Well worth the price of admission

dashing_pilot (Seattle, Washington) on May 25, 2022

The only thing you will complain about with the Empress is the price. Literally everything is perfect. But budget Travellers may find some sticker shock here. It is all worth the price in my opinion. Highly recommend the in hotel bar and restaurants. The service is to notch.

Unforgettable experience!

mcreechkelly (Raleigh, North Carolina) on May 25, 2022

On a recent trip to celebrate a milestone birthday, my husband and I stayed at the Fairmont Empress in Victoria. What a beautiful, historic hotel with lovely service! We had a wonderful experience working with the concierge Deborah Sleno who recommended great restaurants, bars, and activities for us. The Fairmont Empress truly made my birthday an unforgettable experience. We enjoyed breakfast in the restaurant each morning - the pancakes and avocado toast are not to be missed - and our favorite waiter Chris made it even better.
