My 84 year old Mom won a 2 night stay at the Coast Victoria Harbourside Hotel at the Burnaby Hospital Volunteer's luncheon. She has been volunteering there for over 20 years. When I booked the manager Cedric, explained that although the letter stated a "harbourview room," there were none available but that maybe one would come available upon arrival. At check in, the gal at the desk listened politely as my excited Mom explained she had won the stay and gave us the "best room in the house." Top floor corner suite with a 180 degree view of Victoria. My Mom marveled as they delivered our pot of coffee, as she had never in her life had room service having been born at the height of the depression in 1930 and raising 3 children as a single (grade 1 teacher) Mom. She decided then since we were not paying, we would eat at the hotel restaurant (5 out of our 6 meals) as that was "the least we could do to thank them." The restaurant bent over backwards, generously honoring her requests for simple food changes not on the menu (potatoes and veggies with her salmon) as the unknown "tapenade" might not fit her palate. Anyway, we had a lovely stay, every part of the hotel is top-notch. All I can say is book early Friday and Saturday for the Blue Crab Restaurant as it books up fast especially on the weekend. Mom and I walked to the Empress in less than 15 minutes but if you can't keep up with an 84 year old, then grab the little water taxi from the Hotel dock.
