I've labored over this review for several days. I believe whatever I say would be an understatement. Staying at the Union Club is like motoring a Chris Craft Catalina around the Great Lakes. Staying at the Union Club is like sitting in the back of a Silver Cloud. It is several notches above the neighboring Empress, without the bustle of... More

Our only regret or this stay was that it wasn't longer! What a neat find. It is a small place with only a few rooms, converted to "public" use in the "90's. (It is still a private club) But the location is great (Next to the Empress hotel) and the styling is "classic" with much wood paneling. The Reading Room... More

Located across the street from the Empress Hotel and conveniently close to all the major sites in Victoria The Inn at the Union Club of BC was a great place to stay. Breakfast was excellent and staff was willing and helpful. Has that old English hotel look and though very clean could use some updating.

On August 9th my wife and I celebrated a very special anniversary in grand style by booking a newly renovated corner harbour view suite at the Union Club in Victoria, British Columbia. The suite was nicely updated with special decorating touches that made it really feel like a home away from home. The bathroom has been upgraded with a new... More

I have stayed at the Union Club before and when I needed to book a hotel in VIctoria for a few nights I decided to return. I appreciate the central location but also staying here gives the guest access to the dining room, which in my opinion offers some of the best food in Victoria. Breakfast is included and the... More

Wonderful location only two blocks from the Empress Hotel, Visitors Center, Harbor restaurants and entertainment and more. The view from the roof top patio at night is beautiful after a day of tours and walking. History surrounds you from lobby to library to quiet dining room. Previously a private gentlemen's club, it is now open to all adult guests. A... More

We just stayed here and have nothing but great things to say! The free breakfast was delicious, the servers in the dining room were lovely. Our favorite was Kaleema.

Wow! This place is located across the street from the Empress and overlooking the harbor from about 2 blocks away. It's also just a short walk from the ferry which we found very convenient. We absolutely loved the historic "old gentleman's club" charm of this place with the amazing woodwork throughout. The reading rooms were fantastic and we could have... More
