This is a great option on a downtown hotel! There are plenty of dining options, good shopping and sight-seeing within a few blocks. A higher floor (7 and up) on the view (south) side would be fantastic!
The Hotel is in a geat location central to the city and harbour. The rooms were large and well layed out. Quality of the fittings were good. Express a desire to have a room with a Harbour views as it would be worth it. I missed out on this as I was upgraded to a larger room but missed out on the views. Maybe next time.
While there is no pool or kids’ club at this hotel, families are within walking distance to the Inner Harbor, numerous kid-friendly museums, Fisherman’s Wharf and much more.

The Best Time to Visit
Victoria has the mildest of temperatures in all of Canada. It never gets too hot or cold here, making it a great year-round destination.
Located on Vancouver Island, Victoria International Airport and the ferry port are both less than 30 minutes away from this hotel. Seaplanes and water taxis at Inner Harbor are a five-minute walk from the hotel.
Victoria is a very walkable city. Families can easily walk to most of the things to do in Victoria. Taxis are also readily available in front of the hotel. Guests can also book a package that includes use and parking of the hotel’s electric car. The car can only seat one person, so it’s not ideal for families, but a cool feature if mom or dad wants to take a spin.
The attached pub is a great spot for the adults to grab a pint after a long day of traveling
