BBA Design Consultants facilitates Magnolia Hotel & Spa upgrade

The Magnolia Hotel & Spa in Canada is renovating its guestrooms, and is also launching a brand new restaurant concept.

The 64-guestrooms have each been fully refurbished. Throughout the newly decorated guestrooms, there is now a color palate of taupe, smoke and pearl. Each guestroom and bathroom boasts a renewed luster, yet still in keeping with the traditionally-inspired feel. Plush textures and elegant patterns adorn the carpet, drapes, bed cover and upholstered lounge chairs, surrounded by raw-silk inspired vinyl walls.

In addition to a new color palate and furnishings, the guestroom walls are adorned with a collection of photography by BC artists, Linzy Arnott, Gary Woodburn and Rob Destrubé. These pieces are displayed on feature walls, showcasing views of some of the city’s attractions, including Craigdarroch Castle and the parliament buildings.


Vancouver-based BBA Design Consultants worked with the hotel owners and management team to facilitate the refurbishment. Previous hotel design projects include The Wickaninnish Inn and Black Rock Oceanfront Resort.

Next up for the Magnolia Hotel & Spa, Tom Ferris of Ferris’ Oyster Bar & Grill will open a new restaurant concept within the hotel’s lobby; while Catalano Restaurant & Cicchetti Bar will bring a fresh Mediterranean-inspired eatery to Victoria’s Inner Harbour.
