tripadvisor Traveler Reviews
  • Via_girl : Qualicum Beach, Canada
Luxury hotel with the opulence of yesteryear

This is still our favorite place to stay in Victoria and now with all the updates it exudes the charm of yesteryear but with a tasteful, modern design. No detail has been overlooked in this huge renovation. Our room was well appointed, quiet and exceptionally clean. Staff is polished and willing to please in any way they can. All the things one expects from a Fairmont you will find here at the Empress.

Rm was extra ordinary. The breakfast was outstanding. The associates were very helpful and pleasant. Always a smile. The only thing amiss was a blow dryer for the hair and clear explanation about all the amenities which are included in the price of the room.Rooms were clean, fresh, well organized.

Go all out or don't go.

I loved the character of this hotel but felt if you don't go all in on a top tier room then it is just an expensive average room. We had a great stay, but because of the age of the hotel (all upgraded) the rooms are small and the bathrooms are even smaller.

Fabulous hotel in the heart of Victoria

We stay at Fairmont hotels where possible and this Fairmont is one of the best. We stayed on the Gold Floor, which we highly recommend for a hotel within a hotel. The rooms were very spacious, with a great bed and lovely amenities. The staff were super helpful and very attentive. We loved the locale of this hotel. Highly recommend it.
