We usually stay at the Empress but were curious about the new hotel in Oak Bay. The Hotel staff were great when checking in, even furnished our patio with outdoor tables and chairs- just for the asking. Usually in winter months they had planned to put them away. Great rooms. But I think they should have made the electrical plugs more convenient. (next time I'm packing an extension cord) The pub was too busy (gr...never did get a seat for the entire stay!) so we had our dinner and drinks in the sitting area of the lobby- Very nice and conveniently beside the buffet food. and gorgeous. The exercise room was small but fine enough for my daughter and I ...and all three of us enjoyed the pools. The Pools were nice and warm even on a chilly January day. It's supposed to be a non-smoking hotel - I was sad to see so many cigarette butts in the garden. Nice place for a change but i still love my Empress Hotel- and I can get into the Bengal for a nice drink.
