The Magnolia Hotel & Spa in Canada has a new bounce in its step this spring, with fully refreshed, stylishly-designed guestrooms and a brand new restaurant concept about to launch. The spacious 64-guestrooms have each been fully refurbished, anchoring this boutique hotel as one of Victoria’s finest and most sought-after addresses. Throughout the newly decorated guestrooms, a sense of timeless elegance pervades, with a lighter colour palate of taupe, smoke and pearl. Each guestroom and bathroom boasts a renewed lustre, yet still in keeping with the traditionally-inspired feel. Plush textures and elegant patterns adorn the carpet, drapes, bed cover and upholstered lounge chairs, surrounded by subtle, raw-silk inspired vinyl walls.
“With such a loyal clientele, we thought hard and carried out considerable research before moving forward with the guestroom refresh,” said General Manager Bill Lewis. “The understated elegance of the rooms and quality of furnishings goes hand-in-hand with our attention to detail on the customer service side. With this indomitable offering, we are confident of our future as Victoria’s leading boutique hotel experience.”
In addition to a new colour palate and furnishings, the guestroom walls will be adorned with a collection of photography by BC artists, Linzy Arnott, Gary Woodburn and Rob Destrubé. These distinctive pieces are displayed on feature walls, showcasing more unusual and close up views of some of the city’s most celebrated attractions, including Craigdarroch Castle and the parliament buildings.
Vancouver-based BBA Design Consultants worked closely with the hotel owners and management team to facilitate the refurbishment, with great attention to detail. Previous hotel design projects include The Wickaninnish Inn and Black Rock Oceanfront Resort.
Next up for the Magnolia Hotel & Spa, Tom Ferris of Ferris’ Oyster Bar & Grill will open a new restaurant concept within the hotel’s lobby; Catalano Restaurant & Cicchetti Bar will bring a fresh Mediterranean-inspired eatery to Victoria’s Inner Harbour, helmed by one of the city’s most respected restaurateurs.
