Tea at the Empress is a nice experience and a treat for sure, but it is very expensive. I would recommend going for tea at a less expensive place (there are so many great little places around the downtown area and Oak Bay as well), but make sure you visit the Empress and walk all around inside and out. It's a beautiful hotel full of history. Don't forget to go downstairs and check out all the artifacts down there. Stairs are on the main floor over where all the shops are.
