I stayed at the Hotel Grand Pacific for one night in early May, whilst in Victoria on business. The hotel is located directly across the street from the Inner Harbour, a two minute walk to the Victoria Clipper terminal, and 5 minutes at the most from the helicopter terminal at Odgen Point or Seaplane terminals on the Inner Harbour. I found the staff to be courteous and efficient. Having formerly been in hotel management, the first thing I look at when entering a hotel (both the lobby and the room) is cleanliness. Both measured up here. My room had a view out to the West (directly at the Days Inn located next door), and plenty of natural sunlight. The one complaint that I do have is with the complimentary high-speed internet access. It worked just fine the afternoon of my arrival, but was not working when I returned from Dinner that evening. When I called the front desk to inquire, I was told that "you must not have connected your computer properly, or your settings need to be changed". I assured the young lady that I knew how to plug in an Ethernet cable, and that my settings were correct. She continued to insist that the problem was on my end, and offered to send up a bellman to check and see that I knew what I was doing. No thanks. I gave up for almost three hours, but really needed access to my email, so I tried again later in the evening. Again no luck. I called the front desk again, and this time was informed that indeed their system was "down", but that their Tech would have it back up and running in "half an hour". 90 minutes later (1:00am) when it STILL wasn't working, I gave up. Needless to say, I wsn't able to complete some important work-related messaging. Aside from this nonsense, my stay was acceptable. I didn't try the hotel's restaurant or bar, as they seemed over-priced. There are PLENTY of other fine establishments in Victoria.
