Great Location Styling Amenities & Fantastic Value
The Parkside Hotel & Spa is a terrifically styled hotel. It's in a very nice location in Victoria, close to the Inner Harbour, BC Museum & Beacon Hill Park. It's in a very quite part of the city and not much traffic noise to speak of.
Victoria is a beautiful city and the hotel is located in this picturesque area that is terrific to walk around in.
We have stayed here 4 times now and love the amenities they add. Every night they show 2 movies in their theatre, the first a family on and the next for a more mature audience. It would top off the experience if there was some popcorn but hey, I've never been to a hotel that runs free movies before. So I guess you can't have it all, so we bring our own popcorn and pop it in the microwave in the room.
The Rooms are great and have a fantastic layout for a small family. It is nice how the bedroom can be closed off like a Suite. The bonus of having a Kitchen is fabulous especially if you have little ones like we do. You can chill your wine while you go down to the massive beautiful indoor pool and relax in the big hot tub.
We even took advantage of the great gym facilities. The equipment room had everything you need for a great workout.
The one thing I did notice is that the hallway carpets are looking a little unkept and the walls are getting dinged everywhere from peoples baggage carts of the staff cleaning carts. It is a shame as it is a very stylish hotel and these small flaws do standout when something looks so close to perfect.
