When on Vancouver Island, Fairmont Empress is the Place to Be

Fairmont Empress

There are high-end hotels, and then there’s the gorgeous Fairmont Empress, a lavish five-star retreat nestled in a place you probably didn’t expect to add to your travel wish list anytime soon.. until now. Found in Victoria, on Vancouver Island, this gorgeous hotel reminds us of a different era in design, when grandiose buildings became landmarks and later pieces of history.

Shading the shores of Inner Harbor since 1908, this spectacular place has been wonderfully restored to its original charm, with a modern health club, a charming indoor pool, and a blissful lobby. Of course, the guest rooms have been beautifully updated as well, with modern touches on a lovely, traditional style, and breathtaking views that will always be there to make your mornings here even more enjoyable.

We also need to mention the Fairmont Gold floor, where a private lounge with an exquisite bar and an attentive concierge team will make sure you’ll remember your stay here as much as possible. Next, you could jump in the charming indoor pool or visit the Willow Stream Spa, which comes with a sauna, hot tub and a cool fitness centre.

And when you’re feeling a little bit hungry, the Bengal Lounge will tease your senses with a renowned curry buffet, while the Empress Room will impress you with a mix of delicacies and serene views. Fairmont Empress returns the elegance of a time long gone to our days, where facilities and service have reached incredible levels of appreciation.
