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
The location on the waterfront is stunning....the restaurant has a gorgeous sunrise view.
The rooms are spotless, clean and inviting...4th floor harbour view! Wow!
Although the hotel is under some renovation , most affects the outside walkway area. The hotel warned of this inconvenience and they proceeded to make my stay one of the best ever! Such friendly service is so refreshing!....All staff I interacted with went out of there way to be genuinely friendly !
Stayed for two nights. We were advised that they were renovating the lobby when we reserved the room but not the roof. We were rudely awoken at 7:00am by workers just below our room. The first night we had no light in the hallway, the toilet ran consistently, the toilet seat needed tightened as it was moving. The bathroom door was filthy and obviously had not been cleaned for a long time. The counters in the bathroom and hallway were heavily stained. We have stayed there numerous times over 20 years and never had a complaint. They are renovating the lobby but not spending money on old rooms badly in need of upgrades.
Despite the hotel undergoing renovations, check-in was very easy. All of the staff at hotel were very professional and very patient with answering all questions concerning the stay. We had to leave the car in the gated parkade for the duration of the day while attending the conference and the staff at the front desk made a key for access to the parkade even though we checked out earlier in the day.
We were given a room with a view of the harbour. The bed was very comfortable.
Given the price, would highly recommend this hotel.
