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 great room in the Erickson wing. They were doing renovations but that did not disturb us at all. The staff were all friendly and helpful. The room was awesome. We will definitely stay here again. Truly a gem.
The unique architecture caught my eye.
Plus the location was not far from the port as we arrived by ferry.
If there were lots of guests, we didn't know ?
Rooms were clean, spacious, comfy.
With the construction there were no vending machines for water but, the front desk sold some.
( **** remember the exchange rate)
From the lobby to the rooms was somewhat of a maze..this wing..down to another around this corner...
Overall, the stay was fine. The staff was pleasant and helpful.
Apart from regeneration work causing disruption the service was non existent no bar or restaurant and one tea bag in upgraded room. Attended for breakfast to be told it was only for the convention going on and we should have ordered room service breakfast which nobody had told us. No soft pillows in superior room as promised and building work noise began 7.30 am. Just a room little else. When I complained I was offered a discount which is available for anyone! Unbelievable!
My girlfriend's birthday was on the 18th, so I figured this would be a nice way to treat her out. Yes the room was very nice. But we were not in there for very long before heading out for dinner. After coming back from dinner I became extremely ill. We went to the front desk to see if we could check out and get s possible refund or even partial credit because I needed medical attention. The night manager said there is nothing they can do. After being sick for 5 hours, we had to leave. I left an email for the day manager to contact me about the situation. The day manager said there is nothing they can do. The hotel wasn't even full. We only saw a handful of people. It is not like we didn't like the room and wanted to go elsewhere. I really thought that under certain circumstances they can make exceptions. I understand that me getting food poisoning isn't there issue or concern but I thought that since we live in the city we would be returning back to the hotel next time for a special occasion if they made an effort to partially cover some of the costs since the room was $400/night. I just very disappointed in the customer service. It wouldn't have cost them hardly anything at all to comp out a room for a night. Oh well, we will never stay there again. Even though the room was nice. Now all my friends know what has happened, not impressed.
Was a good choice. There currently is construction in the area however noise is monitored and doesn’t start early morning, and overall it was not overly disruptive. Will affect a few hotels in the area.
