Nice hotel/great pub!

The hotel room was set up like a time share, with a fully equipped kitchen. Although the room did not have AC, it did have some ceiling fans and a couple of stand up fans. The food served in the restaurant was great and my husband really LOVED the beer pub!

Great hotel, but need bigger water heater so you don’t have to wait 15-20 minutes between showers for water to heat up again.

Good Hotel At A Good Price

Pros: The staff was most helpful and friendly. They are a great source of information on whats in the neighborhood.
Cons: Its a small hotel and in a historic building. Don't expect the lobby of the Empress, just an honest good hotel at a rational price.
Location: Just north of the main shopping area (Government and Douglas Streets) 15 minute walk to Inner Harbor, Fan Tan Alley and Chinatown less than 100 yards.
Swans Hotel is a 15 minute walk down Government Street to the Inner Harbor. (The Empress Hotel, Houses of Parlament, Boat rides and starting points for tours to Buchart Gardens, City Tours, etc) Close to more good places to eat than we could try in 6 days. The in Hotel Pub/Restaurant is definitely worth a try as well. Hotel staff are all super nice and very helpful. The building is over 100 years old but the rooms are nicely updated with good roomy bathrooms, kitchnettes and good beds. Like most hotels, there is no AC in the rooms, but the windows do open and the nights were cool enough to need a blanket (in mid May). We would definitely stay there again.

Fun comfortable hotel in the heart of downtown

Pros: Location, ambience, staff, the bed, the downstairs restaurant and brew pub, laundry facilities
Cons: Nothing to be improved on.
Location: Smack dab in the middle of downtown, many restaurants, waterfront, China Town, an MEC store all within walking distance.
This was a gem of a hotel, in an older building that had been nicely renovated, with a lively brew pub/restaurant on the first floor. We actually stayed here twice, at the beginning and end of a backpacking trip on the West Coast Trail. Rooms were nicely furnished with interesting artwork, had kitchenettes, nice bathrooms. Bed linens were heavenly. Nice plush terry robes. Rooms had small balconies to let in the fresh air, one balcony had two chairs, was big enough to sit out on, and that room also had large windows downstairs and in the loft, looking out over downtown. There were restaurants galore within a block or two. We noticed we were one block over from China Town. We loved eating and drinking beer in the downstairs brew pub, both the beer and food were great. They have a pay washer and dryer on site, which was good when we returned from the backpacking trip. Felt safe, secure here. If I ever return to Victoria I would stay here again, and would recommend it to anyone visiting there.

Great hotel in the downtown district

Staying at the Swan Hotel was one of the best hotel experience I've ever had. It's a great place to stay in a beautiful city.
