Victoria Royal Package Fairmont Empress 1 night

A century-old tradition, the tea lobby has served afternoon tea to royalty, celebrities and dignitaries alike. Surrounded by chintz fabrics, antiqued tapestries and rugs, wingback chairs, vintage furnishings, hand-carved tables and a view of the harbour, guests can enjoy tea and delights as they listen to live piano music. The award-winning pastry chef and team create handmade signature Empress scones, plus pastries, tea sandwiches and sweets prepared in-house daily, using locally sourced ingredients. They’re served with the original blend of The Empress Tea, created specifically for The Fairmont Empress, on a dainty William Edwards (formerly Booth and Royal Doulton) china and sterling silver service.

A stunning BC Ferries voyage from the mainland, Victoria has a dynamic blend of coastal beauty, historic charm and urban appeal. British Columbia’s capital city is set on the sparkling Strait of Juan de Fuca, at the southern tip of Vancouver Island. Surrounded by water, it has views of the harbour and the Olympic Mountains.

Housed in the historic buildings that make up Victoria’s walkable downtown core are celebrated restaurants, stylish boutiques and cozy pubs. Whether visitors shop along Government Street, stroll down cobblestone streets, explore the Inner Harbour, go whale-watching or head out to one of the many nearby attractions, they find that Victoria is a charming city with a dynamic ambience.


Here's what our customers had to say about Victoria Royal Getaway Fairmont Empress...

  We took the ferry to Victoria, 2 nights at the Empress, afternoon tea, a whale watching expedition, and return to the mainland. It was so easy and wonderful, thanks to your exceptional service.

  My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our trip. The service on the ferries and at the hotel were excellent. We especially enjoyed going for afternoon tea and shopping on Government Street.
