Chateau Victoria Hotel: What Every Traveller Needs to Know

Guests at the Chateau Victoria Hotel enjoy a central location in the heart of town, close to major downtown attractions and the waterfront. Within an easy couple minute walk, you will find the Royal BC Museum, The Robert Bateman Centre, the British Columbia Parliament Buildings, Miniature World and the Bug Zoo. If shopping for unique art, clothing, gifts and souvenirs is on your list, you will find it here. Try Government Street or one of the numerous squares and alleys lined with local boutiques. 

Is ping pong your thing? Chateau Victoria is just one block from Victoria's somewhat controversial outdoor ping pong table. The controversy comes from the cost that some taxpayers found frivolous. The city is expanding its pedestrian friendly vibe and the table was installed as part of a new downtown plaza. You'll have to pop into the Doubletree Hotel across the street to pick up a pair of paddles to use (unless you happen to travel with yours!). 

The hotel is home to two renowned establishments. The first is Vista 18 Westcoast Grill & Wine Bar on the 18th floor. The panoramic views from this location are spectacular, as is the food. The other is Clive’s Classic Lounge located on the lobby level. Clive's consistently receives accolades for their perfectly prepared cocktails. You can't go wrong with either - or both!

As for sleeping accommodations, Chateau Victoria has a few options including traditional guest rooms on the lower 3 levels, suites with balconies in the middle of the hotel and penthouse suites on the 16th and 17th floors.

Guest Comments

Guests at Chateau Victoria give an overall rating of excellent. They remark that the staff are friendly and helpful, and the rooms and property clean. The location is awesome. Guests appreciate the doggie amenities that include towels, treats, bowls, bedding and poop bags. While the hotel is air conditioned, it may not be as efficient as some guests would prefer. Some people found the WiFi too slow and there was a lack of parking and parking spots a little tight. 

We hope you enjoy your stay in beautiful Victoria BC.
