Location, quality, and service - XLNT!
We tried a new hotel this time to get air conditioning included in Victoria, since you may be surprised to find out A/C is not standard in some of the better hotels, only fans. Being closer to the ferry, right behind the Empress was new also to us. We enjoyed being more central to the IMAX, 10 Acres restaurants,and still relatively quiet area. Booked a suite so the balcony and extra room in perfect condition were great for me to read in the bedroom while hubby did stocks in the living room with the TV on. Nice small gym with peek a boo view. Delish chocolate chip cookies on check-in if you don't know this custom of Doubletrees. Very happy we upgraded to this American hotel in B.C. this summer.!
