Fabulous staff, facilities and location

Posted May 21, 2015
A great Eco friendly hotel in downtown Victoria, just 2 blocks from the water, bus depot and BC museum and IMAX. Staff are incredibly friendly and helpful. View from my balcony facing downtown Victoria and the Olympic Mountains was fantastic. Great kitchen and bathrooms. Hotel has lots of great features including rooftop terrace with BBQ for guests to use. Spa and swimming pool, cinema (two films each night, one for families, one for adults), botanical atrium and lots of water features. Would definitely recommend, especially as in walking distance from most places to see in Downtown.

The Good and the Bad

Posted May 6, 2015
Pros: Location was very good. General ambiance was pleasant.
Cons: Housekeeping services including a tag for the door requesting that the room be made up. Better heating/cooling capability for use by visitor.
Hotel is well located. Desk staff was very helpful. Housekeeping was very bad. We stayed 5 nights. Twice we had to ask for last minute room service since no one had cleaned the room by late afternoon. One day we received no room service at all. Temperature control was impossible and the only way to cool the room was to leave the balcony door open all night.

Very comfortable stay in the center of Victoria.

Posted Apr 30, 2015
Pros: The lobby is lovely and the indoor swimming pool is fantastic.
Cons: The roof-top garden was under construction. When it is complete, it will be a very nice addition.
Location: Victoria's inner harbor is just a few blocks away. Museums, restaurants, whale watching excursions are a quick walk away. So is Beacon Hill Park.
The Parkside is conveniently located three blocks off Government St., so it is within walking distance of many tourist attractions. Our room was large, well-equipped and very comfortable. The deck off the room was large and a lovely place to enjoy the view and beautiful weather.

Awkward, but very nice

Posted Apr 28, 2015
Everything was top notch, high quality, thorough. Stayed on a windy day, and after the entire room steamed up after a shower cracked a window. Room trapped the wind so it howled and pushed everything around. No pay per view option in room, had to use onsite movie theater (playing Beethoven's 4th) or borrow old DVDs from front desk. bathroom activities can be heard throughout the entire suite.

The rooms are spacious and comfortable with the highest styling. I gathered with four friends and we all remarked on the beauty and comfort of the room. Our kitchen was perfectly stocked. The fact that the hotel is LEED Green Hotel certified is the most impressive factor of all.

Modern and nice with a great location

Posted Apr 13, 2015
Pros: Everything.
Cons: The bed was not super comfortable and there was some noise from our neighbors one night.
The Parkside Hotel was a great choice. It is across the street from St. Anne's Academy which gave us a nice view and pretty grounds to walk our dog around. The hotel is just a couple blocks from the Royal BC Museum, the waterfront promenade and the Empress. There is a lawn bowling club about a block away too. We loved the location and were able to walk everywhere. It was also on Blanchard St which is the main road that takes you out of town north to Sydney or Butchart Gardens, so it was a really easy drive too. My kids enjoyed the movie nights in the hotels private theater which was super comfortable and free. The pool is huge and beautifully crafted. The service at the hotel was great and our room was spacious. I appreciated that there was a dishwasher and washer/dryer as well as a fully equipped kitchen. We booked this room on Easy Click for $76 per night USD. This is definitely the cheapest we've ever paid for a hotel room and can't believe how nice the entire facility was. My parents stayed there too in a different larger room and they couldn't stop talking about what a nice place it was. Highly recommend.
