« pricey food and drink without alternative »

« Won't stay again »

Bathrooms too small and the design inconvenient, Charging for wi-fi is ridiculous for a hotel of this caliber.

« Luxurious stay in the heart of Victoria »

The location, service and ambiance of the Fairmont Empress make it a favourite destination in one of our favourite cities in Canada. Check in is efficient, the room amenities are wonderful and we can walk to so many attractions. The summer gardens are second to none.

« My Thoughts »

Our experience was lovely! Every single staff member was extremely welcoming and friendly! We enjoyed several services: the restaurant, the Empress Tea, the valet parking, the turn down and the wonderful cleaning staff. Check in was easy as I completed online and the envelope with key was waiting for me upon arrival. Check out was also easy as I completed online, once again. The bill was correct and emailed promptly. The service was actually incredible and the best I have ever encountered and I have stayed with several luxury hotel chains. Thank you for a wonderful stay!

« Attentive, quality service »

Beautiful hotel in a great location. Concierge, Reception, Bell, Room Service etc- all individuals were well mannered and helpful. Lovely guest room overlooking the harbor. Enjoyable live music in the evenings. Upon occasion, felt service was a little prescriptive/ unnatural.

« weekend with girlfriends »

Although the hotel is beautiful, the rooms were small and bathroom was very small even for one person. No counter space and bathroom fixtures were not up to par. Service persons were excellent and I would give all of them a 10! From front desk, to car attendants and bar server. I did order a hot brandy in the bar and it was not great. I wanted a brandy with a tiny bit of hot water and lemon but it was served as a brandy sitting on top of a glass of hot water which did not warm it. Tiny detail but for feedback, OK. There was no shop for incidentals other than gifts at least none that I saw and all the shops were so high end it was not easy to shop. The locations was fabulous and we were given suggestions and directions from staff that worked well. Thank you for that. There was construction outside of our room which started VERY early. When I asked for upgrade so that we could have larger bathroom was told that hotel was booked. A big hotel like that did not looked booked but I took it as truth.

« Beautiful accommodations »

Loved Winston! Loved the hotel. Great food in the cafe. Whole experience was lovely.

Cindy Couples - 14/03/2019 AccorHotels certified review
« We felt comfortably luxurious. »

The staff was friendly and helpful, but we had a leak in the roof that required a move. Our new room was a suite, so an upgrade, but the new bed was not as comfortable and was a queen size as compared to the incredibly comfy King bed in the first room. The valet forgot about us so we had a bit of a wait getting our car but they were very apologetic and kind, and reduced the parking rate as consolation.

« Wonderful winter getaway »

The people who work here are the star of this hotel’s existence. From Winston, the hotel dog, all the way down the line, the extraordinary level of service and personal touch was comforting.

Parking was easy, comfortable stay, from main elevator to our room was quite far away. But overall comfortable.
