Our family (2 adults & 7 year old ) spent a week long vacation in the City Skyline Suite - what an amazing home away from home with breathtaking views. It provided us all the comforts of home and it's central location allowed us to walk and explore downtown Victoria and it's beautiful harbour with ease.

The City Panorama Suite in the Astoria building is on the 18th floor and truly gives you a panoramic view of the city, with mountains and ocean peeking out from different angles. When Steve opened the door for us, we literally yelped in joy. It was breathtaking to see such an amazing view from floor-to-ceiling windows on multiple walls.
This suite is perfect for two or three people (my husband and I were there with our daughter), but could nicely accommodate two couples, or a couple with two children who could share a double bed. The master bedroom has an en suite bathroom that's fully equipped, as is the main bathroom. The kitchen is supplied with six plates, bowls, glasses, wine glasses—and everything else you could possibly need—so it was a delight to have our son, daughter-in-law and one-year-old granddaughter (Victoria residents) visit for dinner one night and breakfast another day.
We were thrilled with this suite. On sunny days the south/east-facing balcony was a perfect place to enjoy our morning coffee. The second bedroom is actually a sunroom with ceiling-to-floor windows, and my daughter adored sleeping there with all the city lights around her. (You can lower the blinds if you want!) The place was spotless on arrival and easy to keep tidy. All linens were sparkling clean and white; duvets and blankets seemed brand new. Decor was pleasant and comfortable and made it very easy to feel at home. Nothing was lacking. There was even an iPod dock on the stereo—which we loved. We never watched TV, but there was a huge screen, plus another in the master bedroom.
The location is fantastic. Downtown shopping, restaurants, the harbour are all within walking distance. There's a 7-Eleven and a liquor store right around the corner. And the building is in a beautiful residential neighborhood, well worth exploring.
Finally—you couldn't find more gracious "landlords" than Steve and Trish. They are so welcoming, kind, and willing to help in any way, but not the least intrusive. Security is over-the-top; I'm sure you could leave the Crown Jewels in the suite without any worries. (Our only nitpick was that we had to go to the lobby to bring our guests up.)
All in all, we couldn't recommend this suite more highly. Enjoy!

We spent the Victoria Day long weekend in the City Loft Suite.

Steve (the owner) gave us pretty easy directions from the airport and met us as we were pulling into the parkade. Check in was simple and Steve gave us a quick little tour of the loft.

The loft had all the amenities that we needed. Dishwasher, laundry, cork floors, fully stocked kitchen, and some fruits and bread for breakfast. The only small hiccup was that the ethernet cable for the internet was not there when we checked in. Steve remedied this very quickly and had a cable in the loft for us by the time we returned from dinner.

The location of the loft is quite good. It is just steps from the waterfront, and only about a 5 - 10 minute walk from the Empress. The only problem is that there is a club just across the street and it can get a little loud at night. Earplugs are provided in the suite though, but we did not require them.

We would definately stay again.

From the moment we were met by Steve (the owner) off the airporter bus we felt comfortable and at home. The condo (Metro Suite, Astoria Building) is furnished to a high standard with wooden floors, glass topped tables, leather and suede sofas and chairs and a kitchen with every appliance or utensil you would ever need. With cable TV, DVD, stereo system and internet with free local and North America calls we immediately felt at home. Our hosts Steve and Trish were most helpful and only a phone call away if there was a problem or if information was needed. There is secure underground parking and video entry system. The location of the condo is fantastic, only a few minutes from the inner harbour, Parliament Buildings and the down town shopping area. Whether you stay for a few days or for longer you couldn't choose a better place to stay...........
