Welcome to Canada’s Castle on the Coast. The Empress Hotel sits proudly at the centre of culture and history in Victoria, British Columbia. This is the best of all worlds – where contrast meets distinction, opulence blends harmoniously with the understated and fabled history meshes with contemporary affairs. One of the oldest hotels in Victoria and a National Historic Site dating to 1908, this grand dame is an alluring blend of classic and contemporary, vintage and cutting-edge.

Our Edwardian-era chateau ranks as one of the 21 Most Iconic Hotels in the World, and where every guest is treated like royalty. Come for dazzling harbour views, impeccable service and traditional luxe at Victoria’s best luxury hotel address.

Go yachting, biking or whale watching around Vancouver Island, stroll the tulip-lined paths of our grounds or sip English Afternoon Tea on royal china in the storied Lobby Lounge. Join us for a garden party on the lawn. Or sip craft cocktails by the firepit while the sun outlines the domes of the Parliament buildings and boats glide by the picturesque Inner Harbour. Rub elbows with royals and politicos, go on a microbrew tour or meet our local farm-to-fork heroes. Welcome to Victoria!
