Celebrate Christmas with the Magnolia Hotel & Spa

Seasonal package options to make the most of the holidays this winter

Victoria’s leading boutique hotel welcomes guests to embrace the city’s wealth of Christmas experiences, independent shops and culinary treats this festive season.

“Christmas in Victoria never disappoints,” says Bill Lewis, general manager of the Magnolia Hotel & Spa. “From our Inner Harbour location, the city’s impressive light displays are minutes away, along with artisan boutiques and local brands for gifts that will delight on Christmas morning, and the city’s popular festive events and traditions that guests return for every year.”

The Magnolia Hotel & Spa has created two holiday packages to ensure a merry end to the year.

Spark the spirit with the Holiday Shopping package and enjoy a pre-Christmas shopping trip to Victoria. Indulge in a festive retreat to gather gifts for loved ones, while some self-pampering will ensure guests enter the season feeling refreshed and bright. After a day spent purchasing treasures for Christmas morning, return to the sanctuary of the hotel’s spacious rooms, and enjoy dinner at the award-winning The Courtney Room, with $50 credit included in the package price. Or enjoy the restaurant’s delicious Prix Fixe 3-course lunch menu, delivering exceptional value at just $29 per person. The package also includes a continental breakfast each morning, a luxurous re-usable shopping bag – as Victoria is a Bring Your Own Bag city – and a selection of Curated Trail maps including Beautiful Boutiques, to help guests explore. Prices start from $249 per night and the package runs from November 1st to December 15th, 2019.

Plan your trip to take advantage of some of Victoria’s popular events including: the 2019 Craft Spirit Festival at Merridale Cidery in the Cowichan Valley (November 9th); the 11th annual Habitat for Humanity Victoria Gingerbread Showcase (November 16th to January 5th); the 38th annual Island Farms Santa’s Light Parade (November 30th); The Nutcracker ballet with Ukrainian Shumka Dancers & Victoria Symphony (November 29th to December 1st); or the 39th Annual Dickens Fair (December 7th).

Closer to Christmas, ring in the season with a well-deserved getaway and see Victoria at its finest with the Victoria Christmas package. Spend time exploring the city’s twinkling lights, Christmas parades and carollers or simply relax and enjoy the peaceful atmosphere of the Magnolia Hotel & Spa. The package includes $75 each day to enjoy some of the hotel’s experiences including reviving treatments and pamper sessions at Spa Magnolia or dinner in The Courtney Room, and see why it was featured in Canada’s 100 Best Restaurants 2019. Enjoy hot mulled apple cider and seasonal treats in the hotel’s lobby, a holiday themed welcome gift from The Courtney Room kitchen and a daily continental breakfast. Rates start from $259 per night, available December 15th, 2019 to January 5th, 2020.
