“Victoria August 2-4”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2014

Very clean, lovely room, loved the full kitchen and the bathtub. Did not love how hot it was (no AC, because of the LEED cert) and truly disliked the street noise, very intrusive. Otherwise an excellent facility, wonderful location.

The Parkside has suites that are among the nicest I have ever seen. (One can arrange adjoining suites.) Ours had a full kitchen, including dishwasher and combined washer/dryer (a real plus!), with a full living room and king-sized bedroom, with master bathroom and smaller bathroom, as well as a balcony. The price we paid (group rates) was cheaper than most hotels. Parkside is also very handy to everything in downtown Victoria but away from the most noisy downtown streets. (It is right across from St. Ann's Academy, which itself backs on to Beacon Hill Park.) The service fro all the staff couldn't have been more personal and attentive. Highly recommended!

Room Tip: The only downside is that some rooms are located along the very busy Blanchard Street, so if you are...

Beautiful setting from which to explore and enjoy Victoria. We loved the Parkside and hope to return. A LEED certified building with elegant patios, a kitchen, dining room and separate bedroom. A market is within 10 minutes of walking.

We loved having a suite during our stay in Victoria. This hotel is a gem! It is centrally located to most of the major attractions as well as plenty of restaurants in Victoria. Great customer service and very comfortable rooms make this an excellent choice.

Great Service by all staff members, a home away from home. The suite was huge with all that is required for a family to enjoy. The kids loved the pool and it was great to have a little cafe inside the hotel.

Nice suite, very clean and conveniently located to shopping and attractions. But make sure you know (or to ask) what amenities they have because they won't bother to mention them to you when you check in.
