“Great Property”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2013

My wife and I were lucky enough to stay one night in one of the suites. Room was impeccable. view of the harbour and the legislative buildings, particularly at night, was breathtaking. And when our wake up call arrived, it was accompanied by lights in the bedroom gong on. A very nice touch!

Traveling on the Clipper into the country was great and a short walk to the hotel. Arriving early found our room was ready and got an upgrade due to occupancy. Thank you for the superior view of your great city. Would say to anyone looking for a great hotel in Victoria - this is it and a great bargin.

We've stayed at the Grand Pacific during the "Be a Tourist in Your Own Hometown" event in Victoria last weekend! The Hotel participated in the celebration by offering good deals on room and suite rates.We booked the Pacific View Suite with 2 Queen beds. We requested a higher floor and were very pleased to get an 8th floor suite. I am not sure how tall the building is :-) but in the elevator i've seen buttons for 10 floors only. So thumbs up to the personnel choosing this room for us! The suite had 2 private balconies. The washroom was gigantic with two sinks. The beds were outstanding, so was the bedding. The harbour view was 100 % panoramic! The children were extra fond of a duck pond at the Hotel entrance. Out youngest received a welcome gift (a toy, crayons and coloring pages along with a Butterfly Gardens coupon). Our sincere appreciation goes towards the amazing swimming pool (with actually warmer water than most of the swimmings pools are filled with), whirlpool, sauna and the huge fitness room with an incredible selection of exercise equipment. After we completed our lap swimming and the work-out we've got an apple each :-) from the basket (look for it on the fitness room's registration desk). The registration personnel also gives out towels and lockers. There is a kiddie pool too, so thoughtful of the Hotel. We were checked-in at 11 am because the previous guest luckily checked out very early on that morning. We also were able to store our luggage in the luggage room on our departure day which enabled us to explore Victoria and attractions until 5 pm with no heavy backpacks etc. The Express Bus to Swartz Bay (Ferry Terminal) stops around the corner, on the Legislative Assembly's side of the Government Street, which comes very handy. Overall a delightful experience. Given the promotiononal descount, i consider the stay a great value for the money. Great comfort! Great service! Great personnel! Will return. Looking forward to it.

Room Tip: The higher, the better. Harbourview is breathtaking.

The entire staff at the hotel, from the valet, front desk, lounge & restaurant are extremely helpful and friendly. The food we received as part of our conference was the best I've had in this type of setting. The hotel itself is beautifully decorated and very clean. I love staying here!

Room Tip: A view of the harbour is a definite plus.

Whenever I come to Victoria on a work-related trip, I always stay at the Grand Pacific. I've stayed at the Empress, Magnolia and others, but have always preferred the Grand Pacific. Not only the location is great (close to everything in downtown), but the hotel is very classy and posh, well-maintained and the rooms are great. Service is also friendly. I particularly enjoy the hot pool. The place is very quiet as the guests seem to be mostly business travelers. Parking is very convenient underground and I have often seen security people patrolling the underground parking lot at night. If I have one complaint, it's that they do not have computers with internet access available in the lobby for 24-hour use by hotel guests. They have internet and computers in their business center, but unfortunately the business center is open only during the day during regular business hours as far as I know.
The one main reason why I always stay there is because I always ask for a quiet room up on a higher floor and when they search me up they have that request already written into their computers from my previous stays at the hotel. So it seems that they keep a history of their guests and their specific requests. It always makes a guest feel special when the hotel already knows what your special requests are, and I think this is one thing I appreciate most about this hotel.
I do not know anything about their rates as my company always pays my hotel accommodation charges.
I would highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Get a room across the ocean if you can. They are probably more expensive then the ones at the back b...

Dear Guest,

Thank you for your kind comments about our close to it all location, your guestroom and our amenities. We are very proud of The Victoria Athletic Club which features a 25 metre lap pool, start of the art cardio equipment, a fully equipped weight room, a hot tub and a steam room.

Additionally it was a pleasure to read that you enjoyed your overall stay and that our staff took good care of you. We are blessed with an amazing group of people who truly enjoy hospitality and are dedicated to making each and every guest experience positive; the years of success we have had are predominately due to their efforts.

We appreciate your patronage and hope to have the pleasure of having you stay with us in the future.
