Had a "situation" with no hotel and just about everything in Victoria booked out. The staff could have taken advantage of this but did the opposite - sensing how I was feeling, the actually dropped the nightly rate to help out - didn't expect that! Good location but still a 30 minute walk to Fisherman's Wharf. Room was excellent -...

Good Morning Craig and thank you for leaving this review after your good experience at our property. I'm so very glad that our staff were able to accommodate you after what certainly must have been a stressful evening!

Vacationed in Victoria from August 16 the to the 21st. Was apprehensive of being off the harbor, but was short lived. The price was reasonable and we received a sweet upgrade when we arrived. The staff were the best. The room (upgraded to a suite), was clean and modern. Beds were comfortable. Only issue were the stupid sea gulls making...

Thank you for giving our downtown property a try on your last trip to Victoria! While it's true that we are not directly on the water, I believe that our location is one of our largest assets. Rather than being on the edge of the core, and having to walk in- we are right in the thick of it, minutes...

Last week we had the pleasure of staying at the Best Western Plus Carlton Plaza Hotel in Victoria B.C. Our stay was perfect from the time we checked in until check out.

The location is very good. Service is also good. If you are looking for a full size kitchen then you should avoid this. Every now and then we had to ask for stuff. The food at the restaurant is very average.

Hello and thank you for taking the time to write this review. Our kitchen suites have full kitchens, rather than kitchenettes in them. They have a stove, full sized refrigerator, and are stocked with all the basics, pots, pans flatware etc...

A very clean and quiet place to stay. Hotel staff exceeded ALL other staff experienced at other hotels. The only negative would be the valet parking. If one needed access to their vehicle a number of times during the day this could be an inconvenience. Fortunately we did not require access to our vehicle so that did not apply.

Hi Donald and thanks for taking a few minutes to leave us this nice review! We are located right in the heart of downtown Victoria, and as such do not have on site parking. Our parking costs $13 per night but does have an unlimited in and out, 24 hour valet service. Vehicles can be pre-scheduled to be available at...

We stayed 3 nights with our 3 teenagers in one of the suites (2 queens, sofa bed, kitchen).

This is a great downtown hotel if you want to be central to everything. You do not need a car yet they have very reasonable valet parking if you want a car. The rooms are very big and the beds are very comfortable. I would stay here every trip to Victoria. The staff are extremely helpful and courteous.

Hello Sandra, it sounds like you had a great trip to the Island! You are correct we do have parking available for $13 per night, but with everything located just a few minutes walk away, most guests find that they leave the car and explore on foot. We hope you'll stay with us again on your next trip out West!
