One of the many beautiful suites at the Empress
Conservatory, Empress Hotel
Nine-hole putting green in the Empress Gardens
The Empress Hotel, one of the Pacific Coast's most
charming hotels, is situated in a beautiful garden overlooking the placid waters of Victoria's Inner Harbor.
It is of fireproof construction throughout, and its large
public and guest rooms are the ultimate in comfort and
good taste.
The Empress has many attractions, including ....
570 commodious rooms, majority with bath; Crystal
Ball Room, public and private dining rooms, Tudor
Grill Room, and ample facilities for conventions. Unique
features are: the Conservatory, where a fountain plays
amid masses of exotic blooms; and the nearby Crystal
Garden, with its glass-enclosed swimming pool, palm-
bordered promenades, warm salt-water bathing, Turkish
and steam baths, hot sea-water baths, Swedish and
electric massage.
Guests of the Empress Hotel are charmed by the
beauty of its gardens. Lawns of velvety smoothness, and
verdant freshness flank the rose garden, a delightful
retreat where rare specimens lift their showy heads and
prolific climbers entwine the pergolas and arbors.
Crystal Garden, adjoining the Empress Hotel
Stately old trees offer shady nooks to admire the
Empress Gardens, or watch the players on the nine-hole
putting green or tennis courts. On the other side of the
hotel is a rock garden where Alpine and other creeping
plants nestle in the shade of a lily pond which reflects
the graceful fronds of the willows in its mirrored surface.
Enjoy a holiday at the Empress Hotel. A joyous
welcome awaits you: whether your vacation be during
the ideal spring, summer or autumn seasons; for the
Old English Yutetide Festivities over Christmas-New
Year; or to enter in the Annual Winter Golf Tournament
held in March on a picturesque golf course for the Sir
Edward Beatty Challenge Cup. 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. The
Vancouver Island Spring Festival is held at Victoria in
May under the auspices of the Vancouver Island
Horticultural Society. The programme includes a
flower festival, decorative table displays, lectures at the
Empress Hotel, and the opening of many of Victoria's
exclusive gardens. "Follow the birds" to Victoria, in Canada's Evergreen Playground ... on the southern tip of
Vancouver Island. Here is every vacation appeal—climate and recreation, in an ideal setting.
Tempered by mild ocean breezes and the warm Japanese Current rolling onward from Asia, the climate
of Victoria is subject neither to extremes of heat nor cold . . . sometimes roses bloom at Christmas!
Victoria's delightful English beauty is heightened by Little Saanich Mountain and the blue-tinted
Sooke Hills. Here, bathed in glorious sunshine, golf is played throughout the year on championship
courses, and other so-called summer sports are year-round pursuits. Other recreational opportunities
include: tennis, riding, hiking, motoring over excellent roads amid majestic scenery, motor-boating,
canoeing, fine bathing, adventurous mountain climbing, steamer excursions through inland and coastal
waterways ... fishing and hunting in the fishing waters and game haunts to which Victoria is the
natural gateway.
To add to the appeal of this delightful region, reduced transportation fares are authorized from
many points—ask your nearest ticket agent. Then, too, attractive hotel accommodation is available
at moderate rates.
