Fairmont Empress, Victoria, Canada
Named after the queen's great-great grandmother Queen Victoria, Fairmont Empress is a longstanding favourite among travelling royals. Then Princess Elizabeth first visited in 1951 with then Prince Phillip of Greece, just a year before she became queen. She has since visited so frequently that she even has her own royal china, bought exclusively for her use by the hotel.
The hotel’s famous afternoon tea is served on replicas of the tea set gifted to the hotel by King George VI and his wife, Queen Elizabeth. Guests can book the Royal Suite which overlooks the Parliament Buildings and Inner Harbour. (She even has her own royal china, bought exclusively for her use by the hotel.)
