“Dingy and no views”
Reviewed March 24, 2013

There are zero views of the ocean from this hotel. In fact you stare directly at the back of the empress. You have to pay 16 a day for parking. We stayed here over staying at the empress as it is a newer hotel, but once inside the rooms it is clear that it is very out dated. The cleaning staff woke us up the one morning. Laughing in the hall and banging their carts together. The manager was just plain rude when we complained. We go to Victoria two or three times a year and we would not recommend this hotel. We would highly recommend the delta or the empress.

This is a great hotel just blocks from the ferry and the float plane docks. Everything is in walking distance, the mall, numerous eateries and bakeries, the Government buildings, parks, the museum, it is all here.

The service was great with everyone friendly and helpful.

The pool and jacuzzi were great but the steam room was excellent!

The room was nice and has free Wi-Fi

The hotel is really nice with big comfortable rooms. It is with in walking distance of all the places downtown Victoria,
The restaurants close by are really really good.
the restaurant at the hotel was very expensive, But there are so many good choices close by that that is not an issue.
The service is really good all the behind the desk and the bell boy go out of there way to make sure everything is good. Thank You all for the great service very professional

I'd stayed at the Marriott previously but didn't review as it was a quick one night stay. This time I stayed 4 nights on a recent business trip and was glad that I chose the Marriott.

The room I was given was located on the 9th floor and didn't have much of a view but that was fine by me. It was clean and the room size was decent. Updates were definitely done to match other Marriott hotels but the washroom still had traces of the old decor with all the marble. The bed was comfortable but the sheets were fairly rough. The room also had a coffee maker and tea, robes, in room safe, iron and ironing board, flat screen TV, and an umbrella which I used during my stay. The room provided Bath and Body Works Orange Ginger bath products which I personally did not like. I did notice that the shower curtain had a stain but otherwise the rest of the room was clean.

The location is good but the walk is steep if you decide to walk up Blanshard Street which was most direct for me to my meeting. It is very central to a lot of tourist attractions without the need of a car (eg: Royal BC Museum, Inner Harbour, the Legislature, downtown Victoria, etc). In addition, the public transit to the ferries, the seaplane terminals, the Victoria bus terminal, and the San Juan ferry terminal are all close by.

I enjoyed the steam room and the pool which is fairly small and is only 5 feet at its deepest part (but It was always nearly empty on the two occasions that I used it). The gym looked nice and modern and provided free oranges and green apples for a post workout snack.

I would stay again at this Marriott location again especially compared to The Empress.

We stayed at the Marriott while in town for a concert and were thoroughly impressed. The check-in was quick and friendly, the room is very clean and beautiful - not overly large but appropriately sized for a night or two stay - the bathroom is spotless and beautiful. All of the staff we interacted with were friendly and made us feel welcome. The room has herbal teas and individual pod coffee - both wonderful. We did not have the opportunity to explore the hotel facilities and nor did we try the restaurant or the room service but I am sure we will do so the next time - as we will most likely stay at the Marriott again on our next trip!

The hotel is well located close to the Government st. shops and restaurants, with the Imax cinema and other attractions nearby. The lower floors have no view, so if this matters to you try to get a room on the 11-16 floor. Parking is $16 for the day, which although expensive is cheaper than a time limited meter on the street. Breakfast was good, although a little pricey.
