This hotel is AMAZING!! I love historic hotels! So beautiful and unique! The staff was super helpful! The parking was so nice, especially in that area! We enjoyed the restaurant below in the morning and really appreciated the coupon the hotel gave us. We will defiantly stay again if we go back to Victoria!
