We stayed here 2 nights. The room was lovely. Check-in was easy. You either valet park or park on the street and feed the meter all day. The bed was really confortable and the view was not bad from our room on the 7th floor. It is a very quiet hotel and feels like a private club with wood paneled walls. It is super convenient to everything you might want to see in downtown Victoria.

Continental Breakfast was included and quite good.

This hotel is a block or 2 from the Empress. Easy to find.

The Hotel Magnolia was a pleasant surprise... A small hotel located just a couple of blocks from Victoria's famous Inner Harbour. Sumptuous room decor, marble bathrooms, skin-caressing bathrobes, complementary fruit and bottled water, and of course chocolates. PLUS complimentary Wi-Fi and continental breakfast in a lovely restaurant! What more could you want? Oh, yes ... A fabulous Spa on-property (we had a wonderful couples massage) and a fitness center. To top it off, there was live piano music in the lobby Saturday morning. AND the rates were quite reasonable. We will definitely return to this gem of a property.

First time here and only stayed one night off a cruise ship. Have stayed many times at the Empress Hotel on the Entree Gold floor which is better for the food, appetizers, and honor bar BUT Magnolia was a much easier and quicker check in, easier to park the car and much less crowded. Only 2 blocks behind Empress. Room was clean and spacious, bed was wonderful etcetc.
I think I have found my new hotel when in Victoria.

Room Tip: Took cheapest room and it was great. Room 503.

My husband and I made a quick getaway to Victoria at the end of March to celebrate our 45th wedding anniversary. We were able to walk to the Magnolia from the ferry terminal. The check-in was quick and easy, and when I mentioned that we were there for our anniversary, a delicious sample box of chocolates magically appeared in our room. What a lovely surprise. The front desk was very attentive in giving us directions to various local sites and restaurants. The price was right, the service impeccable, the room light, bright and sparkling clean....we would definitely recommend this lovely boutique hotel and plan to return again.

My Husband and I were going on our honeymoon a few weeks after our wedding, but we wanted to get away for a few days. They have a great deal on their website where if you pay upfront 30 days in advance, you get 30% off. They were running a great sale during boxing week last year too for all dates in 2013, so we booked another stay for Christmas this year. The location is perfect, very central to everything. The parking was great, though it is limited. It's great that it's complimentary. Our room was great, and had an awesome view of the Empress, and the Government Building. It's a lot more expensive than we normally would pay, but it's much less than the Empress. I think we plan to stay there in the Winter though when we go, since the walk isn't as far in the terrible weather.

Overall a good place to stay, location is good- hard to go wrong with most locations as city is small. Nice but wouldn't say it looks exactly like the website pictures etc. Good breakfast included- lots to eat and very good coffee. Hard to go wrong and would definitely recommend. Only issue was checking out they said I took something from mini-bar. When I told the person checking me out that I didn't he said he would take care of it- sure enough found three dollar charge on my credit card. He also seemed to think I was just saying this etc- never apologized etc- be on the lookout for mini- bar charges.

The location is central so once the valet has taken your vehicle, you won't need it again until you check out. Lovely rooms ~ tastefully decorated, clean and quiet. We had a view of the harbour and enjoyed watching the sea planes come and go. Staff are always pleasant. The complimentary breakfast served in the restaurant each morning has a good variety. The hotel also has a spa which I was able to enjoy.

Room Tip: Best to pay the extra for a harbour view room.
