Family Friendly Hotels
Different families have different needs and that makes it difficult to define family friendly hotels. But the majority of families typically look for accommodation that is conveniently located, reasonably priced, and offers amenities to occupy their children such as swimming pools and internet. Often suites are preferred to accommodate larger families or families that desire a kitchen to save money on eating out. Another driver for families is complimentary breakfast.
Here are some examples of family friendly hotels in the city:
Family Friendly Restaurants

For a medium sized city, Victoria has an incredible amount of choice to suit every taste and even boasts the most restaurants per capita in all of Canada! The selection of family friendly restaurants is primarily based on price and the offering of a children's menu.

Victoria also offers the traditional fast food outlets downtown including McDonald's, Subway, Tim Horton's, and A&W to name a few. There are also numerous 99 cent pizza outlets throughout the city and a food court in the Bay Centre. If you're looking to do it on your own for a picnic or perhaps managed to book a kitchen suite at your hotel, there is a Thrifty Foods grocery store located in James Bay if you are located at one of the James Bay or Inner Harbour hotels. If you are located downtown, The Market On Yates is likely a more convenient choice. For guests on the Gorge, Fairway Markets is nearby.
