Last time I was at the Empress was around 1977. You could still walk in and get a seat (I think it was October) for tea. I'm thinking it was about $8.00 USD then. Sounds like times have changed. It was great then, and probably still is. Also don't miss the provincial museum (on the third floor-- and also 30 years ago) and was really great: kind of like a small Smithsonian of SW Canadian culture and history. Great town.

I said "on the third floor", but realized that I should note that it is in another building in Victoria, and not in the Hotel.

The Empress is an impressive place, as are all the hotels build by Canadian Pacific around the turn of the century. My favorite is Chateau Lake Louise.

Empress tea is terribly smokey and strong. It's like tar.
