'?# JT THE EMPRESS HOTEL
VICTORIA, B. C.
HE Empress, one of the world's most charming hotels, is situated in a beautiful formal
garden that fronts on the placid waters of Victoria's
Inner Harbour. Royalty has graced its suites and
world travellers gather in its public rooms, for
Victoria is the heart of that all-year Paradise,
Canada's Evergreen Playground.
41 In a healthful climate, guests of the Empress
enjoy year round golf, riding, swimming, fishing,
tennis—all outdoor recreations. They enjoy, too,
the quiet beauty of this city of homes and gardens,
a city which taxed the descriptive powers of Kipling,
who ransacked earth's most alluring spots to find
pigments for his canvas.
& You will not want to miss the Old English Yule-
tide, lavishly prepared for guests of the Empress
Hotel—bringing in the Yule Log, the savoury Boar's
Head—Christmas Carols—all the legendary frolics
and fun of a genuine Old English Yuletide celebration.
w Early in the month of March each year, the Empress
Amateur Golf Tournament is held, at which time
the Sir Edward Beatty Challenge Cup, Chamber of
Commerce Trophy, Victoria Rotary Rose Bowl and
the Matson Inter-District Team Cup are competed
for, as well as other prizes. The competition is open
to all guests of the Empress Hotel and members in
good standing of Clubs in Victoria. During the tournament gala, dinner-dancing and entertainment hold
sway at the Empress, and are climaxed by the presentation of prizes at a Grand Ball on the closing night.
9 Though characterized by an attractive individuality, the Empress is one of fourteen hotels, owned and
operated by the Canadian Pacific. Situated at strategic
points in the leading business and resort areas,
these hotels form a convenient chain across Canada.
