Had a 3 day get away with 4 longtime friends. We loved the Chateau. The location was the best around as we were within a couple blocks of everything downtown and the main attractions on the inner harbor. The Chateau is just behind the Empress and Marriott. The staff was always friendly, cheerful and very helpful. They were very knowledgable and told us exactly which buses to take to get to the gardens and castle. They drew maps to everywhere else we wanted to go. The rooms were very nice and comfortable for 5. We had a queen one bedroom suite which easily slept 5 .We had a seperate sitting room with very nice sofa bed ,chair, desk, window, closet and mirror. We had two TVs, two sinks, frig, lots of mirrors(important for 5 women) stand up airconditioner which was quiet and worked well. The temp was in the 80's and the conditioner worked well. We had a small balcony with a nice view of the harbor. The food in Vista 18 was wonderful and everything was fresh and homemade. We especially enjoyed breakfast. The view was the best in town. The lounge downstairs was also nice and friendly with good food.The room was ready when we arrrived at 9:30am and they staff locked up our luggage till we left on the 3rd day at 6:00pm. The van driver was at the dock to pick us up within minutes of arrival and returned us to the Victoria Express when we left. The drivers were very friendly and shared about Victoria when we arrived. I would highly recommend the Chateau for anyone wanting to be downtown in a very nice, friendly and clean hotel. I will definately return to the Chateau with my husband. The cost for a suite that would sleep 5 was $200. Most hotels we would have had to book 2 rooms for a total higher price. I would also recommend high tea at the gardens. What a setting we had at the garden and it was half the price of the Empress. The only thing not a positive would be the morning downtown traffic noise which would apply at any downtown hotels.
