Making a Reservation
Take a short stroll one block up your street to Zambri’s. Open for lunch, brunch, and dinner, they serve up heavenly Italian cuisine in a lovely setting.
The Mint brings together great food and good times in an intimate below ground dining lounge.

Come for dinner and stay late; the lounge is open until 2am daily.
Shopping / Retail
The Bay Centre is a four storey shopping mall covering an entire city block, with over 90 shops and services to explore and enjoy.
Downtown Victoria’s Lower Johnson Street, or “LoJo” as it is commonly referred to by locals, is Victoria’s trendy fashion district, featuring boutiques like Smoking Lily, Paradise Boutique, and Still Life, to name a few. Further down the LoJo’s strip is Market Square, chalk full of shops as unique as the heritage brick-and-beam building with an open air courtyard.
Government Street is often thought of as Victoria’s tourist shopping strip. If you are looking to bring a piece of West Coast BC with you, be sure to stop into Cowichan Trading where you will find hand crafted native arts, crafts, moccasins, jewelry, authentic Cowichan sweaters, and Pacific smoked salmon. Also along Government Street is Munro’s Books, one of the world’s best bookstores as cited by National Geographic. It is well worth visiting their vast book collection, housed in a striking neo-classical building that was originally built for the Royal Bank of Canada in 1909.
Food / Grocers
The Market on Yates is a quality supermarket in an ultra-convenient location. They have a great reputation for stocking hard to find items and stock a good variety of gluten-free products.
Open year round, the Victoria Public Market at the Hudson is well known for its locally produced cheeses, farm fresh groceries, handmade pies, local butcher fresh meats, and so much more. New to the Hudson is Bumble + Hive’s drop in play centre so you can shop and dine while your little ones play and thrive.
Pubs / Bars
Irish Times is a traditional Irish bar with live music, outdoor patio, classic fare & a host of craft beers. Built in 1984, the magnificent historic dwelling sets the stage for a true Irish experience. See for yourself why the Irish Times was voted one of the best Irish pubs outside of Ireland!
The Drake is a great new pub focused on organic, fresh & local food paired with West Coast craft beer.
A 10 minute walk along Victoria’s picturesque waterfront will bring you to Spinnaker’s Gastro Brewpub, Victoria’s waterfront brewpub featuring locally-sourced ingredients & traditionally crafted brews.
Cafes / Bakeries
Fol Epi. Not just your average bakery, Fol Epi uses organic grains milled on-site and baked in a wood-fired brick oven. Need we say more!
Habit Coffee. You don’t have to go far to start your day out with the smoothest coffee and espresso drinks in Victoria. Housed in the Atrium building just ½ a block up street from your suite, it is the ideal place to sit, converse, and people-watch from floor-to-ceiling windows with a wrap-around view.
Entertainment / Attractions
No trip to Victoria would be complete without a visit to the Royal BC Museum. Located two minutes away from your suite in Victoria’s Inner Harbour, the RBCM features natural & human history and is home to many authentic artifacts year-round, while hosting a number of exciting temporary exhibits as well. Visit Old Town and hear the train rumble by, take a look inside a traditional First Nations longhouse or stop by to say hello to our ever popular woolly mammoth.
