Lovers of travel around the globe are familiar with Lonely Planet. Founded in 1972, their glossy travel manuals can be found on all the best bookcases. They also have a long-running TV series and plenty of information online. It was, therefore, a special treat to see an installment for the Victorian Hotel mentioned by this prestigious travel publisher:


Along with a link to the website, Lonely Planet authors had some fun waxing about the historical charm of the Victorian Hotel in Vancouver: “The high-ceilinged rooms at this popular Euro-style, heritage-building hotel combine glossy hardwood floors, a sprinkling of antiques, an occasional bay window and plenty of historical charm.


The entry also recommended guests opt for an extra slice of extra “luxe” and stay in the renovated section, which includes niceties like raindrop showers and marble bathroom floors.


Booking options, package deals for nearby activities, and other relevant details are also mentioned online by Lonely Planet. Additionally, there’s a handy map and dozens of pictures of the hotel’s interior.


Built in 1898, the Victorian Hotel is just 5 minutes from Gastown and a short walk to both the Robson shopping district and SkyTrain station. And remember “The Victorian has friendly staff and an excellent location just steps from the downtown-core action,” so make a reservation or call 1.877.681.6369 to learn more.
