Fodor's Expert Review Magnolia Hotel & Spa
623 Courtney St., Victoria, British Columbia, V8W 1B8, Canada
From the on-site spa to the soaker tubs, sauna, and herb tea, this locally owned boutique hotel, without actually saying so, caters beautifully to the female traveler—though the attention to detail, hop-to-it staff, and central location won't be lost on men either. Rooms are large, with tall windows, soft colors, and lots of natural light; some have gas fireplaces. All the high-end details—duvets, turndown service, room service, and valet parking—are here, too. Check out the themed walking and cycling maps to explore the city (e.g., shopping, food) and free use of bicycles. The hotel's Catalano Restaurant serves locally sourced Mediterranean fare in a lively setting. Book directly with the hotel, online, and breakfast is included.
