Hotel Douglas Victoria B.C.
Located in scenic downtown Victoria, B.C. The Douglas Hotel is one of the areas oldest hotels and combines old time charm with modern touches in a great downtown location.
Located a short cab ride from the Inner Harbor, The Douglas is situated by several stores and restaurants, as well as two convenience stores that will satisfy the majority of any travelers needs.
The spacious room had a nice view of the street as well as two comfortable beds, a desk, and ample closet space. The locale also offered a full size bathroom complete with tub and shower as well as amble counter and sink area.
The living room also contained a color television with cable and a clock radio.
The Douglas also offers a bar and an fully licensed facility so guests may purchase beer, wine, and spirits for their visit.
The very helpful and friendly staff made checking in and out a snap, as we were in our comfy room promptly after arriving at the lobby. When we needed a taxi to go out to dinner, or upon checking out, the staff had a cab at the door of the hotel within five minutes of my request.
While the hotel lacked amenities such as a pool, high speed internet, and restaurant, all of which were less than a five minute walk from the hotel and were not missed. For those looking for a affordable hotel in a great locale, look no further than the Hotel Douglas.
