Located in downtown Victoria, this 80 suite hotel has a definitive West Coast feel about it, from the blend of bright, contemporary furnishings to the rugged sweeping Ocean and mountain views. This hotel succeeds in impressing us, not just because of its stylish setting, but also due to its eco-conscious policies. The O Bistro boasts a fantastic ocean savvy seafood menu – try the “Local Catch” lunch to get a taste of this freshly sourced local cuisine.
Situated in James Bay, Victoria, and minutes from numerous boutiques, eateries, galleries and museums, you’ll never be far from the city’s hustle and bustle. However, if you want a change of scenery walk a few more blocks and find yourself amongst a different sort of city buzz down at the harbour – just moments from the hotel and boasting year-round eco adventures from Whale and Dolphin watching to kayaking.
Choose from amongst the stunning studio suites, or opt for a one or two bedroom option depending on exactly how much space you fancy. All rooms provide decadent amenities as standard procedure, with each room comprising of a kitchen, large bathroom and deep soaker-tub. For added indulgence, request a two bedroom suite on the 7th floor or above and take in panoramic views of the surrounding ocean and mountains.
