When you stay in a Victoria hotel, you're never far from the ocean. And Victoria is the perfect size for walking, so wherever you stay will provide you good access to the city. Set on Victoria's downtown waterfront, Fairmont Empress is one of Canada's most elegant and historic hotels. Hand-carved mahogany wood gleams throughout much of the hotel and in particular the dining room. Though Harbour Towers Hotel and Suites has a few standard rooms, the one- and two-bedroom suites with fully equipped kitchens are a better value. In 1988, Swans Suites Hotel was turned into a hotel, restaurant, brewpub, and nightclub. Located near the Johnson Street Bridge, it's just minutes from Bastion Square, Chinatown, and downtown. Or you can unwind and relax in the historic Abbeymoore Manor Bed and Breakfast Inn of Victoria. It's hard to go wrong - you will have a relaxing stay in whatever hotel you choose in Victoria.
