Inn at Laurel Point in Victoria, BC is offering guests the opportunity to enjoy the sanctuary of luxury oceanfront accommodation by night and explore ancient Egypt by day at the Royal BC Museum with the launch of their Time of Pharaohs package.
Available this spring and summer, the package includes waterside accommodation, adult admission for two to the Royal BC Museum to view the acclaimed, “Egypt: The Time of Pharaohs,” exhibit, an Egyptian made keepsake pyramid and journal, as well as complimentary parking. Rates start at $366 Cdn per night, based on double occupancy.
Royal BC Museum visitors will be among the first in North America to view more than 300 original and priceless Egyptian artifacts, like the bust of the female Pharaoh Hatshepsut and the box coffin of Nakht. The exhibit will immerse guests in a time when pyramids dotted the skyline and people believed gods walked among us. The exhibit features artifacts dating back 4,500 years, and covers all aspects of ancient Egyptian life, from the emergence of ancient Egyptian civilization along the Nile, to the Ptolemaic and Roman eras.
The hotel is situated in a stunning central location on Victoria’s Inner Harbour and is a mere 800 metres – or four Great Pyramid lengths – from the museum. Guests may enjoy a pleasurable saunter fit for a Pharaoh along the harbour pathway to their entrance of their Egyptian experience.
This past-meets-present package provides a rich cultural experience, giving guests time in an oceanfront award-winning hotel, while providing an unforgettable glimpse into Egypt’s elaborate history. Guests may extend their visit at Inn at Laurel Point and take more time to discover BC’s capital city attractions, including the parliament buildings, Craigdarroch Castle, Butchart Gardens, Beacon Hill Park, and many others.
All guests staying at Inn at Laurel Point between June 1 and Sept. 30, 2018 have access to the hotel’s Key to the City, a discount and value-add program for locally-owned and locally-loved businesses.
