Iconic hotel

Empress is a must stay if your visiting Victoria. Nicely updated, awesome location and great restaurant.Staff is great. Somewhat pricey but with US exchange rate often a deal!Easily travel to scenic route and have great access to beautiful old part of Victoria.

High Tea

We came to the High Tea in November to celebrate the recent passing of my oldest sister. My mom, sister and son wanted to experience the high tea because it was one of the fondest memories of my sister. The server could not have been more accommodating and friendly. I don't even think he knew we were there to celebrate someone who had recently passed. He was jsut so excited to help us experience and appreciate the experience. I hope to make this an annual experience.

Celebrating my wife’s convocation from Royal Roads, we chose our last night here. High Tea was a highlight and treat for my wife & son. Every member of hotel staff we interacted with went out of their way to recognize my wife’s achievement and congratulate her making her feel welcome and special. That alone was priceless and showed exemplary customer service.

Hit or miss

My wife and I were there for a conference. It seems as though you got nothing unless you had tipped someone. We stayed in a king suite and one morning I texted to say there were bugs in our room and I had video. 4 hours later they went into the room and said we didn’t have any bugs. Again I had a video. At 2:30 I went back to the room the housekeeper that was in the room and didn’t notice or see any bugs hadn’t cleaned the room. Oh did you want housekeeping to clean the room? I’m not sure why we would have left a tip on the bed and door without the privacy hanger on it. Don’t want a free room or anything else. Just believe the hotel has lost the art of service.

Charm & Convenience

I stayed for 4 days while attending a convention in the adjoining Victoria Convention Centre. The location of this historic landmark makes for easy sight seeing and running along the inner harbour. The spa has some pretty amazing practitioners but I highly suggest booking far in advance (I was lucky enough to book a therapy due to a cancellation). The hotel rooms themselves have been upgraded (the plumbing is still dated with less than desirable pressure. The soundproofing is also less than desirable. When any door down the corridor closes you can easily hear it inside your room. The beds are comfortable, the common area furnishings are welcoming and comfortable. Loved the texting concierge service - a new age technology that we used a few times. The staff were anticipatory and very helpful.
