The decoration of the light around is so attractive at night time. We took a lot of picture. We loved walking around the city to enjoy the sightseeing at night. It is so romantic.

We walked along the inner harbour. There was only one performer during our walk. We were hoping to see more of these street performers but it was probably too early in the season. Just nice to stroll along the waterfront on a beautiful day.

Great location for walking around the sites of Victoria. Breakfast is included and has a good variety for all those picky eaters. This property has a lot of amenities that I didn't get a chance to take advantage of.

The inner harbour is beautifully with some iconic buildings on the shore. Float planes landing and taking off regularly and lots of boats coming and going.
