November 4, 2008 – Magnolia Hotel & Spa Ranks in Top 10 by Condé Nast Readers

(Victoria, British Columbia) - The 21st annual Condé Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards has placed the Magnolia Hotel & Spa, Victoria’s four-diamond, European-style luxury boutique hotel, as number seven on the top 30 Canadian Hotels list.

The Readers’ Choice Award shows, once again, that the outstanding personalized service and attention to detail defined and perfected at The Magnolia Hotel & Spa is truly appreciated. Professional, courteous staff has become the unquestioned hallmark of The Magnolia through an uncommon commitment to helpful, responsive and attentive service.

The 21st annual Readers’ Choice Awards, voted on by over 32,000 Condé Nast readers, is really a triple celebration. Victoria shared third spot with Quebec City for top city in the Americas. Victoria and The Magnolia Hotel are situated on Vancouver Island which was ranked as the top North American Island. Magnolia guests and Condé Nast readers are often ‘luxury-level vagabonds’ who enjoy the wilderness, dynamic maritime wonderland, culture and heritage of Vancouver Island, then, coming home to the Magnolia.

Centrally located just steps away from Victoria’s picturesque Inner Harbour, galleries, entertainment and the city’s best shops, the Magnolia caters to business and vacation travelers, along with their pets. Guests enjoy local cuisine in the newly renovated in-house restaurant where fine food is paired with local wine selections or at the in-house micro brewery. Spa Magnolia, a full service AVEDA Lifestyle Spa, offers personalized treatments to rebalance, rejuvenate and refresh.

Magnolia’s guestrooms feature downtown and harbor views, custom-designed enchanting two-poster beds, floor to-ceiling windows that open, and fireplaces in diamond level rooms. In-room complimentary amenities include gourmet coffee, hand made toffee, apples and bottled spring water. The opulent bathrooms feature marble cladding, glass walk-in shower and deep soaker tub for the ultimate in bathing and relaxation. Attention to detail and service are in evidence everywhere, with fresh flowers, spiced hot-apple cider and fruit in the lobby. All that luxury, including generous room sizes, is contained in only 64 rooms, so each guest is treated lavished with attention.

Fall is the perfect time to enjoy Magnolia’s Shop & Spa Package from $185.00 which includes luxurious overnight accommodation in a Superior room, evening turndown service, deluxe continental breakfast and a 30 minute spa treatment.
