We were here for a weekend prior to meetings. Parkside was great. Nice spacious rooms, well appointed with kitchen gear, and a full kitchen! We did not use it much as the restaurants around the area were very good. Located close to the Empress hotel but no real view of the harbour. Only reason I did not give 5 stars was the walls were a bit thin at times and a cute baby next to us was a bit fussy. Will return when I am in Victoria again! Parking was reasonably priced for the stay

This is a great place! Love the atrium and the koi pond. The suites are nicely decorated, fairly spacious, and well equipped, including an in-suite washer/dryer and spa robes. Bed is really comfy. If you’re lucky, you’ll have a beautiful view of the park and the old girls’ academy across the street. The weekly rate we’re paying is the best, considering the location and amenities. Any issues we had were graciously, warmly, and quickly dealt with. If I would make some suggestions: every suite should have a full-length mirror (apparently some don’t), and there could be more storage space in the bathroom—maybe put some shelving above the toilet instead of a piece of art? Enjoying our stay here, and expect to return!

Room Tip: Ask for a corner suite.

close to downtown amenities. Few issues - no full length mirror (THIS IS A BIG DEAL TO ME), no fan in bathroom, don't like the air conditioning nor black out curtains. Had to leave balcony doors open to get air flow (security issue) - don't like liquid soap (though I know it's greener!) prefer a bar of soap to shower!!!

Dear KirstenS368,

Thank you for reviewing your recent stay with us on TripAdvisor, we appreciate your feedback for future improvement.

As an environmentally friendly property built to LEED Platinum standards, our hotel does not offer air conditioning. This does not usually present discomfort to our guests, especially during the cooler months. All of our rooms have a series of windows that open to promote air flow, as well as tower fans stored in each closet. Many of our suites now have blackout blinds in the bedroom as they reduce heat and promote a better quality of sleep.

I hope we have the chance to welcome you back on future travels. If so, please feel free to let us know your preferences at the time of reservation as we would be more than happy to ensure you are in a room with a full length mirror and can supply bars of soap in your suite.

Kind Regards,
Ashley Priest
Guest Services Manager

We were 3 couples travelling and needing 3 rooms in Victoria for 1 night. None had ever stayed at the Parkside and we were all impressed with the rooms, facilities and proximity to the downtown area. The neighborhood is just off the beaten track and very quiet . We will be back for our next Victoria stay.

Dear rkgallamore,

It was our pleasure to have you stay with us at The Parkside Hotel & Spa. I am delighted to hear that all three couples travelling were impressed with our suites and hotel facilities. I am also glad that you enjoyed our neighbourhood. We love that our location is tucked away in a quieter area of downtown, yet only a 5 minute walk to Victoria's Inner Harbour.

We look forward to welcoming you back on your next Victoria stay!
