Tour of Canada

Stayed at this lovely hotel for two nights at the start of our tour of the Canadian Rocky Mountains. Ideal location right across from the water front. This is a large five star hotel with all the amenities one would expect. Rooms are good and staff are friendly and efficient. Very good start to our holiday

Great location, in the middle of everything

This hotel is impressive both for its location and architecture. Located in the centre of Victoria. It's a big hotel with a caring nature, something that is uncommon in today's world. The rooms are well equipped with all the modern requirements. They have done a great job upgrading this hotel. The staff are helpful, nothing is a problem, they deserved to be complemented on their caring nature and interest in all their guest. Thank you

Poor Value for the Price

While the Empress has wonderful historic value and is beautifully restored, for what you get it is not worth the price. The rooms and bathrooms are understandably small given architectural constraints but lack some basics - conveniently placed outlets by the beds to plug in electronic devices. Parking, WiFi and breakfast are not automatically included with the expensive room prices, standard at most hotels. And service is not consistent. On Canada Day it was superlative but 2 weeks later it was miserable; it took 30 minutes both to be served breakfast and receive my vehicle (that to the one night price of $32). High tea is over the top at $75. Although the scones and savory sandwiches were good the overall tea was pastry heavy; those of which were not particularly tasty. I would definitely not recommend staying at the Empress. A walk through and perhaps a drink at the bar would be enough to get the feel for the grandeur of the Empress.

quick holiday

Great hotel in a nice location. pricey but good value. The staff were very good and room are spacious and very clean. The pool and hot tub are excellent for relaxation at night. The High Tea is an experience but expensive for what you get

Didn't dissappoint

Went for our anniversary. The location and history of the hotel were the initial draws. We found the service and personnel to be excellent and the facility to be above average. The only issue we encountered was the noise of the cooling system which wasn't so disruptive to complain. We did end up asking to upgrade our room to a harbor view.
