"Outpost of Old World Charm"

I had seen the Empress on a trip to Victoria when I was 16, but did not get to visit the hotel until this trip in 2001 with my family. We had afternoon tea at the hotel which was a grand affair. We were seated in the Tea Lobby and served on Royal Doulton china.

The hotel, which overlooks Victoria's Inner Harbour, was built in 1908 and is a gorgeous example of Edwardian architecture. It is the beloved symbol of this very British city.
