Travel Tips: Where to Stay

Magnolia Hotel

Victoria, BC (March 7, 2015) The Magnolia Hotel & Spa is honored to be recommended by “Taste of Life”.

You can’t beat the location of the aptly-named, 64-room Magnolia Hotel a few steps from Victoria’s main shopping avenue (Government Street) and two blocks from the Inner Harbour. Newly-renovated rooms are serenely decorated in dove-grey and silver hues. Book a “Diamond” harbour-view room for smashing views and a gas fireplace to cozy up when temps dip. Nightly turndown service and chocolates round out a deluxe stay.

Getting There

It’s a scenic 100-minute sail on BC Ferries from West Vancouver’s Horseshoe Bay terminal to Nanaimo, then a two-hour drive south on Vancouver Island to Victoria. Or you can take the ferry from Tsawwassen to Swartz Bay, which is 20 minutes from Victoria. www.bcferries.com
