“Perfect location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 May 2012

I love the location of this hotel. It is right in the middle of the tourist area so safe and convenient to all tourist attractions. The view of Parliament (next door) lit up a night is spectacular, and the view of the historic Empress Hotel is beautiful too. The Royal BC museum is just past Parliament, whale watching cruises and water taxis and ferries (Victoria Clipper & Washington State ferries) depart right there from the harbour, and shopping abounds. Couldn't be a better location.

The rooms are comfortable and acceptable. The balconies are a treat. Having comfortable air conditioning, balconies, views from the rooms, and good sized bathrooms makes this hotel far better than the nearby historic hotel that tours flock to (and much better priced). I could watch floatplanes landing on the water from my hotel balcony.

The pool and exercise area is phenomenal. It's actually a health club with paid memberships for locals, free to hotel guests. It's a large indoor swimming pool including lanes for lap swimming, huge hot tub, sauna, full locker rooms with good facilities, and a good sized exercise facility. From the edge of the pool through a window the gold statue of George Vancouver on the top of the Parliament building next door can be seen!

I had considered another hotel across the water, but the location at the Hotel Grand Pacific was much, much better.

Room Tip: Get a room with a view of the harbour or of Parliament.

This past weekend we spent two days/nights at the Hotel Grand Pacific in Victoria, BC and would highly recommend it to anyone travelling to Victoria. We had a suite on the 8th Floor, overlooking Victoria's Inner Harbour and immediately next door to the British Columbia Legislature buildings. The view was spectacular and the day and evening activities around the Inner Harbour (artisans, handicrafts, an exclusive yacht show, street entertainers, etc.) were interesting and entertaining. We also found the dining facilities in the hotel to be well-above-standard, although you do pay a bit extra (and it's worth it).

This hotel will definitely be on our itinerary for our next visit to Victoria.

Keith Davis, Calgary

Room Tip: Try to get a suite with a harbour view. Well worth the extra cost.

An excellant and large well appointed room although the bathroom was a little on the small side. Very welcome to arrive after a long flight to such nice accommodation. The position of the hotel is very handy to the city centre of Victoria BC. Within walking distance to restaurants etc. staff are friendly and helpful.

Had a better sleep in a tent on a air matteress.Lots of street noise as well as inside noise ( banquet hall below room ) parking is a major issue if you have a truck ( max height 6'4"). When I called prior to booking staff advised it would not be a problem, lots of parking on the street for five dollars for two hours between 9am-6pm unless you spent your vacation searching for 1 hour free parking but then you'll risk a ticket. The plus is it's walking distance to lots of restaurants and attractions but with that being said the Holiday Inn is half a block away!
