About This Hotel
Not all hotels aspire to be sleek, glass boxes. Fairmont Empress on Vancouver Island is a reminder of a grand, long-forgotten way of life.
Fairmont Empress has been standing on the shores of Inner Harbor since 1908. After 80 years, it was lovingly restored to its original grandeur - all guest rooms were renovated and a health club, indoor pool, and guest reception were added.
Guest rooms are decorated in a very traditional style with comfy armchairs and vanities. Magnificent views overlook the city, courtyard, or spectacular harbor. Fairmont Gold floor has a private lounge with honor bar, evening hors d'oeuvres and an attentive concierge team.
Dining is integral to the Empress experience. Afternoon Tea is a ritual. In fact, more than 800 people per day relive the tradition. The Bengal Lounge serves a renowned curry buffet and the seasonal menu at The Empress Room is prepared with sustainable, local ingredients from the Pacific Northwest.
With her turn-of-the-century beauty, Fairmont Empress captures the elegance of a bygone era but the facilities and service will impress travelers from any age.
