Victoria is a year-round destination — namely because it enjoys Canada’s mildest weather — so you can visit The Magnolia Hotel & Spa any time throughout the year. That said, the city’s busy season is May to October, peaking during July and August, when the sun shines most every day, so summer is prime time to travel there. If you want to avoid the city at its most crowded but still enjoy good weather, the late spring (May through mid-June) and early fall (mid-September through October) are great choices for checking into the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel. And even though Victoria may be damp and gray in the winter, the city’s museums, shops, and restaurants are all open — and far less packed than in the hectic summertime.
