INTERNeX Explorer: Empress Hotel Victoria

This weekend, we go to Victoria, and for that reason I would like to talk a little bit about a very famous building there: The Fairmont  Empress, one of the oldest hotels in the Capital of British Columbia!

For those who don´t know, it has been designated “National Historic Site of Canada” due to the significance along the Nation and it was opened the 20 of January of 1908, so it means this hotel is 105 years old !

Located facing the also famous Inner Harbour, this elegant hotel has 477 rooms and 4 restaurants inside, and it has received several accolades including Travel + Leisure Best Hotels of the World and recognized on Conde Nast Gold List.

The hotel also became Victoria’s first Five Green Key hotel as acknowledged by the Hotel Association of Canada for sustainability practices.

We’ll visit it for sure, because is a MUST VISIT in Victoria, but did you know why is also famous this amazing hotel?

For its  classic Victorian afternoon tea service: tea with tea sandwiches, fresh scones, preserves and clotted known as Empress cream in its “Tea Lobby”. I’ve heard that it is a really unique experience and it’s amazing, but you’ll be surprised with the price: Afternoon tea is approx. $60 per person. Now is even more delicious, right?

I am sure we’ll be impressed with this amazing hotel, and also with more fantastic places in Victoria.

See you soon guys !
