Recent visitors offer glowing reviews not only for the resort's gastronomy, but also for its accommodations, service and activities. If you're looking to unwind, consider scheduling a treatment at the Healing Grounds Spa.

    Fairmont Empress
    Victoria, CA
    #5 in Best Hotels in Victoria & Vancouver Island
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 4497 reviewsTripAdvisor (4497)

    A landmark in its own right, the Fairmont Empress Hotel is easily recognized by its old-fashioned facade. The elegant building (a National Historic Site of Canada) draped in emerald green ivy opened its doors in 1908 and was designed by the same architect of the Parliament Buildings nearby. Plus, a $60 million renovation completed in 2017 has restored the hotel's interior to its former glory. Accommodations are outfitted with king- or queen-sized beds and offer views of the city, courtyard or the Inner Harbour, though recent guests said the bathrooms are on the smaller side. The Gold level luxury rooms and suites include continental breakfast, free evening hors d'oeuvres and cocktails and access to a private lounge. During your stay, step back in time and embrace the Victorian tradition of afternoon tea at the hotel. For other eats on-site, head to The Q at the Empress, which serves locally sourced Pacific Northwest cuisine. After your meal, indulge in a relaxing Willow Stream Spa treatment, also recently renovated. And if you're a Le Club AccorHotels program member and choose to stay here, you'll be able to earn frequent flier miles.

    Occupying a romantic 1930s Tudor mansion, Abigail's Hotel is an intimate, 23-room property ideal for couples (no children younger than 13 are allowed). Reflecting the charm that pervades Victoria, rooms are appointed with seasonal flowers, fresh cookies, iPod docking stations, free Wi-Fi access and, in the premiere Sapphire rooms, a wood-burning fireplace and antique chandeliers. While Abigail's doesn't have its own on-site restaurant, recent visitors say the complimentary three-course breakfast and evening hors d'oeuvres make up for the absence of midday and evening meal service. But if you're hankering for something more substantial, downtown Victoria's restaurants and quaint shops sit just a mile northwest of the hotel. Recent guests say a leisurely stroll by Victoria's Inner Harbour makes for a relaxing evening. Though they rave about the hotel's location and charming atmosphere, previous guests say the staff's attention to detail shines above all else.

    Sitting pretty along Cox Bay in Tofino on Vancouver Island's west coast, the Long Beach Lodge Resort has garnered a reputation for its quiet setting and gorgeous scenery. Recent visitors say the gracious staff and two-bedroom cottages (which come appointed with gas fireplaces, kitchens and private patios and hot tubs) are both compelling reasons to plan a return stay. Even if you're not willing to splurge on a spacious cottage, you'll still find amenities — like deep soaking tubs and sumptuous duvets — in the standard guest rooms, oceanview rooms, pacific penthouse suites and deluxe beachfront rooms. When you're ready to step outside, you can sign up for a surf lessons at the on-site Surf Club, sea kayak along Clayoquot Sound or enjoy a scenic stroll along Cox Bay's mile-long sandy strip. Afterward, delight in an "après surf" cocktail and intimate meal at the Great Room, which previous patrons compliment for its top-notch cuisine and service.

    The Victoria Marriott Inner Harbour's location in downtown Victoria – within walking distance to many of the city's top sites like the Parliament Buildings and the Craigdarroch Castle – is its main draw. The hotel sits a few blocks back from the Inner Harbour's waterfront and guests say it provides more affordable lodging than other properties in the area. Previous visitors note that they're consistently greeted with clean accommodations and comfortable beds, along with minifridges, flat-screen TVs, free Wi-Fi access and expansive floor-to-ceiling windows. When you're not exploring the city, you can enjoy time at the hotel's indoor pool and whirlpool. And if you work up an appetite, the property's Fire & Water Fish and Chophouse restaurant will satiate your hunger with a variety of fresh seafood dishes. Though some recent visitors do lament the hotel's steep parking fees ($16 CAD daily), most travelers agree the hotel offers an excellent value. Plus, Marriott Bonvoy members can earn and use points here.

    Inn at Laurel Point
    Victoria
    #13 in Best Hotels in Victoria & Vancouver Island
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 2465 reviewsTripAdvisor (2465)
    Free WiFi

    A quiet and comfortable Japanese-inspired atmosphere welcomes guests at the Inn at Laurel Point. Situated along the Inner Harbour, this hotel is close to many of Victoria's top attractions and just steps from the Victoria Clipper Ferry dock. All rooms come with balconies, complimentary Internet access and minifridges, but some previous visitors say there is a stark difference between the standard accommodations in the Laurel Wing and the more luxurious suites in the Erickson Wing. Some past guests call the basic Laurel rooms outdated, describing the balconies as small and the views mediocre. If you're looking for a swankier stay, book a room in the Erickson Wing, which offers spacious studios and suites, deep soaking tubs and the best views of the harbor, according to previous travelers. Japanese gardens — complete with an herb garden and a waterfall — surround the property. The hotel's Japanese influence carries over to flavor in dishes at the restaurant, AURA. If you have some time to relax, you can do so at the pool or with an in-room spa treatment.

    Situated about 10 miles northwest of the city, The Westin Bear Mountain Golf Resort & Spa is a remote resort village spanning 1,300 acres and featuring two Nicklaus Design 18-hole golf courses and 156 accommodations. Recent guests compliment this Westin's comfortable beds, spacious rooms and mountain lodge-like feel (complete with lobby and in-room wooden paneling). All rooms come with queen- or king-sized Westin Heavenly beds, deep soaking tubs, a kitchenette or fully equipped kitchen and free Internet access. Golfers praise the lush greens and attentive staff on both on-site golf courses. If you're not a golfer, you can relax at the Sante Spa with a body wrap or a massage. Cap off your evening with food and cocktails at one of the three hotel eateries. Previous patrons particularly praise the intimate ambiance at The Cellar, which offers private dining for 10 to 20 guests, as well as wine tastings on Friday evenings. This destination is farther away from Victoria's main attractions, so you'll need to rent a car or catch a taxi to reach the city's center. And because this hotel is part of the Marriott hotel family, Marriott Bonvoy members can earn and use points here.

Located in Ucluelet on Vancouver Island, this hotel's modern decor and clean, tidy accommodations delight guests as well. Black Rock Oceanfront Resort offers studios and one- and two-bedroom suites, all of which include kitchens, gas fireplaces and complimentary Internet access; bathrooms feature heated floors, deep soaker tubs and separate showers. While Fetch Restaurant is on the premises, travelers warn the menu is limited and rather pricey. Instead, save your money for a rejuvenating massage or facial at the Drift Spa, which previous visitors say is well worth the splurge.
