If you are like me you tend to be on a budget, even with your employer's expense account. The Victoria Marriott Inner Harbour is simply one of the best places to stay in Victoria. The only competitor is the grand Fairmont Empress, which you can't really compare because of its history and location, not quite a block away.
I must say this is one of the best experiences I have had as a frequent traveler. I've been to Victoria a few times, staying at the Delta across the harbour, a now defunct Holiday Inn, and this Marriott property. The Delta is great but you have such a fantastic location at the Marriott there is no way if pricing is close I'd stay at the Delta (and it had been my preferred hotel in Vic).
Greeting by the desk staff was friendly and quick. I appreciated the manner in which I was treated and the excellent room I was provided. The room, as you can tell from the photos, is spacious (larger than the Delta). There is a small balcony with a trick door to access. The fitness center is top knotch-kudos to Marriott for the equipment selection with iPod integration.
The grand dame Fairmont Empress is across the street if you want tea or to view a beautiful older property. It's a bit ostentatious for my tastes not to mention my wallet but you have to at least walk through the place, and view the magnificent architecture and gardens.
Parking costs extra, even for visitors with Marriott status. The garage is underneath the hotel. Park your car, you can walk all over downtown and the inner harbour. There are countless restaurants, pubs, shops and sights to experience.
The Marriott has a special room on the upper floor (14th?) for executive members; it includes breakfast and an afternoon reception.
