Four-legged ambassador to welcome guests at Victoria’s Empress Hotel

Published on : Wednesday, January 9, 2019

Victoria’s iconic Fairmont Empress Hotel announced a new staff member – a two-year old Labrador retriever cross named Winston.



The canine ambassador will be the first ever for the Vancouver Island luxury hotel located directly on Victoria’s waterfront.



“He has such a big personality and a sunny disposition and will be a tremendous asset to the hotel,” Empress Public Relations Director Tracey Drake told.



“Whether children staying at the hotel need a friendly paw, nervous travelers need Winston to help with stress relief, or a visiting family is looking for a good dog to show them the town – these are all parts of true wellness that we are thrilled to bring to Fairmont Empress.”



A former Canadian Guide Dog for the Blind, Winston is named after one of the Empress’ most famous guests, Winston Churchill.



Staff say Winston – the animal version – has a striking resemblance to the former Prime Minister of the United Kingdom when you focus on his jowls.



The Fairmont hotels in Vancouver, Lake Louise and Banff also have four-legged ambassadors. Winston can be found at the front desk of the Government Street hotel Monday to Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
