Happy times at Fairmont Empress

Anna T on Feb 24, 2024

All staffs are very professional and polite to me, especially Justine at front desk and Mike at door bell taking care of my luggage. Everything in hotel is very beautiful. I enjoyed the hot tub because the water in it was very good temperature and very clean. Towels in Hot tub and bedroom are both clean.

A Haven of Luxury and Impeccable Service:

Brian B on Feb 19, 2024

As a long standing customer with Fairmont, I was once again impressed by staying at the The Empress hotel. Upon arrival, I was greeted by the front desk staff, whose attention to detail and genuine hospitality immediately made me feel welcome. The check-in process was seamless, with every request anticipated and catered to with utmost efficiency. The accommodations at the Empress are nothing short of exquisite. My room exuded an air of elegance, with amazing furnishings, tasteful decor, and state-of-the-art amenities that exceeded my expectations. The attention to comfort and luxury was evident in every aspect of the room, from the sumptuous bedding to the lavish bathroom adorned with premium toiletries. My one criticism was that the Body gel in the bathroom was very low and was not filled after I asked for it to be refilled. Thankfully, two bars of soap was my alternative. Beyond the accommodations and delectable cuisine, it was the exceptional service that truly sets The Empress hotel apart from other hotels in the Victoria area. The staff went above and beyond in the Gold Lounge and Q Bar to ensure that every need was met promptly and with a smile. Overall, my experience at The Empress Hotel surpassed all expectations and left an indelible impression. From the luxurious accommodations to the unparalleled service, every aspect of my stay was nothing short of perfection.
