Comments 333

The City of Victoria is celebrating its 150th anniversary this year as the town site of Fort Victoria was incorporated on August 2nd in 1862. Events have been planned throughout the year along with a community festival and ceremony on August 2nd at Centennial Square. There will be music, performances, birthday cake, and much more.

On August 5th, the city will host the 23rd annual Symphony Splash — the biggest event of the summer right within the scenic inner harbour complete with fireworks. The symphony is accompanied by iconic Victoria attractions like the cathedral bells, the carillon outside of the Royal BC Museum, and even the Coho Ferry horn.

It will be a great time to be in Victoria but it’s an interesting and captivating city any time of year. The Magnolia Hotel & Spa is offering up a special Victoria 150 Package to those who would like to visit the capital.

When you book two-nights accommodation in one of their rooms you’ll receive a $75 per day credit to enjoy Victoria and a personal concierge will help you create a customized vacation. The personal concierge — who is available during your stay and leading up to your trip — can help craft an itinerary that includes Harbour Air Scenic Flights, whale watching tours, spa treatments, and more.

A few years ago Keira-Anne and I stayed at the Magnolia and instantly fell in love with the luxurious boutique property. It is centrally-located right near the inner harbour, it’s warm and welcoming, and has a very personal and friendly feel.

“Travelers are greeted with prompt service, smiles and the tinkering of a baby grand piano. While the winter weather outside was frightful, complimentary sugar cookies and hot apple cider in the lobby proved to be most delightful… …Our room, complete with hers and hers queen-sized beds, featured a glittering view of the Parliament Buildings and a sliver of Victoria Harbour. Though the hotel is less than a decade old, the decor of both the common area and each of the rooms is exquisitely styled in a manner that’s both refined and undoubtedly comfortable.” – Keira-Anne.

The Magnolia has been voted one of the top hotels in Canada by Condé Nast Traveler readers and recognised as one of the Top 10 Luxury Hotels in Canada by TripAdvisor’s® 2011 Travelers’ Choice® awards.
