Save on Your Stay in Victoria
When Victoria was named the capital of British Columbia in 1866, many mainlanders were surprised and opposed the decision. The newly formed Legislative Council was originally in New Westminster, but Victoria’s position as the largest city and centre of commerce made it the perfect location for the capital. Since then, Victoria has become a mecca for government and tourism, thanks to its stunning scenery, perennial flower gardens, and rich history.
As you stroll through the streets, the uniqueness of Victoria is apparent, from the colourful houses of James Bay to the narrow alleyways of Chinatown, such as the famous Fan Tan Alley. And while the city has a storied past, it has a novel future with eclectic shops and trendy restaurants, making it a perfect blend of old-world charm and modern comforts.
With spring just around the corner, there’s no better place to stay than The Victoria Regent. With our privileged location downtown on Victoria’s famous inner harbour, a walk through history is steps away.
