A Closer Look at the Chateau Victoria Hotel and Suites
Recently, my wife and I had the pleasure of staying at the luxurious Chateau Victoria Hotel & Suites located in downtown Victoria, British Columbia, Canada. This beautiful luxury hotel is ideally located in the city and just a few minutes leisurely walk to Victoria’s famous Inner Harbour.
The Chateau Victoria is a very special hotel for both business and vacationing travelers who desire the finest in luxury and service.
Chateau Victoria Hotel & Suites is Locally Owned
Mr. Clive Piercy is the proud owner having a long history on Vancouver Island back to the 1800’s. The previous home and property the present hotel is situated on is very historical with quite the story that is worth reading about on the hotels website.
To this day, the Chateau Victoria is actively engaged in showing its support to local farmers and in sponsoring many local events throughout the year.
“Experience the best of Victoria through a truly local hotel.”
As you arrive and just outside the front doors of the hotel, you can’t help but notice a lovely bronze statue of the owner Mr. Piercy and his beloved dog ‘Shaker.’ As well, the fountain depicts his love of fishing.
