Delta Victoria Ocean Pointe Resort Hotel Review and Deals

Just stayed at the luxurious Delta Victoria Ocean Pointe Resort Hotel and Spa in Victoria BC. I've stayed at a number of hotels in Victoria over the years but this is by far the best location and value in my opinion for a luxury hotel in the harbour area.

The views are incredible, there is a seawall right in front of the hotel that goes for miles, and the rooms are very quiet, away from the highway. Spinnaker's Brewpub and Downtown Victoria are an easy walk, or you can hop on one of the mini ferries at the hotel that will get you there even faster.

If you click on the picture below you can see the BC Legislature building, The ivy-covered Fairmont Empress to the left, Undersea Gardens, the Royal BC Museum, the Wax Museum, the COHO ferry that goes 3 times a day to Port Angeles, WA and the local harbor ferries that shuttle passengers around Victoria Harbour.

The Victoria harbour is constantly a beehive of activity that's always entertaining to watch. Seaplanes come and go regularly in front of the Empress, the Coho ferry and Victoria Clipper make regular trips in and out of the harbour, kayakers are everywhere and the mini ferries that cross the harbour to various destinations make it easy to get around without using a car.

I recommend selecting a Signature Club full-harbour view room at the Delta Victoria Ocean Pointe Resort Hotel , which also gives you a deluxe continental breakfast in the Signature Lounge and free appies from 5 to 7 in the evening. The 5-star LURE Restaurant in the hotel also gives you an option for fine dining with an incredible view.
