      Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Grand Pacific Victoria

      Hotel Grand Pacific best location


      Was in Victoria over July 4th holiday, and chose the Hotel Grand Pacific for a 3-night stay, and got good rates through Trip Advisor's SmartDeals. Travelled with my husband and parents and on check-in was told we had adjoing rooms. "Great!" I said. Then on further reflection, asked if it would be possible to have NON adjoining rooms. The deskperson was extremely polite and accommodating, and said he'd see what he could do. We ended up getting a room on the top (10th) floor in the West wing, which the bellman whispered to me was the best room in the house, the biggest standard room they had, and he was right. It was quite large, and had a view looking directly at the Empress, and overlooking the Inner Harbor. Though the room was huge, the bathroom was pretty small, but had polished granite counter top and tub surround, and an extra sink outside the bathroom; luxurious towels and aromatherapy bath amenities; a framed, bevelled-glass mirror and wall sconce lighting. The king-size bed was very comfortable, though the sham and duvet smelled musty. On the other hand, my parents were in their original room, which was on the top (6th) floor of the East wing (mom asked to be on the lower floor). For the same price, their room had old, stained carpet, formica counters in the bathroom, one sink and dull lighting that on a glance looked like flourescent. I don't know if all the rooms in the West wing are better, but you might request that, and to be on the top floor if possible. The health club was better than many I've seen in equivalent hotels, with a large pool, a yoga room and several cardio machines; it's actually used by non-guests, too. There's a handy street-level cafe for grabbing food on the go (expensive and skip the muffins) with free internet access on 2 computers if you buy something. The staff could not have been more friendly, courteous and helpful with good suggestions for dining. The location cannot be beat. You're next door to the parliament buildings (but you can't see them from the hotel, and that's something you must walk out and see at night, when they're outlined in white lights), and just 2 blocks from the Empress. We only got in the car once while we were there. Please make this your first consideration for lodging if you can find a good deal. I didn't see anywhere else I would have rather stayed for the location!

      Great Hotel


      We just returned from a 4 day stay in Victoria at the Hotel Grand Pacific. It is a beautiful hotel and

      we were so pleasantly surprised for the price. Location can't be beat. Staff is wonderful and makes you feel appreciated and special. Wouldn't

      stay anywhere else in Victoria now that we know

      about this Hotel.

      Best hotel in Victoria


      I've stayed at most of the higher end hotels in Victoria for both business and pleasure. Recently I've started staying at the Grand Pacific and it is absolutely my hotel of choice now. The location is fantastic. The pool and fitness facility are among the best I've seen in a hotel (and I've seen a lot). The rooms are very well appointed and comfortable. But it is the attitude and service from the staff that makes me give this hotel my vote. The staff seem genuinely happy and go out of their way to help you. I'll be back.

      Awesome....Great Location!


      We just got back 4/10 from our 2 night stay in Victoria and would have to say the Hotel Grand Pacific was Awesome! We have three kids and they loved the pool! The location for walking around the city and harbor was the best we seen. The Parliment building is just beautiful at night and so are all the lights in the trees in front of the hotel. The rooms are VERY nice and the Bellman and staff are so nice, friendly and were always smiling and ready to help. We plan a return trip and will definitely stay here! Our kids loved it!! We also never met anyone that wasn't very helpful and friendly on our was a great trip!

      Wonderful Hotel


      I stayed at the Grand Pacific in mid-February 2004 and was very pleased. My room was a suite with a view of the Olympic Mountains and the Strait of Juan de Fuca - especially spectacular first thing inn the morning and at sunset.

      Rooms have fine furniture and are well decorated.

      The hotel has excellent facilities, including a very large indoor pool and fitness centre.

      The location is very convenient to the Conference Centre, Royal BC Museum and Legislature.

      Highly recommended!

      Great location


      Great location with wonderful waterfront views. The hotel was clean and nice size room. In walking distance of the city's sights. The Pacific restaurant was slow in service and we ate better food in other restaurants in the city. They do have a great dessert called Molten Chocolate cake. I enjoyed other places to eat at more.Victoria is a great place to visit!

      Great lodging


      Spent five nights at the Grand Pacific. Located next to Victoria's inner harbor, it provided a great base to explore the city and surroundings. Although a bit pricey, the 1-bedroom suite is ideal for a family of four and provided exquisite views of the harbor. Service was pleasant and the meals (several breakfasts and one dinner) were very good. Highly recommended.

      One of Victoria's best


      The facilities are attractive, high-end and modern, it's air-conditioned, the price is reasonable (for a property of this quality) and it's located right on the harbour, a block away from the BC parliament building and about two blocks from the Royal BC Museum (which is a must-see).

      There is a large indoor pool, and the restaurant is very good. The espresso bar provided free Internet access when I was there. I think it's a better value than that historic ivy-covered hotel in town, which I've also stayed at in the past, and is far more personal and friendly.

      It's not a tourist attraction, which means the lobby is not overrun with gawkers, but it's Marriott-comparable quality I'd say.

      Vey Nice


      Excellent hotel. Greta Service, great location right on the harbour and just a very nicely appointed hotel. Rooms are great;spotless and spacious. The Grand Pacific makes a good alternative for those who find the Empress just toooo Victorian!

      Glad we choose this hotel. Upscale! Thought it was outstanding - people were helpful, room was great, location was as good as it gets. Would recommend and stay there again.

      ... beef still go the best in burgers. We asked around about where we could buy some local fish and the publican ended up giving us a free piece of Salmon that fed us both for 2 meals.

      Using Sydney's place as a home base we re-organised and headed up North next. We visited Horne Lake Caves which you can explore some of the caves on your own. They were pretty tight and hard to get through at some points and I have a silly fear in caves as I ...

      ... were quite exhausted. The scenery was awesome! Got a couple of pictures of Mt St Helens. We changed our route to go the east side of Olympic National Forest, when we had planned to take the west side. We ended up in Port Angeles right at 17:30, hoping to catch the ferry to Victoria - just as the ferry was about to close the bay doors. The guys on the dock radioed the ship. They chatted for a sec and said "sorry... you'll have to catch the next one... at 2130). With a 4 hour wait, ...

      One week to go until my trip and the universe handed me an opportunity to put the past behind me once and for all. It started out as a frustration over the last piece of my life that I have not been able to switch over to my control...extended health for my children. Although my ex-husband has coverage for them through his work, I have been unable to actually claim anything back since February of this year, or to even talk to ...

Abby shouted us the entry plus High Tea, which was a magnificent experience in the beautiful old original homestead, set amongst picturesque lawns and trees. The history of the gardens is really interesting too. They were started in the early 1900s by Robert & Jennie Butchart who operated a cement production company in the limestone rich ...
