Family Weekend Getaway in Victoria, British Columbia
You can't miss the chateau-like roofline of The Fairmont Empress (rooms from $230/night)—she's a focal point for the Inner Harbour with elegant, chandelier-appointed public spaces. The property is unexpectedly kid friendly, with activities like scavenger hunts and marmot watching, an indoor pool (request a kid-sized robe), and free meals off the children's menu for kids under 5 years (kids aged 6-12 eat for half price off the regular menu). Babysitting services also are available should you wish to have a night out—or a spa treatment.
For less-expensive digs, settle into the rooms at the Royal Scot Hotel & Suites (rooms from $120/night), which offers large 1- and 2-bedroom suites equipped with kitchens. A pool, hot tub, board-game room, laundry room and on-site mini-grocery make this a must-stay for families. The shuttle service will deliver you to downtown destinations and the ferry, although most central downtown locales are only about a 10-minute walk away.
