Very close to Victoria Film Festival
I was attending the Victoria Film Festival and the hotel was just across the street from one of the main venues, The Vic, which was excellent, especially after dark walking over and back by myself. Staff was nice, low-key and helpful. Oh and the warm chocolate chip cookie upon check-in was great. There was a pub on the lower level that looked awesome with great music, but I did not get a chance to try it, maybe next time. The free breakfast buffet was nice. I liked the suite because it actually had a bedroom door separating it from the living room area, and the bedroom had its own TV. Extra security on the door to the room was great; it was a flappy thing that prevented someone from entering in addition to the deadbolt. I also liked the fact that the door key card did not have to be swiped, all you had to do was touch it to the lock, because lots of times at other hotels the magnetic strip just stops working midway through your stay.
