The Fabulous Fairmont Empress Hotel

Last night we were provided with an industry tour of the fabulous Fairmont Empress Hotel. It is easy to see why this Fairmont hotel sets itself apart from most of the other hotels in Victoria. First the charm and history capture you immed...iately. We started our tour in the beautiful Palm Court with the amazing dome over head. We were provided with drinks and appetizers while we were greeted by Anita our hostess for the evening and we mingled and met many of the key staff of the Empress. The sliders and fish and chips were well presented and so very tasty. Well done, Chef Silva! Then it was off to see the Empress. We started with the amazing Bengal Room. The curry buffet is absolutely amazing. We often go there for a refreshing drink and an appy when we are downtown. Our favourite cocktail is the 1908...this is the year the Empress opened and starting serving tea. The Bengal Room is beautiful and a great place to relax and unwind. Then we had a good look at the shops in the concourse outside the Bengal Lounge. If you were looking for a great gift or keepsake from your trip, you would find it here. The staff were very proud to show us the Gold Rooms and Concierge Lounge. After looking at some of the luxury accommodations, we would certainly recommend looking into the gold plan. All forty-five exclusive Fairmont Gold Rooms and Suites have undergone a multimillion dollar renovation. For guest booking a gold room, a private Concierge lounge access with lavish continental breakfast, honour bar and evening hors d'oeuvres with attentive Concierge team is provided. An executive boardroom, laptop work station and WiFi features are designed to exceed the needs of the most discerning traveler. The we were off to the Wilow Steam Spa. Pround manager, Anita greetedus and provided samples from the Empress Tea Service and a tour of the Spa, including an arm and hand massage. This is the place to relax and unwind. It was a great place to end our tour. The staff we encountered throughout the tour were friendly and helpful. Thanks to the staff and management of the Fairmont Empress for such a wonderful tour.
