We started our vacation on Vancouver Island in Victoria and ended it there about 10 days later. This is a lovely hotel, very central, walking distance to the water, to main thoroughfares - Douglas, Government, etc - chock full of restaurants, bars, stores, coffee houses, pubs, and still walking distance, maybe about 10 minutes to Empress Hotel. We found it good value, very well maintained, very clean, and with an exceptionally nice staff. Our first time, 3 nights, we had a room on the 5th floor, one of the smaller ones, but made larger by some architectural design by its proximity to the elevator . We did not hear the elevator, just enjoyed the extra space. The only inconvenience was the tight space between the sink, which was outside of the bathroom, and the closet opposite the sink, with the bathroom door always in the way. A nice large TV gave us access to the FIFA and Wimbledon matches.There is a restaurant in the hotel - Stone's Throw - where we had a substantial breakfast and good service. When we checked out and reminded the young woman at the reception that we will be back for one more night, she offered us complimentary upgrade to a larger room with a kitchen. indeed, when we returned to Victoria after a fabulous excursion through the gorgeous Vancouver Island, we were taken to our larger suite on the 4th floor, a large spacious room with a full kitchen, a sitting area, and a bathroom with the sink inside and no conflict with the closet. So sorry we had only one night, as we were on our way back home. We had a rented car that we parked with the hotel, actually it was valet parking, as everything else efficient and done with a smile, for $13. Staying at this nice hotel enhanced our visit to Victoria. We hope to return one day to the land of the Pacific Ocean, and we know which hotel we will return to.
