Fodor's Expert Review Inn at Laurel Point
680 Montreal St., James Bay, Victoria, British Columbia, V8V 1Z8, Canada
A seaside Japanese garden, a museum-quality art collection, and water views from every room make this Asian-inspired independent hotel on the Inner Harbour's quiet south shore a favorite among Victoria regulars. Rooms—especially in the Arthur Erickson–designed southern wing—are light and airy, with blond wood and Asian touches; all have balconies, and some have large harbor-view decks. In-room spa services, free local calls, and an indoor pool are among the pluses, and the Aura restaurant is one of the city's best. Note that your room key comes with discounts to selected attractions.
