Lonely Planet review

Rooms at this ivy-covered, century-old Inner Harbour landmark are elegant but conservative and some are quite small, but the overall effect is grand and classy, from the raj-style curry and cocktail restaurant to the sumptuous high tea sipped while overlooking the waterfront. Even if you don't stay, make sure you stroll through and soak up the Old World charm.

Our independent authors have visited Fairmont Empress Hotel and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Victoria.
