Great Hotel; Great Location
So - this is NOT the Four Season Olympic. Or a $5000 a night place.... BUT - the rooms are Clean; the 'free' breakfast is FANTASTIC - Fruits, Hot links, Hot eggs, Numerous choices of drinks, tea, coffee, juices, cold water, waffles... etc. The CHEF (yep - has an actual chef) watches over the food, replenishes as needed; and tries to make a quality breakfast every morning. Every room has a balcony. (which we used to store our bicycles.) Four floors; we were on the Third... There are no great 'views' - but we were on the side which gave us a view of a large parking lot AND the old Victoria Legislative Government building. (which has reserved parking in the lot previously mentioned.) This hotel includes FREE parking; choose between Outside or in the GARAGE beneath the hotel. (very limited height - about 6' 6" max) And the breakfast is 'free' (included in the price quoted for the room) - they don't tack on ANOTHER charge (like a hotel less than a block away) if you want breakfast! This is not the Ritz. But they are clean rooms; air conditioned; large rooms with balcony; FULL Bath (not just shower); free parking; free wireless Internet; just across the street from the Government Legislative Building; and I highly recommend it. I will stay there again - if their policies remain the same.. Close to all the major attractions. The Horse Carriage Clip Clops go by on the street every once in awhile. The BC Museum & Empress are both less than 2 blocks away... GREAT value!
