Travel + Leisure Names Hotel Grand Pacific Victoria's Top Property

July 2, 2014; Victoria, B.C. – Located right on Victoria’s Inner Harbour, the Hotel Grand Pacific has been named one of Canada’s top city hotels by prestigious U.S.-travel magazine, Travel + Leisure.

The only Victoria property to be included, the Hotel Grand Pacific came in at number 10 on the magazine’s list of “Top City Hotels in Canada,” which is part of their 2014 “World’s Best” Awards. Scoring 87.41 points, the hotel was the only property on the list to be highlighted for offering great value.  Now in its 19th year, the awards are determined by a reader survey, and respondents are asked to rate hotels in five categories: rooms/facilities, location, service, restaurants/food, and value. As part of the same awards, Vancouver Island took the top spot for “World’s Best Islands: Continental U.S. and Canada.”

“We’re thrilled to be named one of Canada’s best city hotels,” said Reid James, general manager of the Hotel Grand Pacific. “Travel + Leisure readers are well-travelled and discerning when it comes to their accommodation choices, so a nod from them is very gratifying. It serves as recognition of the high standards we’re continually striving for.”

Conveniently located on the Inner Harbour in downtown Victoria, the Hotel Grand Pacific is the perfect choice for the lifestyle traveller seeking an alternative from the traditional branded hotel stay.  With 304 spacious guestrooms and suites, the Hotel Grand Pacific is renowned for delivering an exceptional and personalized guest service experience. With a focus on health and wellness, the hotel offers complimentary access to the Victoria Athletic Club, located on-site. Relax at our Asian inspired SORA Spa or enjoy West Coast fare in the Pacific Restaurant & Lounge. The Hotel Grand Pacific is a proud member of Preferred Hotels & Resorts Worldwide.
