    Beds were nice and comfortable, Bartenders were great and had suggestions to get value for your money.

    Price was excessive compared to other hotels in the area. Considering the price, wifi was not included.

    I have a problem with the ATM but they did not help me at all. They only said that the ATM is not of the hotel ,but I think they have to be more helpful in this cases.

    Location and views are fantastic. I love these old-style character hotels.

    Not up to the standards of other Fairmont Hotels we've stayed in. They messed up our meal reservations and even messed up the correction, so we never did eat there. Some staff really didn't seem to know what they were doing or could even answer or questions properly and never offered to find anything our or get back to us.

    Nice but not as special as people say

    The rooms are really beautiful.

    The facility is under complete renovation. It wasn't as grand as you'd expect. Although the rooms are super nice, I think for the price there are a million better deals to be had. It's slightly over hyped in my opinion.

    Great venue and staff!

    Had an awesome time at the Empress for our 20th Anniversary. The people everywhere were super helpful and friendly. The location was excellent and within walking distance to so many fun things.

    The afternoon tea was enjoyable but definely over priced.

    I loved the huge comfortable bed, so much that I didn't want to leave it.. The staff were all helpful and polite which I like a lot...

    There was no cold water provided in the room...

    Go for a Fairmont Gold room

    We booked a Fairmont Gold room based on another recommendation and boy was it worth it. The private lounge is spectacular, the concierges were all extraordinary (and made a big difference helping us maximize our 2 nights in Victoria) and the food and drink (including a fully-stocked honor bar) were fabulous. We felt like royalty.

    Stay in Downtown Victoria at the Queen of Hotels

    This historic property welcomes you in the moment you step onto the property. The immediate attendance to your every need is immediately relaxing and makes you feel wanted. The location could not be better with the entire harbor visible form the front and every floor above as you exit your elevator. The entire city downtown is vibrant and easily walkable with something for every tase and experience.t

    The room was a bit warm and may not have had air conditioning. We simply opened the windows and used a portable fan form the oversized closet area.
