Having stayed in almost all of the higher end hotels in Victoria and Vancouver, I find myself becoming very disillusioned with the state of cleanliness in the rooms and halls. We recently stayed in one of the most expensive hotels in Van and the carpets were literally crusty! SO, it's nice to stay in a hotel that is clean!! I'm sure this is due to the fact that it only opened in June, but still......
The location is great and we had no problem finding parking. (which was free for us as we arrived on Saturday at 6pm) There is a hotel parkade a block away if street parking is not up your alley. Front desk staff were very friendly and helpful, the rooms were (as I said) clean, pretty plain Jane but fresh looking. No mini bar but there is a fridge. The linens are wonderful and the pillows were so good my sister and I each bought 4 before we left! ($25 each)
You get a coupon for a free cheese plate in the bar/lounge which was delicious, and the muffins at the free Continental in the morning were gigantic and home made looking! The table next to us did order a hot breakfast and have to say, it looked and smelled wonderful.
My only complaints were the TV - it was old, the sound was terrible, and the remote sensor was kind of dangling over the top of the tv, and I wish the bathroom had a bigger shower.
All in all though, for $100? Two thumbs up. I'll be staying there again next time I'm in Vic.
