Historic Hotel in Historic Victoria
This is a historic hotel in downtown Victoria. We enjoyed that but not the stairs. The room had two chairs, a desk and one end table. There was a refrigerator but no microwave. There was no hair dryer or a place for soap and shampoo in the shower. There was no air conditioning but there were three windows for a cool breeze and a view. The location was good, we just walked a couple blocks to the historic part of town. There was parking but it took us a couple tries before a space was available. We had dinner in the restaurant below the hotel. The food was good.

Good hotel!
Our room was nice & clean & the bathroom was well supplied and clean. There is no elevator in the building so if you have troubles with steps this could be a problem. I was lucky--my husband is strong so he carried my suitcase up the front steps. And then we rec'd a room on the main level. And the restaurant was excellent!! The service was great & the food was great!! And also reasonable prices. We'll come back again.
