About the Inn at Laurel Point

Find genuine hospitality and a serene setting in downtown Victoria at Inn at Laurel Point. With stunning views of the city’s famous Inner Harbour and serene surroundings on the edge of the capital city, Inn at Laurel Point makes every stay a remarkable one.

Sitting on six acres of parkland, Inn at Laurel Point offers guests a rare retreat. Our 200 water and gardenview rooms, inspirational meeting and event spaces, award-winning Aura restaurant, mix with ocean air and tranquil gardens to create a standout haven in the city.

The Inn’s two wings balance clean, classic design elements with a modern style that steeps our guests in tranquility from the moment they arrive to long after they’ve left. Our founders the Arsens collected art and had a passion for local and especially First Nations and Pacific Rim inspired works and artifacts. The Inn has continued to add pieces to the collection and recently designated this significant body as the Arsens Collection. Pieces from the Collection can be found on display in hallways and common gathering areas for perusal at your leisure, making every journey – from the comfort of your hotel room to the lobby, restaurant, or pool and fitness centre – full of secret surprises waiting to be discovered around every turn.

The Inn has also just added a brand-new outlet! Enjoy locally roasted coffee, a wide selection of teas, freshly baked-in-house treats, breakfast & lunch items, and more at Duo Café Bakery. More than just a café, Duo complements the offerings of Aura Restaurant, championing local producers and showcasing the culinary skills of the hotel’s talented team. Deeply rooted in Inn at Laurel Point’s commitment to sustainability, Duo Café Bakery offers compostable to-go packaging and loyalty programs for regular patrons in a warm and comfortable atmosphere.

As a locally owned social enterprise, Inn at Laurel Point is dedicated to making improvements to the hotel that prioritize social, environmental, and financial well-being in our community. We are committed to reinvesting in our team, community, and the environment, and are proud to be British Columbia’s first carbon-neutral hotel.

Come experience a stay as unique as we are.

“Every time I stay here I am always pleased with the room and service. Our room had a harbour view which made it all the more enjoyable. I will without a doubt come back here. ” — Google Review

“Excellent hotel that allows dogs. Check-in was quick. The room was spotless, the bed comfortable and the surroundings very quiet. It’s only a five-minute walk to downtown. They have a secure parking garage across the street. The staff was always very friendly.”
— Yelp Review

“Perfect spot just a short walk from downtown Victoria. Views of the inner harbour from our balcony were priceless. All of the desk staff and bellmen were incredibly friendly and accommodating, everyone made sure to acknowledge us with a smile every time they saw us. Loved the spacious room and massive bathroom. Breakfast at the Aura restaurant exceeded expectations, it was all excellent but the Seafood Benny really blew us away! Such creative and delicious fusions. Hope to stay again! ” — Trip Advisor

“View is incredible, right on the harbor! Easy to get to anything downtown.” — Expedia Review
