Al­ways one of our fa­vorite ho­tels in Vic­to­ria, Bri­tish Columbia, Fair­mont Em­press has been go­ing through a ma­jor ren­o­va­tion for some time now… but this trans­for­ma­tion will be com­pleted very soon. Though the ho­tel has re­mained fully op­er­a­tional dur­ing the ren­o­va­tion, the of­fi­cial un­veil­ing of Phase Two will surely be im­pres­sive when it hap­pens this June. With $55-mil­lion in­vested into this ren­o­va­tion, Q at the Em­press is a bold new restau­rant and bar; the lobby lounge is more el­e­gant and so­phis­ti­cated than ever be­fore; Fair­mont Gold has been ex­panded with a ter­race that over­looks Vic­to­ria’s In­ner Har­bour; an ex­pan­sive and glam­orous Royal Suite was re­vealed; and 235 lav­ish guest rooms are al­ready com­pleted. When Phase Two is com­pleted in June, it will fea­ture a spec­tac­u­lar new lobby, ren­o­vated Wil­low Stream Spa, re­newed pub­lic spa­ces, and the re­main­ing 229 guest rooms. We look for­ward to see­ing all of the ren­o­va­tions, but for now, here is a glimpse into the re­birth of Fair­mont Em­press.
