Hello from Stockholm, Sweden. My wife and I will be in Victoria for 1 night only in the beginning of March 2012 (coming from Vancouver on a Sunday, and going furtheron on Monday afternoon by the Clipper ferry to Seattle. It is too short time in Victoria, I know! (But then we will have to come back :-)
I would prefere a nice, authentic hotel with an good atmosphere much more than a large and dull "conference" hotel. Preferably in downtown (centrally in) Victoria (maybe close to the harbour where the Clipper ferry is departing from...?).
Please, can you kindly give me any advice? Thanks in advance.
