The Empress Hotel was able to find us a room, with short notice (family emergency). All the staff were so helpful, friendly and very accommodating during our stay. Thank you! Check in and check out was great! Housekeeping was efficient. Room was clean and beds were comfortable. The restaurant team were very helpful and accommodating. Food was delicious and well prepared and presented. Excellent stay, considering our circumstances.
Another wonderful stay at the grand ol'lady of Victoria.

A lovely room upgrade and the privilege of the Gold floor balcony made our 2 days at the Empress a highlight of my family's summer road trip to Vancouver Island. I would like to acknowledge Doug Chant for going above and beyond to take care of us. Thank you!
