Our second stay at the Embassy was more than we expected. We had requested a room away from the elevators and got a real bonus. The room had a complete kitchenette, a small table for dinner for two, an easy chair and great lights for reading. The included free breakfast is not good if you are on a diet but... More

An ideal location beside the BC Parliament building and centrally located to the city...the staff were friendly especially those in housekeeping, and the breakfasts were just right. If you walk, the farthest attraction is two-hours away; the restaurants are diverse and plenty. If you drive, all the sights are easily accessible. of the hotel's proximity

I can't think of one negative thing to say about my stay here. I will say the exterior of the building isn't very attractive. But that's only because every other building in Victoria is gorgeous. It's the inside that counts!

Very clean and comfortable, exceptionally quiet (even on Halloween night!) and conveniently located near many downtown attractions including the Royal BC Museum and the COHO ferry to Port Angeles. Staff was very pleasant and helpful. Our cat also enjoyed her stay. Wonderful hot breakfast included. We will be back.
