« false advertising for deluxe queen room-- »

misleading and Disappointed. This was not the room I expected. It was way overpriced. the room was not real queen size beds, they were industrial queen, which is what the front desk told me after I called to question this. I find this ridiculous. I would never have stayed at the fairmont if I hadn't thought I was getting 2 real size queen beds. very very disappointed and will not recommend your hotel to any friends or family.

« Beautiful hotel in a beautiful location - with the most comfortable bed I've ever slept in »

Short stay - most enjoyable.

« Good »

I thought parking was $17 for an over night? And the pet fee should be for the entire stay not everyday $25, since got no housekeeping or turn down service. So a bit dissatisfied with the extra costs associated with staying for the two days. But in positive, thebell man was great, very patient once my dog found out he has treats.

Anonymous Couples - 15/10/2018 AccorHotels certified review

Excellent. We stayed one night the next weekend as well. The only suggestion we have is to ask if parking is required at the time of check in.

« Nice, some improvements required »

Nice renovations, some damage needs repairing. Bengal room not open was a disappointment. Overall nice stay.

Carol Families - 14/10/2018 AccorHotels certified review

Great room with fantastic view and room for 2 adults and 2 kids. Gold lounge staff was a disappointment. They were either indifferent or seemed put out by our presence and made lounge visits uncomfortable.

« Impressive. »

All quite impressive. Bathroom was a little small, but what else can you expect from an old hotel. Also the mattress didn't have a lot of support. Everything else was definitely up to the expected standard

« Nice »

Staff was very friendly and helpful. Room and facilities were clean. Room near us checked out at 6:00 am and it was very loud with family and bell hop putting bags on cart and door opening and closing repeatedly

« Glad we tried it out, probably won’t be back »

We come to Victoria each year and have stayed at different hotels. My family came to visit so we splurged for the Empress, a junior suite. My family was in room 830 with a full view of the harbor, they loved it. My husband and I were in 692, tucked back in the hotel with a side view. It was nice but not a full view of the harbor, and my husband ended up sitting near the elevator to watch the sea planes. I’d called in advance trying to discuss the rooms but it’s a large impersonal hotel and that wasn’t possible. Let us know if you ever allow people to choose more about their room (e.g. view of sea planes)...we would pay more for this. Otherwise we’ll plan to stay somewhere else and just come for tea.

A great birthday get away.

« Beautiful rooms, terrific food, amazing service »

We had a lovely stay starting with an upgrade to a view room. The rooms are spacious with a fantastic bathroom and cool calming palette. We had drinks and snacks in the Q bar which were delicious while listening to some great live music. I look forward to coming back

« We loved the atmosphere and being down town and close to everything. »

We had so much fun exploring the hotel, having high tea and being tourists in Victoria. We were celebrating our 60th birthdays and the hotel was our perfect host.

« Family vacation went well ,but noise in the hallway made it so both rooms 215 and 216 could not sleep. »

The check in went well, friendly service and clean rooms. Are complaint was the noise in the hallway made it so we could not sleep.

« Great hotel , poor service , staff not welcoming »

Booked two rooms together one suite and one room , 585 and 587, when we got there no setup was ready , called house keeping , one young guy helped us to settle in the room. Not a single bottle of water in room , no turndown service , no door stoppers so we can leave the doors open as we had two kids with us. Royal service person (Lynn? ) very disrespectful and abrupt, does not agree with me that there is PLATINUM class of loyality members as we wanted to check out bit later. Awesome hotel but poor staff service , awful lounge but good bar tenders. High tea staff (preterm) feels entitled , does not treat guests with respect. Not many choices to eat as family in restaurant. Was refused to take dinner reservation so went outside the hotel for dinner.

« Great stay, as always »

Fairmont Gold floor was wonderful - the concierge had left a piece of birthday cake in the room for my wife, as well as chocolates. Very friendly and helpful staff.

« Fantastic! Relaxing & Tasty! »
