The service and the hotel staff were amazing! Attentiveness to our needs and right-on recommendations made our stay superb. The room, a queen suite, was clean, roomy and well-decorated. We needed an iron and it was delivered within minutes.

Like other reviewers, we too loved both the café and the bar. The bartending staff were fabulous! I cannot remember the name of the female bartender that made our drinks -- but she was truly an artist. I truly have never had a mixed drink as good as the one she created for me!

Even if you don't stay at this hotel, you need to stop in at the bar and tapas restaurant for a drink!

We loved Victoria and this European-style boutique hotel in a beautifully renovated building. Would absolutely return.

We had a very pleasant stay in Victoria at the Hotel Rialto. The only thing that bothered me slightly was the small shower stall in the bathroom. Other than that it was perfect. Maureen at the front desk was extremely helpful in helping us with our travel arrangements. The hotel is walking distance from inner harbor. We were given vouchers to get a beverage and pastry for each morning of our stay. Their muffins were wonderful! each room had a microwave and fridge, Overall, it was a really comfortable stay.

You know how there are certain hotels that are just...well...right? And when you find one, it's where you land whenever you hit that town? We have found our home away from home in Victoria!

Hotel Rialto is a beautifully restored heritage building right downtown. The Euro vibe is really well done. The rooms are small but well furnished, the fixtures and features well thought out. Microwave, small fridge and too large flat screen TV. Beds firmer than the true European experience (thank heaven). Bathroom thoughtful and usefully appointed.

Desk and housekeeping staff was exceedingly helpful, friendly, accommodating.

The Tapas restaurant in the hotel is busy, well designed and trendy. The dishes were variable - some excellent and some not so much - but were all well presented. Our server needed a little encouragement to be flexible and think outside the menu but the kitchen responded well once agreement was reached. A plaintive late-night request for a 'take-away' version of their lovely cheese tray was met with quick action and lovely presentation. The bar (and bartenders) are art in motion.

The lobby café (also the breakfast room) is awesome - the food well prepared and the service appropriately friendly and breakfast-like. We weren't planning to eat breakfast there but ended up doing so each morning of our stay.

Parking is just around the corner in a secure street-level lot. Victoria is pretty small, so walking to anywhere downtown is at most a ten minute deal but the Rialto is pretty quiet for being right in the thick of it. It is a boutique property - maybe 50 rooms - so you quickly become a known person and the greetings of staff are more personal than you'll find at larger or franchised hotels.

All this at a price more in line with cookie cutter chains. We will be staying there again.

I traveled with a group and stayed at Hotel Rialto and had a fabulous experience. The room was beautiful, the bed was great, food in both the cafe and the tapa lounge was fantastic. They have the World's Slowest Elevator; otherwise this place is perfect. Best of all: every staff person we encountered, from the maid to the manager was supremely hospitable.

Room Tip: Some rooms experience street noise. We were in an interior room, so no view at all, but very quiet. A/C is non-intrusive (we are sensitive to that issue) and the "King romance" room has a fabulous, large bathroom.

The rooms are nice and the location great but what made our stay special at Hotel Rialto was the superb service. Josh, Simon and Melanie in the bar were professional and friendly. The art of bar tending is alive and well here. Naomi, Katie and Maddy are an efficient, kind and warm breakfast crew. The front desk staff is efficient, patient and a font of knowledge. You all made us San Diegans feel very welcome on your city.
