- they do not have A/C but fans because they care about the environment. - Koi Fish pond once upon arrival is beautiful - has Garden, Spa, and every night movies - Pool and Gym is nice for a hotel - price is average, but you are getting a full suite - has own gated parking

A great place to stay with kids. Modern, clean, centrally located. And includes a full kitchen and clothes washing machine. We booked through BC Ferries vacations and got an excellent rate in mid summer.

We have been vacationing in Victoria many times over the past 30 years. The Parkside is the best Hotel we've stayed in Victoria and highly recommend others to try it. Quality accommodations, service, and excellent location near Victoria Harbor and the Empress Hotel.

Parkside's public face -- its ground floor check-in space -- is dominated by water, which is appropriate for an historic island city built on the edge of the sea. Water rushes down man-made outdoor falls into koi ponds underfoot inside that you cross on stepping stones to move from one hotel tower to the next. A "green," LEED-targeting property, the... More

We booked 9 rooms for a business meeting. This reservation was in the works for 6 months prior to arrival, I thought everything was all set, but when we got there nothing was arranged as it was supposed to be. The Parkside had booked the wrong rooms, our rooms were not in the same wing as promised...And the list goes... More

My boyfriend and I were in Victoria for a wedding. We needed to check in early and check out. The staff was understanding and friendly. Although there is a fee, it is possible. We loved the room and the lobby. Very refreshing

Dirty rooms and bad customer service for a hotel of this level. At one point in my week long stay the housekeeping staff must have thought I had checked out because food (including a chocolate cupcake) and water left in the kitchen were taken and then they went through my travel papers (chocolate icing all over the papers). Had to... More
