Fodor's Expert Review Hotel Grand Pacific
463 Belleville St., James Bay, Victoria, British Columbia, V8V 1X3, Canada
The city's biggest and best health club (with a 25-meter indoor lap pool, yoga classes, squash courts, and state-of-the-art equipment), a great spa, complimentary bikes to ride, 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, balconies, and a chic monochromatic color scheme. 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, and perhaps even share with a resting seagull or two. The Pacific Restaurant serves Asian-influenced Pacific Northwest fare and hosts a popular high tea.
