What You'll Get
Hotel stays allow guests to experience the bliss of quiet bedrooms, communal jacuzzis, and all-you-can-eat moisturizing soap. Introduce yourself to a new lifestyle with today's Groupon: for $199, you get a one-night stay in a two-bedroom penthouse suite and a $50 dining credit at Chateau Victoria Hotel & Suites in Victoria (up to a $439 value).
Nestled downtown, just blocks from the inner harbour and the sea, Chateau Victoria catapults guests up to the 16th and 17th floors, where they softly land in one of seven two-bedroom penthouse suites (up to a $389/night value, depending on the time of year). The 100 per cent nonsmoking rooms invite slumber and aerial somersaults on pillow-top beds draped with down duvets and 300-thread-count linens. One-and-a-half or two bathrooms come stocked with Deserving Thyme bath amenities and fluffy bathrobes, and walkout balconies open to expansive views of downtown. Further amenities include a plasma-screen TV, full or partial kitchens, and complimentary high-speed Internet for quick streaming of the entire Oxford English Dictionary read backward.
Located on the 18th floor, Vista 18's rooftop dining boasts views spanning the snow-capped Olympic Mountains and focuses on free-range, organic ingredients. Dinner entrees range from Sooke Mountain trout ($22) to gluten-free vegetable lasagna ($20), followed by desserts such as raspberry bread pudding ($9). Clive's Classic Lounge swaddles patrons in comfy leather seating and Swarovski crystal lighting before plunking down menu items such as steamed island mussels ($15) and artisan international cheese plates ($18+). A menu of specialty cocktails includes classics, reinterpretations, and house creations such as the Buffalo's Roam ($9), mixing Bison Grass vodka, pink-grapefruit liqueur, peach bitters, and cucumber muddled by rounds of intense trivia.
