We stayed three nights in a modest,older room facing the interior court yard. We chose this room for value and to avoid street noise. The public rooms on the main floor, library, reading room, dining room, and bar, are so fabulous that you will not want to spend any time in your own room ! The included breakfast was excellent...

The Union Club is Victoria's oldest (founded 1879) and pretty much only private members club. It has been home to every Premier of the Province and most business leaders since that time. It used to be a men only Club but now has a healthy mix of men and women members. Lots of new members are also bringing down the... More

We stayed in the King Suite which is on the top floor corner facing the empress and has an ocean view from the bathroom window, and it had such a welcoming smell when we walked in. We didn't care if it didn't have a view because it was like an apartment, and if we want to see the ocean we... More

Great place to stay! Very comfortable poster bed in reasonably sized room. Staff was friendly and very conveniently located to all the shopping and eateries you'll need. Old time elevator was neat to use.

I chose to see how the other half live and stayed in an inn far above my station in life. I almost feel unworthy to rate a place who's hallowed halls have sheltered royalty and the elite/old money families of Victoria. Normally the Union club does not allow non-members to hire the inn rooms. It may be, though I have... More

We stayed 1 night recently at the Union Club our second visit, this stay just as good as the first. If you love character than you'll enjoy your stay which is why we enjoy staying here. Love the wood panelling on the walls in the lobby, the original elevator and the canopy king bed (which was very comfy). The room... More

My husband and I and our friends, another couple with whom we often travel, spent two nights at this charming hotel in Victoria. With only 23 rooms this gentlemen's club provides a quiet elegance in a warm, cozy atmosphere. We loved its old fashioned charm……a large parlor room with comfortable sofas and chairs conducive to reading the many magazines and... More

We looked forward to our return to the Union Club after our stay 7 years ago when I proposed to my wife in a horse drawn carriage on our way to a wonderful evening and long weekend in Victoria. We had reserved the same 2nd floor corner suite overlooking the harbor. All was set for a wonderful celebration. It was... More

Victoria is a beautiful city for sight seeing on foot, shopping and good quality dinning. I had my first stay at the Union Club on September 8. It is a fine traditional late Victorian period land mark building a short walk from the many amenities of the city such as the Government street shopping and restaurants, The Empress hotel, the...
