Loved the old hotel and great staff! The upgrade to "stay & dine" is the best value in Victoria. Central location, you can park for the duration of your trip without have to use your vehicle again. If it's nice you can walk the town and if not you can walk to the Museum which

Make sure you do not book a room over the nightclub if staying on the weekend. Great club , but can get loud when closing as everyone is grabbing cabs. The location is perfect. Central to everything. Lots to do on site. Right in the middle of downtown. Close to the Royal Museum,

Hello, We have a room type that is fitted with grab bars, but I am not sure it will fit your needs. The doorway into the unit is 32 inches across and the doorway into the bathroom is 29 inches across. The bathrooms are shaped like an L, and their narrowest point across is 29 inches as well. There is room to move in the unit itself, and there is flat access to the lobby from the street into the elevator. However, our lobby doors are not automatic and this could be problematic for you. Please feel free to call the hotel directly should you have any other questions, or if we may be of further assistance.

Are your hotel handicap accessible, rooms, showers?
We hope to have new rooms with a King Bed available this upcoming summer that will have accessible showers. Currently our Premium Quad rooms have support bars in the washroom to help with accessibility however they contain bathtubs rather than showers.

"Don't get rooms by the elevator or ice machine"
"Rooms facing front of hotel very noisy, side street a little better."
"Request a room off Douglas St. otherwise the noise level is unbearable."
