Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
We liked the lobby design, location and cleanliness of the room. The esspresso coffee in the room was excellent. Staff very welcoming, pleasant and helpful all the time. We did not like that the room was facing a wall and not having a nice view since we stayed for three nights. The washroom did not have a fan but clean.

The Rialto is an older hotel that has been beautifully renovated and updated. The hotel's location is fantastic; we walked everywhere we needed to go in Downtown Victoria. The staff were welcoming, friendly, and helpful. The room was comfortable and very clean, and we appreciated the recycle bin, green initiatives, and Covid precautions. We would definitely stay at the Rialto again.
