Great place to stay
We have been to Victoria many time. We have stayed at the Empress several times, the Grand Pacific once, bed & breakfasts 2 times, but this is our favorite hotel. The rooms we have had have been wonderful, with views across the inner harbor to watch the water taxis flit back and forth. The hotel is exceptionally clean and well maintained. The restaurant in the hotel has good food and service. We get massages at the spa and my wife got a body scrub. It is a 5 minute walk across the Johnson Street bridge to Chinatown and downtown. All things considered this is, in our opinion, the nicest hotel in Victoria.
