I read the official website as 4 ferry crossings each way per day (during the summer.)

Not that it matters - the OP is done with that portion of the trip.

Thanks gretah, but Rodi is right. You could do a day trip, but if you want to see the butchart gardens *and* get a taste of the city, then I'd recommend staying the night

I like to stay at the Union Club. It is a club with 22 rooms they open to the public. Prices are good and it's around the corner (or so) from the expensive Empress.

Last time I was there they didn't allow runners / sneakers so check on that.
You can definitely do a day crossing by ferry. We've done it. We took the earliest over and we had two choices of return ferry. We met some friends for lunch at the fancy hotel and did some shopping beforehand, and took the earlier ferry back.
