Stayed two nights in the Strathcona recently. What a nice location! Employees were very friendly. The room was a decent size and decorated just fine. However, the heat, humidity and noise were unbearable. We tried leaving the windows open to capture the cool, pleasant air outside. But the noise, filthy language , and very loud music were too much. Got no sleep at all. After closing the windows, even tho there was a fan in our room, the room was extremely uncomfortable. Plus, the noise even came through the closed windows. We should have asked for a different room but we decided we'd rather see Victoria than take time to make the request and then possibly spend time moving. I doubt that a small window air conditioner for that room would cost this hotel nearly as much as the discomfort of the noise and heat cost their guests.
