Occupying an idyllic spot right on Victoria's Inner Harbour, the stately Fairmont Empress promises guests an unforgettable stay on Vancouver Island.
Situated in downtown Victoria on British Columbia's Vancouver Island, the iconic Fairmont Empress has graced a thousand postcards. Guests can expect comfortable rooms, a full service spa and authentic old world charm alongside contemporary style in the newly renovated restaurant and bar.
Very much the 'grand old lady' of Victoria, the Fairmont Empress is an imposing hotel which, strangely enough, is perhaps most famous for it's afternoon tea. Since opening in 1908 the hotel has sold traditional afternoon teas and has also played host to many celebrity and royal guests from around the world.
The hotel itself features 464 well-appointed guest rooms offering harbour and city views and 24hr in-room dining. For those who prefer a little atmosphere to accompany their meal the recently re-opened restaurant and bar is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, serving a contemporary menu in somewhat regal surroundings. The spa, health club and pool offer guests a chance to relax or burn off some calories, whilst the hotel's location on the waterfront lends itself to picturesque walks and plenty of photos.
