We happened upon Hotel Zed while researching Victoria on the COHO ferry website (between Port Angeles and Victoria) and are glad we gave it a chance! All of your basic needs and comforts are taken care of, but done with a retro style that’s vibrant and cheerful. You’ve got to love colors after living in the Pacific Northwest for a while! In the lounge a real record player and typewriters are available, and we enjoyed the novelty of traveling back in time by using them. The room’s rotary dial phone and alarm clocks gave us the same nostalgia for a bygone era. We also loved the bikes and enjoyed our bike ride on the Galloping Goose trail- highly suggest carving a bit of time out of your stay to bike around or shorten your walking time to downtown by riding in style. It opened in early May so we saw a game room and other features in progress.
Dana and Thom at the front desk were so friendly and helpful and really made us feel welcome. We had a great anniversary weekend in Victoria and look forward to returning when their VW bus is used as a shuttle!
