Welcome to your harbour view getaway in the heart of Victoria's Old Town. This top floor suite looks out onto the ocean where you can watch rowers, kayakers, harbour ferries, and even hot tub boats. See the bridge lift up to accommodate tall ships, and watch the sun set behind Vic West from your cozy window seat above the harbour. When you're not out enjoying our beautiful city, you can cozy up in bed with the fireplace on, and see the bridge and city lights beyond.

The space
The 511 is the top floor corner unit in the historic Janion building. The entire building was renovated in 2016 and there are huge photos throughout the building that show this meticulous renovation. Hearths saved from the rooms in the old hotel are also peppered through the building.
The suite is clean and bright, with soft, cozy furnishings for lazy mornings watching the ships go by, or long evenings watching the sun go down over the water.

You will find a pair of binoculars to get a close up view of the action around you, and plenty of books about Victoria and its history in the suite.
There are two common areas in the building, including a bright, beautiful conference room on the main floor for business meetings, and a rooftop patio with barbeque and indoor space, including a kitchen, for larger gatherings.

There is also a gym on the lower floor, and a whole world of bike paths, foot paths, beaches, restaurants, boutique shops, interesting stores in Chinatown, pubs, and much, much more. There couldn't be a better location to explore the city.

Note: Some construction noise should be expected due to next door property build between 7AM and 2PM, Monday to Friday

Where you’ll be

Victoria, British Columbia, Canada

I love Victoria's Old Town with its restored historic buildings, its pretty lights, and its bustling energy. In the past few years, it has become a hub for everything creative and fun. There are tone of fabulous restaurants, pubs, patios, and boutique shops, all owned and operated by local business people. Not only that, but North America's oldest Chinatown is right next to Old Town. There are fantastic grocery stores, boutiques and restaurants to check out.
