My husband and I stayed in this hotel towards the beginning of June and had a very pleasant stay. We had a room on one of the higher floors that had an amazing view of the harbour, mountains and parliament buildings. As previous reviewers have mentioned the hotel does not have air conditioning and it was warm during our stay as the weather was good. There were two electric fans in the room and a breeze from the open windows so it wasn't too uncomfortable. The noise from the street wasn't too bad either.
The location of the hotel is perfect for exploring the town and the staff were incredibly helpful and knowledgeable.
We had no issues with the parking - we didn't actually use the car at all during our stay so it was parked in the hotel car park next to the main entrance for two days with no issues (we did remove all of our belongings from the car though, so there was nothing to be stolen).
The hotel breakfast was also good and reasonably priced. Free wifi was readily available and worked fine. Overall, I would stay here again it is clean, spacious and comfortable and the view from the room was just amazing day and night.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- We are excited to announce that the Executive House Hotel is being re-branded as DoubleTree by Hilton™ Hotel & Suites Victoria. Total refurbishment of the entire hotel is currently under way and upon re-opening, in Spring 2015, the hotel will be the first Hilton branded hotel on Vancouver Island. Travellers to Victoria will soon have access to the acclaimed Hilton HHonors Rewards Program, where they can redeem points towards hotel stays, vacation packages, air miles and a host of exclusive benefits. The addition of the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel & Suites Victoria to Hilton's portfolio of international hotels opens the door for loyal Hilton travellers to explore the sights of British Columbia's capital city and the natural beauty of Canada's Pacific Northwest. The hotel remains locally owned by the same family, as it has for over 49 years. We will continue to offer a warm friendly welcome and the same dedication to customer service that makes you feel right at home; the DoubleTree by Hilton culture shares the same values that the Executive House Hotel has delivered for years. Victoria and Vancouver Island will welcome a reputable, dynamic, global brand known for its commitment to the highest quality of guest service. And so, although the hotel will undergo some changes, the commitment to our guests and the local community remains the same. We look forward to welcoming you with a signature DoubleTree chocolate chip cookie in Spring 2015! ... more less
