Located at the tip of Vancouver Island, charming Victoria is just a few hours by ferry from Vancouver, British Columbia, and Seattle, Washington. But with its unique quality of life, it feels a world away. Combining British Empire flair with modern Canadian shopping and dining, Victoria is really the best of both worlds.
Downtown Victoria is eminently walkable, and guests at our Victoria hotels will enjoy window shopping in the area’s many hip boutiques or stopping at a sidewalk café for a coffee or drink. Stroll to the Inner Harbour and take in the colorful street life, as musicians and performers entertain passersby.
One of Victoria’s major advantages is its access to the water, so book a whale watching tour or rent a kayak and paddle in the nearby Strait of Georgia. Not far from your Victoria accommodations, you’ll find The Butchart Gardens, one of the city’s main attractions, and remarkable Craigdarroch Castle, built by a 19th-century millionaire.
Whether you dine in one of the many restaurants in Victoria’s Chinatown or at one of the bistros or pubs near your Marriott Victoria hotel, you’ll find something to please every palette.
