I stayed at the suite at Mermaid Wharf for most of March 2013. It was a lovely oasis in downtown Victoria. A real home away from home. I recommend this suite for anyone traveling to Victoria for business or pleasure. The only thing to be aware of, which I was told before I rented the suite, is that on Thursday - Saturday nights the Canoe Club next door can be a bit noisy. However, the Canoe Club is an excellent place to eat and drink, and to sit on the patio in summer. So if you can't beat 'em, join 'em!
