu coming with the pods so you know what you're brewing. The concierge had written an email asking about our beverage preferences for the mini-fridge in our room, but it hadn't been filled upon our arrival and wasn't filled during our stay either. We did get some Perrier and juice from the lounge that we could take back to our room, although it felt kind of wrong to empty the fridge there. Thumbs up to the very nice young man who was sent to help us to take our luggage back to the underground parking, we wouldn't have been able to make it back to the car with all our stuff without him. Overall, it felt like a MUST to go to the Empress at least once in our lifetime, we might very well indulge and go back, it was such a wonderful experience.
"Not worth the high price."
The room was small, bathroom was tiny (two people couldn't fit in it), view of a garbage dump (they should have had sheers to block that view), no artwork on walls, etc. Just plain 'not worth it'! So many better hotels with much better prices out there.
This is a classic hotel in every respect. We were disappointed with the way the Breakfast value package was represented and we were not told about how the internet worked and that it was included with our particular package and I refuse to pay their daily rates for access.
