Fodor's Expert Review Hotel Rialto

653 Pandora Ave. , Victoria, British Columbia, V8W 2G1, Canada

This historic Downtown landmark has been transformed into a 21st-century boutique hotel. Marble, hardwood, and tapestries reflect a subtle Italian theme in the public areas, while rooms blend two eras with their high ceilings, crown moldings, and chic black-and-cream color scheme. Heated floors and soaker tubs make the roomy bathrooms feel especially luxe. The hotel has been renovated to high environmental standards and guests are encouraged with small rewards for going green by foregoing housekeeping. The hotel's Veneto Tapa Lounge is a stylish spot for small plates and cocktails.
