Fodor's Expert Review Villa Marco Polo Inn

1524 Shasta Pl., off St. Charles St. , Victoria, British Columbia, V8S 1X9, Canada

A classical European garden with a stone terrace, reflecting pool, and fountains is all part of the Tuscan-hideaway feel at this 1923 Italian Renaissance–style manor. Fireplaces, duvet-topped king beds, double-soaker tubs, Persian carpets on hardwood floors, and extraordinary art pieces from the Silk Road—along with preloaded iPods with docking stations—grace each of the sumptuous rooms. The most romantic, though, are the Persia suite with its canopy bed and garden view, and the Zanzibar suite with its bay window and Juliette balcony. In-room spa treatments and a lavish breakfast add to the pampering.
