A big let down after many years enjoying the excellent Top Floor Lounge.
I read the hotels response on the hotels website. Their complete disregard for your comment and response that was totally inappropriate made me drop them for consideration for my stay!

Stayed at the Victoria Marriott Inner Harbour last weekend and used some suite upgrade certificates. We stayed in a one-bedroom suite that overlooked the Fairmont Empress and Legislative Building. The room had an Old-English style decor but and everything was in good condition. My only complaint was Breakfast in the M Club Lounge. Seating during the Breakfast Hours was limited and food was not replaced as it ran out. Not sure if this was because it was a weekend but seemed odd. Loved the location of the hotel as it is walking distance to most of the sights in the Inner Harbour Area.

My friend and I had a 2 night stay here recently (2 rooms). We both applied SNAs and were both upgraded to corner suites, city view. We inquired about a harbour view and were both further upgraded. The suites had very much what I would call an "Arabian Nights" feel to them. We checked in after dark and could not see the harbour. During the daylight, we could finally see the water but it definitely wasn't close (compared to the Delta Ocean Pointe). Location was good. Very close to the bike rental shop, and a short distance from Fisherman's Wharf (a delightful area with multiple food vendors and outdoor tables which came in handy given the "no indoor dining" restrictions).

We were offered Elite breakfast in the Fire & Water Restaurant. We were allowed to choose anything on the menu up to $23/person. We went over by a bit, but were not charged for the extra. There was a nice, covered patio area with heaters for outdoor eating. Food was excellent (my friend raved about the Crab Cake Eggs Benedict). I'm attaching a copy of the menu.




First time here, and would not hesitate to go back.

How is the renovated room? Their official facebook page has some updated guest room pictures but on Marriott booking page still has the old one.

I dont think I had a renovated room. The furniture looked heavy and the decor was like something youd expect in Alexandria, Egypt.

Victoria is high on my list of Canadian destinations in addition to Halifax once the borders reopen. I do wonder what the tourism industry looks like in YYJ now that its dependent on domestic travelers only.

Just got back from a stay at this property. Attempted to use SNAs, was denied. Requested a suite upgrade via chat before checkin, and again at checkin, both denied. The hotel appeared to be fully booked - I tried checking to see if there were any suites available for my dates and no rooms were showing at all for that week and the week after. I was upgraded from a base room to a M-Club level room, but not the side that facing the harbour. The room is renovated, BUT... the bathroom was not. Well maintained, strong water pressure, but looks like you stepped through a time warp. For those who care, the TV is set up to do streaming with Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, and Youtube, but the selection of normal channels is somewhat limited (mostly news, business channels, and a smattering of sports).

The Elite breakfast in the restaurant is as described above - I got a voucher for each morning of my stay, good for 2 breakfasts up to $23. In practice it's 1 entree + 1 drink (if you want coffee and juice, order the All-Canadian). The crab cake benny was indeed yummy, if on the heavy side. They are somewhat short staffed - the first morning I had to wait 20 minutes to be seated even though the restaurant looked half empty, as there were only 2 servers working. There is a significant amount of patio seating with heaters and fire pits, which was nice.

Lounge is still closed, but most of the snacks and drinks in the grab-and-go shelf of the lobby was complimentary (except the Starbucks frapuccino).

Overall, a pretty good stay IMO. I'd not hesitate to come back, although I've not tried the Delta across the harbour recently.

The bathroom, not so much.

I stayed here last weekend and used an SNA to upgrade to a suite (which cleared 5 days out). I asked for a renovated suite and I was told that none of the suites are renovated yet! So it was Arabian Nights for me once again.

Well at least you had what looked like a comfortable sofa and did not have to look at that fake wood product floor and crane your head up to look at the TV mounted on the wall.
