If you're looking for a hotel that is comfortable, reputable, and centrally located without breaking the bank, the Best Western Carlton Plaza is the place for you. Realistically, most hotels gouge visitors during the high season. But if you're looking to save some money, head away from the hotels that border the inner harbour. The Carlton Plaza is located right in the heart of downtown. It's about a 10 minute walk to the inner harbour. But during that walk, you can enjoy the shops along Government Street. It's also a hop, skip and a jump to Chinatown and the Bay Shopping Centre and extremely accessible to the #17 highway to the Ferries and #1 highway to head up island. There are basic amenties on site including a fitness centre and a restaurant but the staff are very friendly! They also offer free passes to the YMCA downtown swimming pool if you really want to go swimming! If you're looking for value - this is the place to be! Furthermore, all whale watching companies and tour bus operators pick up guests for free from the hotel if you don't feel like walking!

Unique Quality: The greatest unique quality of this hotel is its location. It is the only hotel in the heart of downtown Victoria. It is the closest accomodation 3.5 star accomodation to Chinatown, the Bay Centre, and the Save on Foods Centre (if you're in town for a concert). It is also a heritage building built in the early 1900's. But don't let that worry you. All the rooms were recently renovated and feature complimentary bottles of water and complimentary wireless internet. They even have bikes which they loan to guests for two hours at a time on a complimentary basis! They have 4 bikes so that the whole family can go for a bike ride together! Helmets and bike locks are included! Also, if you're travelling with the family, they offer suites with kitchenettes and a pull-out sofa which is only an extra $20 per night. The only downside is that being right downtown, there is the possibility of being subjected to noise.

Directions: It's at the corner of Johnson and Douglas St right beside the Aveda Institute!
