Editor’s Review of Royal Scot

Tucked away on quiet Quebec Street, just off of Victoria's Inner Harbour, the four-story Royal Scot Hotel and Suites may look modest and old-school compared to the looming hotels on the waterfront, but for families, this locally owned hotel can't be beat. The biggest attraction is the large number of suite-style rooms with full kitchens that make city travel with kids a lot more comfortable (and budget-friendly). Add in the quiet location, onsite pool, and game room, and your trip to Victoria is set.

The Royal Scot is conveniently located downtown, just a few minutes' stroll from the Inner Harbour, parliament buildings, Royal BC Museum, and other attractions. Victoria gets busy, especially in the summer, so ditching the
... more car to explore on foot is the best way to go, and the Royal Scot's location is perfect. Our family also appreciated retreating back to the hotel after a day of touring with bustling crowds. Besides the quiet, but convenient location, what sets the hotel apart is its friendly, knowledgeable staff, ready to offer recommendations and insider tips to visitors. The hotel also offers a free courtesy shuttle to points of interest downtown. less

For families, the suite-style rooms offer full kitchens that don't cost much more than a standard guestroom. They are available on any floor. Depending on family size, choose from a studio, one-bedroom, or two-bedroom. As a family of four, we did fine in the one-bedroom style because the living room sofa folds out into a queen bed. Note: No ADA-compliant rooms or suites are available.

All the suites have kitchens with full-size refrigerators, stoves, and cookware and dishes for four (studio and one-bedroom) or six (two bedroom), as well as a dinette area with table and chairs. There's also a toaster, microwave, and coffeemaker with complimentary coffee, tea, and cookies. If you're traveling with little ones, ask the front desk for a highchair.

The Studio Suite is not exactly a studio and may be just the ticket for small families. The layout contains a sitting area with a double or queen sofa bed separated by a partition wall to the bedroom with either a queen or double bed; be sure to ask if you want to be assured of a queen bed.

The One-Bedroom Suites are available with either a king, queen, or two twin beds in the bedroom and a queen sofa bed in the living room. For more space, the Manor One-Bedroom Suite offers a larger living room and dining area combined.

The Two-Bedroom Suites offer a king bed in one bedroom and two double beds in the second bedroom and dishes/utensils for six. If you're a family of five or more, you don't necessarily need to upgrade to a two-bedroom unless you want to. The hotel will supply complimentary cribs and cots.

The suites' spacious living rooms come with comfortable lounge chairs, a sofa, LCD TV, and DVD player. The bedrooms also contain TVs. Other complimentary perks include free Wi-Fi, daily newspaper delivery, bathrobes, a hairdryer, and iron/ironing board. The full bathroom has a bathtub and shower.

Standard Guest Rooms
These rooms offer similar perks, such as bathrobes, microwaves, and coffee pots, but don't include a kitchen or dinette. Rooms come equipped with one queen, king, or two queen beds. For families who want to save time and money on dining out, the kitchen suites really are the way to go.
