James young couple September 22, 2023
Gretchen young couple September 21, 2023
Positives: Absolutely the BEST place to stay in Victoria, B.C. In the tradition of timeless beautiful & elegant 'grande dame' hotels, THE EMPRESS STILL RULES - located on her own huge expanse of gorgeously gardened manicured grounds (the entire block), presiding over the picturesque small city in a perfect location at wide end of charming boat & float plane harbor and within easy walking distance to everywhere you'd want to see, visit & eat in Victoria. The Empress has no competition on the entire island of Vancouver that even compares (probably not in all of Canada - but cannot confirm that). Stunning spacious & perfectly maintained interiors, with finely appointed, recently updated & spotlessly clean rooms, helpful, hardworking & nice staff and a stylish & beautiful restaurant (that has lovely outside seating with perfect view), stunningly chic, fun & busy bar, and great food throughout hotel. Absolute PERFECTION -- every aspect of The Empress is OUTSTANDING!
