Overview

Not all hotels aspire to be sleek, glass boxes. The Fairmont Empress on Vancouver Island is a reminder of a grand, long-forgotten way of life.

Opt to fly in via seaplane, a dramatic trip that ends in the harbour directly in front of the hotel.
The Fairmont Empress has been standing on the shores of Inner Harbor since 1908. After 80 years, it was lovingly restored to its original grandeur - all guest rooms were renovated and a health club, indoor pool, and guest reception were added.

Guest rooms are decorated in a very traditional style with comfy armchairs and vanities. Magnificent views overlook the city, courtyard, or spectacular harbor. The Fairmont Gold floor has a private lounge with honor bar, evening hors d'oeuvres and an attentive concierge team.

Dining is integral to the Empress experience. Afternoon Tea is a ritual. In fact, more than 800 people per day relive the tradition. The Bengal Lounge serves a renowned curry buffet and the seasonal menu at The Empress Room is prepared with sustainable, local ingredients from the Pacific Northwest.

With her turn-of-the-century beauty, The Fairmont Empress captures the elegance of a bygone era but the facilities and service will impress travelers from any age.
