Stunning Building that Captures the Bygone Era

The Fairmont Empress sits regally on the banks of Victoria's Inner Harbour and is regarded as the place to stay whilst in Victoria. The architecture of this stunning building captures the essence of a bygone era. Even if you don't stay here, the coveted English ritual of afternoon tea and scones is an institution that can't be missed. From exhilarating ocean bound whale watching safaris, world class cultural exhibits and mouth watering local cuisine to scenic garden and winery tours, you will be awestruck by the countless experiences Victoria and The Fairmont Empress have to offer! We highly recommend it!

Nice people but the rest substandard, I booked a suite and the room smelled like cigarette smoke, bathroom was tiny so everything in the bathroom was tiny, room service menu was substandard, the gym was from the 90's.

Fabulous experience

Danville, California

The location was awesome, service was great, food was delicious. The location is fabulous for tourists. We can't say enough about this hotel. It was a good decision to stay there and we would do it again.
