This is our third visit and the Rialto remains a great choice and value for a centralized boutique hotel in downtown Victoria. The Ventao Lounge continues to be a lively place that serves a suprisingly good Sazarac. Beware of rooms on any floor ending in 05 as they are close to the elevator and noise from hotel patrons intrudes into...

We spent 2 nights at the Rialto. We wanted to see spring in Victoria. Our room was great - large, comfortable, quiet and very clean! We had drinks and appies at the Veneto lounge and ate breakfast both mornings at the Veneto Cafe. Service and food excellent! The attention to detail at the Rialto is terrific. We hope to be...

We stayed for 3 nights after exploring the island & thought it a great place to stay. Easy to find, valet parking and a friendly welcome. We loved the little extras; vouchers for cheese platters, coffee & pastries, not having the room serviced every day. Location is excellent and we spent most of our time on foot. Room was large,...

My husband and I spent two nights at the Hotel Rialto. It's a lovely mid-sized boutique hotel located in the heart of downtown Victoria. Fine restaurants, shopping, museums, parks, and the waterfront are all within walking distance of the hotel. Our room included a kitchen and spacious living area. It was very clean and the beds were very comfortable. Hotel...

I stayed here for a work trip (3 days 2 nights). The staff was friendly, the location was close to everything, the rooms were clean and the beds comfortable. The lounge down stairs was amazing... you have to try a drink there (the mixologist are award winning). Continental breakfast was included... The latte and baked goods, delicious. The Gym was...

What a wonderful place to stay in Victoria! Our entire stay was perfect. The front desk staff were welcoming, and helpful. The room was very clean and quiet. Hallways were also clean and quiet. The cafe in the hotel offered some very tasty breakfast choices. While the meal wasn't covered in the room costs, there were meal vouchers to put...

We stayed for three nights. The staff were very friendly and we were pleasantly surprised by the size of our room and that it seemed to have been recently renovated. We had three excellent breakfasts in the restaurant downstairs.

Great hotel- clean, newly renovated, tasty restaurant, good wifi. Room was spacious. Nice towels and linens. Downsides: limited outlets for charging multiple goodies, and its a tiny thing but how about a shelf for my stuff in the bathroom? Major construction is happening just outside across the street so can be a little noisy, and its a busy street so...

We love the Rialto. Great for adults. Great walking, close to everything and the staff is very attentive. The breakfast and coffee is really good and so is the tapas bar - all in one location, separately run. I like the fact there is a bar fridge for a bottle of wine, or to keep you own snacks. We also...

We were quite happy with this choice- really easy to walk everywhere and it had a lovely light filled breakfast room. We liked the clean modern feel of the place. Free continental breakfast and a coupon toward eggs because we were didn't use the maid service.
