    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!

    Hotel Grand Pacific


    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.

    "The constant tramp of feet and barking dogs was a distraction. To feed the pups meant that both parents had to fight the seals and the gulls for fish."
