Set on Victoria's Inner Harbour, the Hotel Grand Pacific was named on Travel + Leisure's World's Best Hotels list in 2012 and has been recommended by National Geographic Traveler for families visiting Vancouver Island. Free bike rental, balconies in every room, a vast sports club, and stunning views make this property great value.
Mark Restaurant has been described as "one of the city’s finest" by Frommer’s. Try the chilled summer pea bisque, seared Albacore tuna and raspberry-rubbed roasted venison. There are also the Pacific Restaurant & Terrace for dim sum on the weekend), and the Pacific Lounge for evening cocktails and jazz. Don't miss the afternoon tea, with an Asian twist.
The rooms are spacious and surprisingly quiet (considering the location), and all have balconies that are big enough to relax on. Expect views of the city, gardens, harbour or Olympic Mountains from the floor-to-ceiling windows. Children are especially welcome, with gift bags on arrival, Nintendo consoles and board games provided.
On-site, the Victoria Athletic Club is an impressive size and has an indoor pool, children’s pool, full gym, squash courts and fitness classes. There is also a Thai-themed spa that has a dedicated tea bar. Guests can borrow bikes for free for up to four hours to explore Beacon Hill Park and its oceanside track. Downtown is a 15-minute walk and the Butchart Gardens and Royal BC Museum are also easily accessible. The Victoria Clipper departs from just across the harbour and it's an easy day trip from there to Seattle.
