Fairmont Empress

One of British Columbia's landmark hotels, the Fairmont Empress, has a reputation extending far beyond the Inner Harbor shores. Expertly combining the building's historical charm with modern necessities and comforts, this luxury hotel in Victoria has earned its nickname "The Castle on the Coast."


The Fairmont Empress - part of the award-winning Fairmont Hotels Group - is ideally located just across the street from the province's parliament buildings. This makes it a walking distance from historical sites throughout Victoria. Moreover, the bikes available through the hotel make it easy to traverse downtown in no time. The hotel is just a short bus or car ride away from Butchart Gardens. This is one of the world's most beautiful rose gardens and a must-see item when visiting Victoria, BC.

Rooms and Suites

The Fairmont Empress Victoria is home to 464 rooms and suites. There are six guest room options that all sleep 2-4 people, with options for a king bed, queen bed, or two doubles. Additionally, these rooms offer a sitting area with a table and armchairs, plus a view of the harbor, hotel garden, or city.

Suites are much larger and have a defined living space and dining area. For example, the Executive Suite offers a view of the city and comes with a king bed, a sofa bed, or two queen beds. The Junior Suite will give you a view of the city or the courtyard and comes with a king-sized bed.

Opt for the Junior Harbor View Suite if you want the same gorgeous room with a view of the Inner Harbor. For those looking for a little more space and a completely separate sleeping area, there is the One Bedroom Suite or the One Bedroom Harbor View Suite. The Signature One Bedroom and Two Bedroom Harbour View Suites include a shower, bathtub, and large marble bathrooms. There is also hardwood flooring throughout and panoramic harbor views.

Governor-General and Royal Suite

The Governor-General Suite is a spacious accommodation with a dining room for eight plus a large living area. Fairmont Gold privileges come with a stay in this suite and the Royal Suite. The Royal Suite is the ultimate luxury: the large bedroom includes a walk-in closet and spa bathroom. Elegantly decorated, this suite provides plenty of comfortable sitting options from which you can enjoy coffee with a view of the city and harbor.
