Magnolia Hotel & Spa Offers Spooktacular Fright Nights This October
Trick or treat? Magnolia Hotel & Spa’s Fright Night package, from $179*, offers the best of both worlds this Halloween with the sweetness of a stay at Victoria’s leading boutique hotel combined with the thrills of a walking tour of the city’s spookiest corners.
Join Magnolia Hotel & Spa in getting into the Halloween spirit with their Fright Night package. Check into your spine-tingling Superior Room and enjoy an evening of ghostly goings-on with Discover the Past’s Ghostly Walks tour. Revive yourself the next morning with a continental breakfast for two at Catalano Restaurant & Cicchetti Bar.
As the oldest city in the Pacific Northwest, Victoria has a torrid history that really comes alive during the month of October. Just steps from the Inner Harbour, Magnolia Hotel & Spa is the perfect base to stroll around Victoria, taking in the vivid fall colours and getting to know the ghosts in BC’s most haunted city.
On your Ghostly Walk you’ll wander through the dark streets of the historic Bastion Square in the heart of Old Town, but beware of the resident ghosts that still occupy the old brick buildings. Listen to the stories of the Maritime Museum, built on the site of Victoria’s jail and first gallows and the Parliament buildings, which is visited by the ghost of the architect who designed them; Francis Mawson Rattenbury.
“We’re offering a frightfully good time at Magnolia Hotel & Spa this fall,” says Bill Lewis, General Manager at Magnolia Hotel & Spa. “Come back from your ghost tour to a sweet treat from us in your room. Don’t worry… we’ve checked under the bed and there is nothing that will go bump in the night here.”
Victoria is stuffed full of spooky activities this fall from a chilling zipline experience to haunted horse-drawn trolley rides, a Halloween masquerade ball and spirited dining at Merridale Ciderworks. For a sweet treat, head to Roger’s Chocolates Shop at 913 Government Street, Victoria’s oldest, most famous and most haunted chocolate shop.
