Happy BC Day!

Posted in By mark

Just a little reminder of the amazing place the people in this downtown Victoria hotel call home and our visitors have come to see.   We are here to help you put your BC adventure together so be sure to chat with any of us.  We are happy to help.   Happy BC day.


I heard someone say it is to hot out there today

We do have air conditioning at the Chateau Victoria but if you are without AC, perhaps this will cool you off.  Enjoy!



For the people who know our city, a snow day like the video is rare just like the heat you might feel on this BC day long weekend.

Keith Levang is our Artist in Residence

Please join us in welcoming Keith as he adds colour and warmth to our lobby for the month of August. You can see Keith and other Victoria Artists throughout downtown Victoria hotels in August as part of Artishow Victoria.  The Chateau Victoria is one of five hotels in Victoria participating.

Keith was born and raised in Vancouver, BC and now reside on Vancouver Island where he is  fully engaged in the visual arts and painting full time.   He exhibits his work mostly on Vancouver Island, Vancouver & Metro Vancouver.

“My representational style of painting allows me to present the subject faithfully while maintaining the feel and look of a painting, rather than a photograph.  My approach is to concentrate on the relationship between light & shadow within a strong composition.”

‘I try to capture a specific moment in time, one that recalls a familiar place, memory or feeling. I have spent my life on the Canadian West Coast.  The images of the sea, shoreline, mountains and  occasionally, boats & buildings, are the ones which inspire me to want to preserve that familiarity on canvas.’
