Victoria ligt in het uiterste zuidoosten van Vancouver Island. Met de veerboot is het maar 90 minuten varen naar het op het vasteland gelegen Vancouver. De stad is vooral bekend vanwege de prettige Britse sfeer. De mooi aangelegde parken, de Victoraanse gebouwen en het stijlvolle parlementsgebouw dragen hierin bij. Victoria leent zich uitstekend voor het maken van een walvisexcursie.
Wonderful service from start to finish! Gorgeous, newly renovated heritage hotel with super comfy beds/pillows. Loved the Afternnon tea...such a treat! Ideal location, close to shops and local restaurants. Would definetely stay again!
"Nickel and Dime at it's finest"
Had to pay extra for internet. If I wanted to listen to music on TV on demand it was $9.95 a day. I pay for convenience and when I have to go thru many steps to purchase internet in my room after paying hundreds of dollars a night to stay I'm not happy.
"A Wonderful Fairmont Hotel"
This stunning waterfront property was surrounded by beautiful landscaping. The dÃ©cor and ambience of the hotel was stylish and chic. Our room on the 5th floor was amazing, as was the lovely and good-sized bathroom. Behind a plaster frieze in front of the large windows, these two light-filled rooms overlooked the harbour. The dÃ©cor and styling of our rooms, like the rest of the hotel, was fabulous, with the palette of colours and other touches such as stylish wallpaper and tasteful furniture, combining to create what I classed as the perfect setting for a lovely stay. Again, the housekeeping staff were very helpful, providing a memory pillow and fresh milk soon after my request. These were the best rooms that we had during our visits at the five Fairmont properties on our tour.
"No Better Place To Stay In Victoria!"
If you're vacationing in Victoria, you have to stay at The Empress! Located on the perimeter of Victoria's Inner Harbour, this jewel is a historic masterpiece. The service you receive is exceptional; the front desk staff were nice enough to upgrade me to a spacious and recently renovated side room overlooking the harbour even though it was my first visit to a Fairmont property ever. The health club has a decent sized gym, sauna, and indoor lap pool. There was live music playing at the Q at the Empress bar, which added more to the colorful atmosphere. If you want free wi-fi, I recommend signing up for the Fairmont President's Club; it's free to do so. You're within walking distance to all of downtown and, if you're planning a trip to the Butchart Gardens, the coach picks up in front of the hotel. If you want to feel like you're living history, this is the place to stay.
We only stayed for one night and our experience was not good. I will begin with the positives: staff were very friendly and were very apologetic for the multiple things that went wrong during our stay. The building itself was very beautiful and the rooms were decorated in a tasteful and elegant manner. Amenities were also very good and we enjoyed a very good breakfast in the morning. Finally, parking was easy to find and ample. However, we are incredibly unsatisfied with our stay over all. Our bathroom door got stuck during the evening and so we spent an hour or so waiting as they tried to unlock/unstick the door. They eventually realized it was a much bigger job and we were forced to move rooms at 10pm. I did however have clothing in the bathroom and was told I would get back once theyâ€™d opened the door. I was yet to have my clothing returned to me by checkout time as they were still unable to get the door open. I was told that I would receive a text message to come back to the hotel and collect my clothing once the door was open. The new room we were then given was much smaller with no view (out of a very small window), however at this point we were only going to bed anyway. The next morning we were then locked out of this room after returning from breakfast as our key cards stopped working. We requested for the keys to be reprogrammed but these too failed to open our door. A staff member then accompanied us and a new key worked. It has now been 2 days since we checked out and I am still yet to receive my clothing back. Weâ€™ve stayed in Victoria before in a cheaper chain and I found that to be much more comfortable and reliable.
