Welcome to a new way to communicate with you

Posted in By mark

We are very proud to introduce our new website for the Chateau Victoria.  It joins two other new sites that we launched this fall. Clive’s Classic Lounge and Vista 18, our roof top restaurant and martini bar.   Our goal is to add to the great personal contact we already have with our guests.  Sure, the site is built to sell our bedrooms, suites and all the services we offer.  However, many of our guests look to us as the people who can help make the most of their stay.  Our goal is to become your local expert in all things Victoria and perhaps a little entertaining.   There is so much information at your fingers it is hard to figure out what to do, so we will try our best to help you.  At the moment, the site is mostly about us, but as we hear from you and learn from you, the content will become much more balanced.

So let the dialog begin.   Hit that comment button on this blog or the contact button at the bottom of the page and tell us what you think of our website.  Be sure to note what you would like us to add.  we will do our best to continue to build, what we hope will be,  a great point of reference in the months and years to come.  Your local experts.

We look forward to connecting with you.

Haunted Victoria at Night

Posted in By mark

Okay, Halloween  has passed but Victoria’s dead still walk among us.  Are there ghosts walking on the land where the Chateau Victoria stands?  You will have to discover that for yourself.  Perhaps a late night stroll with those in the know might help you.  Enter here to find out more.  You might find yourself being lead by one of our own.
