.£.
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,
*I In a healthful climate, tempered by the Japan Current, 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 who ransacked earth's most alluring
spots to find pigments for his canvas.
fl Though characterized by an attractive individuality, The Empress is one of
fifteen 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.
