Set on a corner block in the heart of downtown Victoria–just two blocks from bustling Inner Harbour–this streamlined 64-room stay offers the intimacy of a boutique inn with the amenities of a luxury business hotel. Rooms are tastefully decorated in a muted color scheme of silver, grey, and charcoal, and every bathroom features marble surfaces galore and a deep soaking tub. After a day spent exploring the city, return to the Magnolia Spa for a hot stone or scalp and neck massage, before heading to Catalano Restaurant & Cicchetti Bar for Mediterranean-inspired small plates and rustic main dishes.
In the Area
Put on your walking shoes and head out to explore cosmopolitan Victoria. First stop: the country’s oldest Chinatown, situated in a few blocks around Store and Government streets. Stroll it on your own or join a tour like Old Chinatown to find out more about this living museum, which includes novelties like Fan Tan Alley, the city’s narrowest street. Browse a wide range of teas at Silk Road Tea Store, which also stocks natural beauty products, then stock up on Asian treasures at Chintz & Company, which carries everything from exotic textiles to delicate ceramics. Recharge at Foo Food on flavor-filled noodle and curry dishes inspired by Asian street stalls.
How to Get There
A perfect size hotel that meets all your needs.
Very accommodating staff that anticipates your needs. The restaurant is excellent for breakfast and
Dinner. Spencer who works the front desk and lobby was excellent. Do try this special place in the heart of Victoria
Amazing service with a first class hotel! This hotel is perfectly located, so it was a short shuttle ride from the docks. It is also close to the touring buses, the Royal BC Museum, the Parliament Building, shopping opportunities and restaurants. We arrived at the hotel after taking the ferry from Seattle at about 11 am, and the staff at the front desk was very helpful and accommodating. They stored our luggage while we grabbed lunch and did the hop on - hop off bus tour of Victoria. The lobby had fruit infused water, coffee and tea, which was much appreciated, and the staff was able to answer all our questions. And talk about personalized service - when we arrived back at the hotel, we found our room perfectly set up for four women on a girls trip with enough coffee, shower and hair items, four apples, and later that evening for the turn-down service four pieces of chocolate.
We enjoyed our room with 2 queen beds, and when we discovered we didn’t have a room with a view, the staff moved us to a room across the hall. They did everything possible to make us feel pampered and cared for while we enjoyed their beautiful city. The beds were comfortable and the rooms were quiet.
Because we made our reservations directly with the hotel, the four of us enjoyed a continental breakfast each morning. I am a celiac, and I was pleasantly surprised that I could enjoy gluten-free toast with my breakfast. It was wonderful. We also enjoyed fine dining at the Courtney Room, located on site. After a day of touring, it was great to enjoy a first class meal right on site.
When I return to Victoria, I will return to the Magnolia Hotel!
Quiet too despite being busy. Very close proximity to shopping on Government and Douglas Streets. Tourist information building located within easy walking distance. Victoria Harbour within 3 blocks of Hotel. Water taxi will ferry you to various stops within the harbour. Float planes available for your sightseeing pleasure pilots provided too.
