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.
"The Old Gal has had a Makeover!!!"
Stayed in the hotel 3 years ago and all I can say, it was not the usual standard of a Fairmont Hotel. My husband and I always use Fairmont Hotels and have been to quite a few so we do have expectations and the hotels consistently deliver to a very high standard. Unfortunately The Empress has been looking and feeling tired for a number of years so we were excited to see and experience the renovation and WOW we were not disappointed!! The rooms are beautifully appointed and are very similar to Hotel Vancouver or The Olympic in Seattle with slick bathrooms and roomy bedrooms with extremely comfortable beds. The usual flat-screen television and all the extra touches that make your stay a time to remember. Half of the hotel including the reception area, spa and pool are presently being renovated however it really doesn't take away from your stay and it gives you an excuse to come back once its all complete. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would like to thank the housekeeping team who are the friendliest and most helpful we've ever came across!!!
"Beautifully renovated! "
Our family came to the Empress for a family weekend. I was worried that the renovations would ruin the old charm. But they have done an amazing job of mixing modern luxury with the historical character. Service amazing as always.
"Perfection as always"
We brought our friends from Texas to enjoy the beauty and ambience of The Empress. After a lovely sitting of Afternoon Tea, we wandered the grounds enjoying the stunning views of the hotel at sunset. The evening was spent meeting new friends in the Gold Floor lounge. Thanks to all the staff for making this a wonderful, if not too short, holiday.
"Most disappointing - buyer beware!"
We were so looking forward to staying at this iconic property. First of all, the room we were given was to have been a recently remodelled room - but it was nothing to rave about.. Carpets looked worn. As the business we were on wrapped up early, we decided to check out one day early. We called early in the morning to say we would be checking out. In order to do that we were penalized $90.00 - I have never been penalized for checking out early! On top of that, the parking rate was excessive! So I caution you to understand all the extra fees, charges and possible penalties you may incur.
"Looking forward to a much needed renovation"
Stayed here a few times for business. Almost all of the Fairmont are great, but if any need a makeover (which it is getting) its this one. I was travelling with a co-worker from France who commented that walking the halls made him feel like he was in the Jack Nicholson movie "the shinning"... and he was right! Aside from that, the service is great and it has some beautiful historic elements to it. The location is great, especially for those travelling by seaplane from Vancouver.
