Sophisticated Resort with Nature-Inspired Decor and Sweeping Downtown Views

Fish swim freely in a small, sapphire-colored pond, surrounded by 80-year-old palms, ferns, cycads, and ficus. It's as if some scene from the forests of Madagascar has been transported 10,500 miles to British Columbia. But this curious tropical anomaly exists in Canada—albeit indoors—within Parkside Victoria Resort & Spa's three-story, glass-windowed atrium. Even before getting to the atrium, the first floor's rock-and-stone façade and fruit-tree-studded garden emit eco-friendly vibes. Rather than inhibit its luxuriousness, these nature-inspired designs enhance the charm and stately beauty one seeks in an upscale hotel.

Throughout Parkside Victoria Resorts, the labor of its energy-sustainable actions is evident—some carpets are made from recycled plastic pop bottles, and soil and vegetation from rooftop gardens help insulate the building. Hardwood floors in the luxury suites were harvested from sustainable forests and complement the solid-maple dining table. A private patio with downtown views connects the living room and master bedroom, both with flat-screen TVs and electric fireplaces. Egyptian-cotton linens drape the king-size bed's pocket-coil mattress, and the stainless-steel dishwasher, refrigerator, and stove glisten in the granite kitchen. The suite's two bathrooms are a major asset for families on the go, and the heated tile floors warm toes after a day of snowboarding or fencing on ice.

At the on-site AquaTerre Spa, skilled technicians chase stress away with hot-stone massages and deep-sea-salt body scrubs. A tranquil feeling comes naturally while drinking complimentary tea among potted plants in the spa’s lounge, which carries into the candle-lit treatment rooms. Contrasting with AquaTerre’s private relaxation, the lobby lounge and rooftop patio encourages banter on sustainable furniture while admiring the original artwork.

Victoria, British Columbia: Historical Maritime City Surrounded by Natural Beauty

Echoes of Victoria’s history as a gold-rush town and naval base can still be seen in the 19th-century warehouses downtown and Victorian mansions skirting the southern shores in James Bay. Parkside Victoria Resort & Spa is steps away from pubs, boutiques, and parks. Just around the corner, the Royal BC museum delves into the history of the region with an impressive collection of artifacts and artwork, including a modern history gallery showcasing indigenous totem poles and masks.

With Victoria’s quaint character, horse-drawn carriage tours are a fitting way to explore the city’s natural treasures; Tally-Ho Carriage Tours gallop through Beacon Hill Park and past James Bay's exquisite gardens. Whale watching, kayaking, and other open-air pursuits are also within reach for active travelers. For longer getaways, dedicating a day trip to surrounding rainforests will highlight the Vancouver Island's wildlife and varied terrain, including the Gowlland Range's craggy mountains.

initially on arrival ...attempting to offer a room that was not featured on the groupon site? We expressed our disappointment . Again, the staff had indicated that they did not have one available??? But yet after some discussion with the manager, a room was available. This was not a very pleasant experience. Our stay was great after the above was worked out.

Very noisy with the windows open (and it wasn't all that warm outside, but the room was warm so we had to open the windows.) Some kind of fan would be nice.

I've already recommended The Parkside to a friend, who stayed there with her family. They had an excellent experience, too.
