First built in the 1970s, this Modernist-style hotel has had several face-lifts over the years, and the general vibe today is one of streamlined minimalism, with a recently updated wing designed by well known Canadian architect Arthur Erickson. Guest rooms feature light maple furniture and an autumnal palette, with floor-to-ceiling windows providing stunning views of Victoria Harbour on three sides. The 66-seater restaurant Aura has a waterfront indoor dining room and 58-seat patio, where you can dine on heart-warming dishes like Thai-style shellfish broth and chicken pot pie.
In the Area
Get out on beautiful Victoria Harbour with Ocean River, an outfitter known for their kayaking tours and classes. Back on dry land, book a table at the Superior Street Bistro, just opposite Fisherman’s Wharf, and tuck into an eclectic menu from chef Justin Grenda–he even does a playful take on Canada’s edible treasure, poutine. Work off the calories with a stroll around Fisherman’s Wharf, a colorful micro-neighborhood of floating homes, cafes, and boats offering eco-tours.
How to Get There
Had a lovely 1 night stay here while touring in the area. Wish we had more time to spend there. Walking distance from the dock and to to downtown area and Fishermans Warf . Right on the water with nice views.
Went to Canada for the first time and stayed at the Inn at Laurel Point. Our room was amazing and overlooked James Bay where we could watch the ferry and float planes come in. Yes, they are having construction and we overlooked that also but that did not bother us. The staff was very helpful and friendly. We would definitely stay there again.
The Inn has very good service and the location can’t be beat. It’s pricey but most nice hotels in downtown Victoria are. The pool is small and the outdoor space adjacent to the pool is OK. The older rooms definitely need to be updated. We eventually moved to a newer suite. No view but much nicer!
We’ve been staying here for many years and it remains our first choice when we come to Victoria
They are true to there mission statement about being locally owned and green!!
We always feel that welcoming spirit!
We look forward to many more visits in th future
The hotel will be nice once their renovations are complete, but be warned.. some of the guest rooms are unusable during the day due to construction noise. I was legitimately shocked at how loud the construction noise was. We had planned to relax in our rooms before heading out for dinner, but this was impossible. The front desk did not offer any solutions and just said the noise would end by 5pm.
