When we arrived on the Clipper we were directed to walk along the Harbor Path to the hotel. It was the opposite direction from town and a long walk. We finally found the hotel. When checking in as usual I asked for a room on an upper floor, but was informed since we booked with the Victoria Clipper only rooms on the lower floors facing away from the magnificent view were what the hotel's agreement was with the service. We could upgrade for forty dollars more. Since it was my birth day weekend I considered it, but when the desk checked all the rooms were taken. They asked didn't the Victoria Clipper tell me about upgrading!
Our corner room was very pleasant with comfortable furnishings. It did overlook the front entrance and the air/heat plant, but there were no disturbing noises.
We ate breakfasts and dinner in the dining room and the views were wonderful. The staff was great and they did have a van service that took us into town with our luggage when we left to board the bus for our ferry ride to Vancouver.
