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
We enjoyed our stay despite there being a soil Remediation project underway literally outside our window. Beautiful views across the harbor. Enjoyed watching the seaplanes, ferries and lights. Spacious room. Huge bath and shower.
One of the best hotel experiences and I travel a lot. Rooms are clean, spacious, and have a great view. Luxurious feel with very welcoming and friendly staff. They went out of their way to provide great service at every turn. My hotel of choice for every Victoria trip.
Each year when we go to Victoria, we stay at the Inn at Laurel Point. It doesn't seem to matter which area of the hotel we are put in, the views are incredible. It is not right in the middle of the downtown core but it is central to many "tourist" attractions. We always go to the Royal Museum and the Imax adjacent to the museum. We usually walk to the museum and can easily walk to some good restaurants. The rooms are clean and comfortable.
We really enjoyed our stay here. There are renovations going on at the moment, which we were aware of. There is also some city work being done nearby. The property itself is well-maintained and in an excellent location. Inner harbour views are spectacular. Because we were not able to access all the public areas I really couldn't give a higher review. We would definitely book here again.
A quick getaway. Staff were attentive and helpful. Room was quiet and comfortable. Food in the dining room was delicious and the wait staff were absolutely wonderful. Great visit despite the construction.Would definitely visit again.
