My friends and I chose the Hotel Rialto through a Clipper Ferry package, and could NOT have been happier with our decision! The staff was knowledgeable and friendly throughout our stay. This includes the front desk, cafe, and adjoining restaurant. We used the downtown gym which was a convenient 5 minute walk (complimentary daily visits per guest) and had a GREAT yoga class! We received great restaurant recommendations and only waited 5 minutes (or less) for our taxis after calling from one of our rooms.
The rooms were clean, up-to-date (iron & board, bottle openers, temperature control in both the main room and bathroom), and had the BEST BEDS ever. One friend has a Tempur-Pedic at home and lamented that it wasn't as nice as her hotel bed! While we could not get adjoining rooms, the hotel staff did put all four of us on the top floor. Hot breakfasts in the cafe ended up being free of charge, as "Going Green" each day gave a $10 credit for a room. Breakfast drinks and pastries were complimentary, and the coffee was outstanding! We're spoiled in San Francisco and Seattle, coffee-wise, but all agreed that the black and espresso cups were delicious!
Victoria is a beautiful and relaxing city to stay in, and the Hotel Rialto only made our trip all the better. Highly recommended!
