Quintessential to Downtown Victoria

Posted 23-Dec-2014
We always stay at the Magnolia. Even though we are 'local', it's our place to stay when we want to stay downtown for an evening. We do get frustrated by the comparisons of booking direct or via Expedia. The former usually gets the better rooms! As of our last visit (probably our 8th or so?), continental breakfast has been discontinued. It was never great to start with, but expecting it, we then we spent the best part of an hour looking for a good eating spot as an alternative. Do your homework. The location is fabulous; close to everything withing easy walking distance. More accessible, and better ease of use than it's more 'famous' neighbouring hotel. What can they do better? Not much ...

Four Glorious Days

Posted 13-Dec-2014
Pros: See above. We liked most everything.
Cons: Need a more convenient continental breakfast -- for less than $12 each. Otherwise, lovely.
Location: Royal BC Museum one of the best. Fabulous First Nation exhibits. Imax convenient. Bateman Centre featuring his works was beautiful and inspiring.
Loved the intimacy and cozy feel of hotel combined with modern facilities. Good restaurant although continental breakfast too pricey; dinner was good. Housekeeping staff was helpful, friendly, went out of their way to get us more tea, mints, etc. Good location near Empress, museums, harbor and all the wonderful shopping nearby.

chic,cozy and impeccable

Posted 28-Nov-2014
Pros: Everything!
Top notch hotel. If this is what a boutique hotel is, then I am a fan! The room was beautiful and spotless. Apples ,chocolate and bottled water [ all complimentary ] was in our room upon arrival. There was a lovely umbrella in the room for us to use if needed. The bathrobes were soft and really nice quality. All the details were thought of. The hotel staff were knowledgeable and sincerley friendly. I really enjoyed our stay and will absolutely stay there again.

Great hotel - centrally located!

Posted 24-Nov-2014
Pros: Location was perfect for walking around the central core.
Location: We were close to great restaurants, the beautiful port and the shopping along Government St.,
excellent service by all the staff - including the restaurant! Fantastic view from the room. Breakfast was very good but recommend going before 9:30 to miss the rush.
