Stayed here at the end of September, had a enjoyable stay .
Our room had a small kitchenette which was great as we were there for a week, and eating out in Victoria is an expensive pass time.
The room had a great view down the Main Street to the harbour and we could see the " float planes" coming and going.
The reception staff were helpful and on the whole friendly, willing to help or give advice if they could.
This Hotel doesn't have air conditioning we asked for a fan and almost at once one was delivered. The weather was nice for September and we had windows open, the hotel is on an intersection and could be noisy at night.
The bar under the hotel was brilliant, good atmosphere and we ate in the bar/restaurant on more than one occasion liking the whole feel of the place. Very reasonable prices, basic menu to choose from but very acceptable.
Had breakfast in the hotel, buffet style. We have had better, cold plates, hot food not particularly hot and not a great deal of choice, although if asked they would fry an egg, cold scrambled egg looses its appeal after a couple of days.
On the whole we very much enjoyed our stay in Victoria and at 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.
