The city's best health club (with yoga classes, squash courts, and state-of-the-art equipment) and a prime Inner Harbour location appeal to savvy regulars, including Seattleites stepping off the ferry across the street. Feng shui design elements apply throughout, lending a calm energy to the gleaming marble lobby. Rooms are large and surprisingly quiet, with deep soaker tubs, floor-to-ceiling windows, and traditional furnishings. Upper-floor rooms have views of the harbor,
the Parliament Buildings, or the mountains, which you can admire from your private balcony, big enough to sit out on. The Pacific Restaurant serves an interesting contemporary dim sum lunch on weekends.

My husband and I just returned from 3 days at the Grand. Our room had a balcony with a great view of the harbour and easily fit the 2 chairs provided. Watching the ships come and go, along with the tourists below, was fun. Staff were very friendly, and the 2-for-1-breakfast buffet was very good. The room was of adequate size since most of our stay we were out walking. We did get a great deal and paid around $150/night. It was also very quiet
at night. We will definitely go back to the Grand.

My wife & I enjoyed our stay at this hotel. The room was very neat & clean & the service was very efficient. We did not dine at the hotel so can't report on that but everything else was satisfactory. Next time we go to Victoria this is the hotel we will book.

A horrible hotel experience. The service was the worst that I have experienced, even at much less expensive hotels. Very overpriced for what it is. The staff is untrained at any form of customer courtesy and even honest answers. Do yourself a favor and pick the Empress if you want to spend that kind of bucks,or the Gatsby run by Ramada is a real cute Victorian Inn close by.We had a great lunch there.
