We were able to check in early and were upgraded to beautiful suites with two balconies and wrap around windows overlooking Victoria's inner Harbour. The staff have all been friendly, accommodating and helpful. The room is so comfortable and the bed is heavenly after a long day sightseeing. The food in The Pacific restaurant is divine, especially the chocolate tart! There is also a cafe open daily serving coffee, light meals and snacks. I have loved staying at the hotel and don't really want to leave. A wonderful hotel!

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!
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.
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 stay....it was a great trip!
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.
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!
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.
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.

Our flight to Victoria from Vancouver was actually only 12 minutes of flying time. The other 12 minutes was in getting out to the runway to take off! Great views of the archipelago as we came in to land and I was on the right side of the plane too!

NB - when we went down to dinner at the hotel grand pacific on the first night, dad saw his suitcase being delivered from the lobby. We were all relieved that he got his suitcase! Monday 16th May after a bit of a sleep in we went next door to Belleville's diner for breakfast. I had Mexican scrambled eggs with guacamole, sour cream, salsa, corn chip …
I was woken up about 5.20am with light streaming through the cracks in the blinds as the sun was rising on a beautiful day, clear and bright. I took some lovely photos of the sunrise. I didn't have breakfast as I thought I might get seasick and I bought a chocolate brownie and water at the Courtyard cafe at the hotel. We all met up at 9am and …
