No. 10 Fairmont Empress, Victoria, British Columbia, Canada
The Empress has one of Victoria’s best addresses; the ivy-covered, British-inspired 1908 hotel faces the Inner Harbour on the southern tip of timber-clad Vancouver Island. Request one of 26 city-view Fairmont rooms throughout the hotel. The Tea Lobby, which overlooks the Inner Harbour, was recently renovated. Don't miss the traditional afternoon tea with scones and finger sandwiches.
