The Parkside Hotel & Spa
The Parkside Hotel & Spa is located one block from the Victoria Conference Centre and two blocks from the Inner Harbour and the Provincial Legislative Buildings; The Parkside Hotel & Spa's home is steeped in history and culture.
The Parkside Hotel & Spa was completed in summer 2009. The design concept for the hotel fits beautifully within the surrounding neighbourhood, where it's flanked on one side by historic St. Joseph's Hospital, and St. Ann's Academy across the road. The Parkside Hotel & Spa features stunning contemporary lobbies, and is one of the most modern amongst the hotels Victoria, BC downtown offers.
The Parkside Hotel & Spa is the perfect base for the Victoria adventurer – looking to get off the beaten track, and see something new. Take in Cook Street Village – a 15-minute walk from the hotel – with local restaurants and pubs, boutiques selling specialty food items, take-out, art and fashion from local designers. From Cook Street Village, stroll through Rockland and Fairfield – residential neighborhoods with historic houses – toward Government House, the residence of the Lieutenant Governor of British Columbia. Or, enjoy the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria and its collection of 15,000 objets d'art from Asia, Europe and North America with a primary emphasis on Canada and Japan.
Victoria offers many options for guided city tours – walking, by bus, pedicab and some fun alternatives. Contact the hotel Concierge for more information on these options. Enjoy a tour across the Inner Harbour on one of Victoria's famous Harbour Ferries – the perfect way to get to the Songhees walkway offering exceptional photo vantage points of the Inner Harbour.
The Parkside Hotel & Spa has ample guest parking available. Bring or rent a car, and travel through to the Saanich Peninsula, where multiple award-winning wineries are open for wine tasting. The culinary-minded tourist will be sure to appreciate Victoria Gin, produced by Victoria Spirits, where it's handmade in small batches in gleaming copper pots. While on the peninsula, visit world-renowned Butchart Gardens. Butchart Gardens features fifty-five acres of stunning floral show gardens and is a National Historic Site of Canada.
