The Empress

We arrived in Victoria on a sunny afternoon. We just had to walk a short ways across the street to check into our hotel. The Empress is a beautiful hotel my husband and I had stayed here once before. Evie was looking forward to staying at the legendary Empress.

 My husband had a room upgrade coupon from his previous travels so we used hat to get a bigger room. Holy Cow, were we surprised when we walked into our room! 

The room was large, but opened into an entire other massive room overlooking the harbour.

This is about 4 times the size of our living room at home!
Along with a coupon for cookies and milk to be delivered…bedtime snack.

We went out for a walk and when we came back they had left this welcome snack in our room! This is the life, cookies and milk delivered to her in bed by a maid! Never going to happen again, so I took photo evidence to make sure she remembers this. Though I am sure this will be a childhood memory she will not forget!
