1403 West is a place to remember. It’s a Victoria sanctuary where you can enjoy a morning cup of coffee or romantic glass of wine while watching seagulls soar by at eye level.
Located in the vibrant, and wonderfully walkable downtown Victoria, you are close to all the places people come to Victoria to experience and enjoy. 1403 West’s space is relaxing and inviting, contemporary yet warm, comfortable, and not at all pretentious where you wake up to views of the city, the inner harbour and distant mountain vistas.
In the evenings, the 14th floor panorama offers you sunsets year-round from inside the 8-foot high glass “4th wall” with its north to west to south views as well as from the spacious 460 square foot wrap around outdoor deck with its refreshing breezes. So, whether you are an early riser watching the sunrise’s light wake-up Victoria, or you prefer sleeping in, relaxing, and being as leisurely as you like, the views from 1403 West are spectacular day and night.
This secure location with its easy to access underground, double gated parking is perfect for 2 or 4 guests. Your ample parking space is just outside the door to the elevators, which makes transferring your luggage to the 14th floor a breeze.
1403 West is conveniently located close to Victoria’s fabulous restaurants, markets, sports/concert arena, Chinatown, the inner harbour, government buildings, Imax, Beacon Hill park, the Galloping Goose Trail as well as the other attractions for which the capitol city of British Columbia is known.
Whether you are vegan, gluten-free or regular diner, your biggest dilemma, however, may be deciding which of Victoria’s fabulous restaurants you can get around to in just a week’s time. Of course, you are welcome to stay with us for two weeks to simplify your task. (http://www.tourismvictoria.com/things-to-do/restaurants/).
If you decide to stay in for breakfast, make it in your well-stocked kitchen while looking out at the inner harbour, and the coastal range mountains listening to your favourite music playing in the entertainment centre. The public market and Yates Street markets are within short walking distances, and can provide all your culinary needs with much to choose from for you vegans and gluten-free folks too. Or if you prefer, take the elevator downstairs to the locally owned Macchiato Caffe & Paninoteca (macchiatocaffe.ca) where you can get freshly baked pastries, bread, bagels, coffee, teas, juice, ciders or a London Fog to help get your morning started.
For you runners, hikers and bikers, explore the Goose, the world class Galloping Goose Trail (http://www.gallopinggoosetrail.com/), which begins just a few blocks away at the Johnson Street Bridge. It offers 60 km of fantastic sights along the meandering trail from coastal waters to forest.
Bike rentals are available in Victoria from May to the early part of October. Bring your saddle and pedals to personalize the rental bikes. And be sure to make your arrangements before arrival. If you choose to bring your own bike, please check with Victoria Prime for convenient bike storage as bikes are not allowed in the building.
And for you water sport enthusiasts, kayaking and canoeing opportunities abound. From coastal kayaking the Juan de Fuca Strait with its whales and orcas to the Haro Strait and to the calmer experience of inner harbour and the Gorge Waterway, there are no shortages of experiences awaiting you.

Welcome to Victoria, the shining crown of Canada’s west coast.
Bike storage can be a tricky issue. Every building has a different bike storage policy and there are no guarantees that spots will be available. Every building has a zero tolerance for bikes in the lobbies or elevators, fines will be issued for such. If you are bringing a bicycle, please check beforehand for bike storage options. We recommend renting bikes while you are here, many of the bike rental companies will allow them to be stored there at the end of the day even if you rent them for a week.
If you have a large vehicle, please be sure and check the garage clearance for the building to make sure your vehicle will fit.
