Regarded as a Condé Nast Readers' Choice and Gold List hotel, and honoured with the Travel + Leisure distinction as a top Canadian hotel, the Fairmont Empress graces Victoria's sparkling Inner Harbour with an iconic presence. This luxury hotel in Victoria, British Columbia, offers 464 beautifully appointed guest rooms and suites, and expansive meeting and wedding space adjacent to the conference centre. Located on the picturesque West Coast of Canada on Vancouver Island, this is the ideal location to explore all the natural beauty of the west coast of Canada.
Important Fairmont Empress Renovation notice: Through May 31, 2016 the hotel is undergoing an iconic restoration. The work will be divided into two phases to minimize guest disruption. The north wing, which includes the main lobby, health club, spa, and 229 guestrooms is largely unaffected by the work taking place. The south wing includes the renovation of 245 rooms and suites including the Fairmont Gold lounge and patio, as well as the Tea Lobby, the Empress Dining Room, and our lower level meeting spaces. Additionally, we are performing exterior work on the south wing which includes masonry restoration and roofing repairs.
Our Afternoon Tea service will continue to be offered in our naturally lit, upper reception lobby, and the Bengal Lounge will be open to all guests for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Rest assured, we are making every effort to ensure that any disruption is kept to a minimum throughout this process. For more information on these exciting plans, we invite you to visit our renovations page here.
