I stayed there for three nights during my business trip to Victoria. The hotel in itself is a must-see, beautiful building overlooking the wharf. The visitor centre is right across the street and the area is full of restaurants. The Royal British Columbia museum is a two-minute walk from the lobby.
Service was perfect from beginning to end. I had just arrived from Vancouver where my hotel was quite average, and after mentionning the tinniness of the room I'd just spent my last two nights in, the lafy who did my check-in upgraded my room to a deluxe room free of charge. "Hopefully this will make you feel better!" She said.
And indeed it did! Room was spacious, the bed amazing! Decor is old fashioned but it suits the place very well. Staff was Also very helpful when I asked for a lunch and breaffast box to be delivered to my room at 5 am. As a vegetarian, I was very pleased to see that they included a delicious grilled vegetable sandwich in my bags.
My stay at the Empress was flawless. I recommend it to anyone who wishes to spend a few days in Victoria.
