Fodor's Review

Across the Johnson Street Bridge from downtown Victoria, this waterfront resort has all sorts of amenities, from tennis and squash courts to a popular spa, an around-the-clock gym, and a waterfront walking path. Rooms, many with views across the water to the Parliament buildings, are spacious and airy. Gadget geeks, take note: you can plug all your electronics into the sleek integrated "smart desks." Conferences play a big role here, though kids are made welcome with check-in

treats, discounted meals, and evening story time. The hotel's restaurant, Lure, offers fresh local seafood, upscale bar bites, and expansive harbor views.

What a view!

The Delta Victoria Ocean Pointe Resort is a lovely hotel, very accomodating for families with children and nice for those without. The Victorian Restaurant is CLOSED, however, so make reservations for dinner elsewhere.

Gives the Empress a run for its money

The room was terrific, beyond our expectations. This has to be one of the best Delta hotels in the country (and my wife and I have stayed in them from coast to coast). Check in was a breeze. The room was very comfortable, with feather pillows and thick carpeting. The view was great, and the window even opened! Although we didn't have enough time to use the indoor pool, we did watch the sunset from "Rick's", the bar lounge (where my wife had a

terrific desert). Again, service was great! There's a shoe polishing machine on the 8th floor which I wish I could have taken home with me, and there's a full service SPA and both a restaurant and a bar on the premises. My wife wants me to point out that the ESSENTIEL ELEMENTS line of amenities in the bathroom are no longer carried - the hotel now stocks its own DELTA line of bath products (which are just average). This hotel is right on the water, on the opposite side of the harbour from the Empress. Having stayed there too, it's hard to decide which one to recommend more. The prices here are definitely cheaper (rooms and parking), but it's just a little off the beaten trail. 5 minute walk though, and you're in the heart of downtown Victoria.

Great view, great room, but at a price.

Had a really great room with view straight over harbour. Staff very helpful, friendly and efficient. Food was fine though expensive.

Comfort Away from Downtown

Our room was small, but clean. The view was a construction site. We may have been put there due to a good internet special. The facility was decent. Food was expensive. Spa was good. It was across the bay from downtown, but the walk was not too bad. Better to bike it.

Beautiful place to stay

We had a deluxe room with a partial ocean view. The room was large and comfortable, and the bathroom spacious. There's even a mini-kitchen, including stove and dishware, if you want to prepare your own meals. One of the best things about the hotel is its surroundings: there's a walking path along the harbour that you should not miss. There's also a great spa. My husband and I each got a massage by Nicole - although she's not an RMT, she's definitely

one of the best massage therapists we've encountered. The toiletries in the bathroom are from the spa. Once you try them, you'll want to purchase them for home. The fitness centre is great - it's a mini-gym away from home, better than what you'll find at the Empress or the Laurel Point Inn. Of course, you'll have to share the facilities with local seniors who use the fitness centre as their regular gym. What's not so great? The food. The breakfast is definitely below Delta's standards. Save your appetite and walk (or take the harbour ferry) into downtown for your breakfast. Also, the Victorian Restaurant, the fine dining establishment at the Ocean Pointe, is closed until spring. Bottom line is: make sure you're not coming for the food. But if you want an elegant hotel that's away from the touristy downtown, yet still in walking/ferry distance, this is the place for you.
