This isn't a big hotel. But the people working here definitely have big hearts. Amazing service, and our room was very comfortable. It is a smaller but clean and presentable hotel. Very good location, as we walked to many of the landmarks nearby. Free valet parking was a huge plus too!!

This was a Christmas vacation stay for a good friend. The Rialto is a smaller old hotel that has been refurbished into a boutique style hotel. The employees are overall engaged in your comfort and happiness. Rooms are nothing special but are comfortable enough and the heated bathroom floor was an appreciated touch. Rain shower heads would be a good... More

The half price appetizers were excellent and hearty proportions. We enjoyed the complimentary cheese platter including delicious roasted garlic. Our room was meticulously clean and right down to the robes and even ear plugs, they have though of it all. Most of all the staff greeted us like friends and were most gracious. Thanks again for a wonderful stay. We've... More

The staff was amazing and obviously all worked well as a team, from the front desk people to the valet's. The hotel was clean, crisp modern but a touch of historic flair. The free cheese plate and coffee in the morning were a great bonus and appreciated bonus. There was homeless person discussion at 4am outside but that is to... More

Stayed one night for business and very pleasantly surprised with the quality of the rooms, the exceptionally welcoming staff, and the amenities in the hotel. Also had a chance to enjoy the tapas bar and the breakfast cafe. The staff and food were great.

Just returned from a very enjoyable short (3 day/2 night) trip to Victoria. Hotel Rialto was great -- Upon arrival I learned I'd been upgraded to a junior suite (always nice). Hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. Room was comfortable and they'd even provided earplugs in case street noise was a problem. (It really wasn't an issue for me,... More

We stayed only 1 night and I wish it could have been more. Every person we interacted with was professional, helpful, and friendly. They parked our car, even packed it again the next day after storing our bags for several hours. The location is fantastic for seeing the best that downtown has to offer. I can only recommend it.
