We have stayed at several hotels in the Victoria inner harbor area over the years, but we have never checked in this one before. Even we have drove by it many times, the hotel had never appealed to us very much. .However, we check into this hotel during our recent trip to Victoria. It was a quite surprise once we entered our suite! Above a dinning table, there was a nice lamp gives us a sense of home right away. Unlike those typical kitchenettes in most hotels’ suites, this kitchen is a full kitchen. It comes with a stove/even, a hood fan, an apartment size refrigerator and a microwave. The cabinets looked very clean and modern, with thick granite counter tops and glass doors. When I opened those cabinets, I found a toaster, a coffee maker, a tea pot and plenty of utensils. There are even some creamers ready in the refrigerator for coffee.
From the dinning area walked into the living room, the floor from granite tiles change to hard wood, both rooms looked very clean and fresh. The size of living room is small, but for a hotel room, it’s still a nice size. Furniture is not fancy, but comfortable. A plasma TV sits in front of a large hide-a-way sofa bed. Next to the living room there is a separated bedroom with a King-size bed and another plasma TV. The bed is very comfortable. Decors are tasteful.
After we have settled in, we realized that we were only one block from the Victoria Inner Harbor, BC Parliament Building, the Royal BC Museum, the Empress Hotel and Victoria Conference Center. Although we were in the middle of everything, we still felt like we were in a quite park like area. In the front of the hotel, there is a beautiful park extends all the way to a nice beach, a great place for a morning/evening walk!
Next to the lobby, there is a “tea room” offers complimentary coffee, tea, fruits and cookies every afternoon. We met three couples during our tea-break. They told us that they stayed there for 2-3 months every year for last ten years and how much they enjoyed their stay. For the location, the amenities and price, we are so glad that we have finally discovered a place we enjoy in the beautiful Victoria.
