Easy walk from Coho!
My wife and I just returned from a two night outing to Victoria, and were both very pleased with the Royal Scot.
Location: perfect for Coho travelers, right next to Parliament as well. No water view if you can do without that.
Staff: Very nice, very courteous. One exceptional example: our last day, we were going for a long walk along the harbor. Wwe mentioned this to the staff, and they indicated that if we needed it, we could call for a ride back in their shuttle! Just let them know where we were! (There were limits to this of course.) Well, we didn't need the ride back, but the offer was very kind.
Room: Very nice. Little details included having an in-room safe, really excellent lighting (unusual in hotel rooms in my experience), very comfortable bed, ample seating, perhaps the best showerhead I've ever experienced (where can I get one???), and even the laundry bag was above-average. Towels nice and plush too.
Hotel (general): some cool features! My favorite was a book room downstairs, nice library to look through. Also, we had a mini-library of books already in our room. And a pool table??? I don't play pool, but not every day you see a hotel with a pool table. One bad feature: access to pool is only (as far as I can tell) thru the locker-room/bathroom. Yuch. I don't swim, but if I want to go sit at the side of the pool, I don't want to walk through a locker room.
Restaurant: not vegetarian friendly, so didn't eat there.
Overall: highly recommended!
