My husband and I have traveled extensively in Europe and Asia. We both agreed that our choice of the Villa Marco Polo and Victoria could not have been more perfect. The peaceful Rockland neighborhood was close enough to the city and the water for easy access but felt far, far away from the somewhat exberant, touristy bustle of the Inner Harbor downtown area.
Our room was as nice as any we have ever experienced. We stayed in the Zanzibar room on the second floor with a magnificent view of the garden with the water and snow covered Olympia mountains in the background. Every detail had been attended to resulting in that rare combination of luxury and home-like comfort. Creating that kind of decor is an art that the proprietors of Villa Marco Polo have perfected in the rooms, the lovely library, the garden and the living room.
Breakfast was elegantly served, beautifully prepared delicious and healthy! What a switch from many B&B breakfasts that overwhelm one with fat and sugar!
This is no ordinary place. I can't wait to go back and have already emailed friends and family suggesting they put this Inn on their list of future vacations.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- A leisurely game of bocce, a glass of amarone, a stroll past the reflecting pool of an Italian Renaissance garden, a massage in a romantic penthouse spa. Tuscany or Umbria perhaps? In fact, the exotic Villa Marco Polo, one of Victoria's most sumptuous inns, is located in Victoria's elegant Rockland quarter. This classically designed Victoria Inn, built in 1923 as a gift to a young bride, remains a favourite romantic getaway and wedding venue. ... more less
