Best Western Carlton Plaza Hotel

We are staying in a studio suite with a kitchen for almost a month. The staff are very welcoming and go out of their way to ensure your comfort. The suite is perfect for a couple and we will not stay in any other hotel in the future. Highly recommend for short or long stays. Will even be better when the new renovated restaurant opens in March.

My husband and I have been staying in a kitchen studio unit here since mid December and plan to stay awhile longer. The hotel is clean, walking distance to the Harbour, both of which are very important to us. However, the icing on the cake is the exceptional staff, from Chris the manager, down to every staff member. Staff are always friendly, and offering to help out in any way they can. Clear to us that they are very well trained, very happy in their roles as many have been here for long periods of time. Truly an enjoyable experience and look forward to spending more time here next winter.

The front desk staff were probably the nicest hotel staff I have ever encountered! They upgraded my room for free, since we had 4 people at the last minute but thought we were only going to have three. After we got into the room, I received text messages asking how the room was so far and if I needed anything else to let them know. The location is perfect! They have a valet service that parks your car for you and I didn’t need it at all for the next 2 days because everything is within walking distance. It was 8$ a day parking, good deal for knowing your car is put away safely.I received a phone call from the front desk the day we were checking out and she said “take your time, you have until 1pm.” 1pm!? No hotel ever lets me stay until 1pm! They were so quick to answer any questions we had about restaurants or anything we were looking for in the area. If I go back to Victoria, which I hope I do, I’m totally staying there again. Thank you!

Stayed here for one night in November and everything was great. The room had all of the amenities you could need and was fairly modern. Service was top notch and they text you during your stay to ensure everything is going well which is a nice touch! Perfect location in downtown Victoria, and would for sure stay here again. Side note that Valet parking was only $8 which is a fantastic price!

Service at this downtown B.W. is great, being very friendly and helpful. The room, 2 dble beds, was smallish but very comfortable, and in spite of the street, very quiet by early evening. Very good restaurants are within easy walking distance, as is a theater (MacPherson Playhouse) if you are interested. The central location is a plus.
The valet parking is a great feature, and is free. Our car was made available by 7:30 am for an appointment.
The onsite restaurant is not bad at all and serves a very nice breakfast.

Our check in was quick and efficient, the staff, especially Cal, were friendly and knew their stuff. Our original assigned room was next to the elevator so we asked for a different room which was handled without fuss and we even got a free upgrade (as we were in town for my birthday) to a suite.
The suite was at the front of the hotel and this meant that there was a fair bit of traffic noise from the street four floors below us (they provide a pair of ear plugs so I had no trouble sleeping though). My advice would be to ask for a room at the back of the hotel or as high up as possible.

A friend and I stayed in the Best Western Carlton Plaza as part of a travel package. The hotel itself is pretty standard fare: nothing special, but clean, sufficiently appointed and in easy walking distance of restaurants and shopping. What made the stay was the staff. Everyone we talked with was exceptionally welcoming and well-informed. Cal was particularly helpful when we asked about where we could find a good “full English” breakfast, suggesting we take advantage of the hotel’s attached restaurant, the London Tube. Ordinarily, I’d be wary of an in-house recommendation, but her description of the menu and the care with which they prepared the meals won us over — as did the eggs benedict I enjoyed the next morning. Better still, our waiter responded to a question about where we could buy fruit with a list of options complete with directions.

My wife and I stayed for 2 nights to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Hotel was clean and conveniently located near Chinatown and about a 15 minute walk to the Inner Harbour. A 20 minute walk with luggage from the Coho Ferry, 5 minutes by taxi. Staff were very helpful and friendly. Free bicycle rental was an unexpected amenity, with easy ride across Johnson Street bridge to the Galloping Goose trail along the water.

Nice room, walking distance to harbor, china town and great restaurants! Excellent customer service. Hotel offers nice bikes for rental, which we wish we knew about before! Parking located at walking distance from hotel- public parking (refer to attached map). I forgot my sunglasses at the hotel and they were sent back to Ontario by the hotel.

We really enjoyed our stay here. We were in a king suite, with a very comfortable bed. Clean and spacious.
The people who work here are top notch helpful and fun!
Loved the space in the suite for an extended stay. I would think this would be good for work travelers or people who needed to make small meals for themselves too.
London Tube restaurant downstairs was REALLY good though…
The room was lacking in any color, very grey and brown, but clean and very comfy and easy to navigate. Business modern if you will.
Downside may be that you have to Valet park or look for on street parking. It’s an urban neighborhood, but totally safe.
The view is roof tops, which for us is fun and what we wanted, as we live on the water already…It really was an easy walk to anywhere. Good people watching.
Highly recommend.

This hotel is definitely within walking distance to most of downtown Victoria. The building is very clean with no visible wear and tear and all facilities are modern and up to date. I didn’t get a chance to use the workout facilities, but the room looked very accommodating. For those who want to explore Victoria without driving, the hotel offers complimentary bicycles (with helmets) for this bicycle friendly city. For those tourists from Seattle taking the Victoria Clipper, consider an overnight package offered by the Clipper and get a great room for almost half price. Additionally, if you have status with Best Western you can get an upgraded to a room with cooking facilities . Didn’t eat at The Tube restaurant, but the menu looked very good. Even though there is no free overnight street parking, valet parking at $7.50 nightly is well worth it. Brandon at the front desk was very accommodating and went that extra mile to make our visit a pleasant one.

Best Western Carlton Plaza Hotel

Best Western Carlton Plaza Hotel RoomAs a local tourguide I travel all over the world. I have been in my fair share of hotels.
So I can definately tell you what is good, bad and not worth visiting.
The BW Carlton Hotel in Victoria?
Great deal!

I have stayed in this hotel many many years and many many times.
It almost feels like coming home.
The location of this hotel can nót be better!
Everything you need is in crawling distance!
There is a Seven Eleven across the street, a local supermarket around the corner, great restaurants in the two connecting main Streets (Douglas and Government Street) and you do not even need to go anywhere!

Why not?
The hotel has a great restaurant on site.
It is called London Tube.
You can have a good breakfast there and also perfect lunch or dinner.
Try the Salmon Burger with fries!
Delicious!!

The staff of this hotel is more than friendly.
They greet you upon arrival, are profesional and are willing to help you with anything.
Just ask!
If you would like to get some information about the city? The receptionist will give you detailed info. Do you want to book a whale tour? Ask the receptionist, they can book it immediately for you! They also have the latest updated info with what company has had whale sightings that morning! They are in contact with the suppliers.

Do you need a bike? Talk to the receptionists; the hotel offers a free bike rental for 3 hours.
Energy left? The hotel has a very good fitness room.
Dirty clothes? The hotel has a laundry facility for two loonies with free soap.

What I like more?
It is a silenc hotel. So after 23:00 one of the two elevators shuts down and it is quiet in the rooms and on the floors.
So you can enjoy your stay to the max here!

The rooms?
I have been in all rooms possible and the beds are great!!
Some rooms have a small kitchen and the supermarket is close by.
Otherwise there is a supermarket on Yates if you need more stuff.

Do not think any further.
Book this hotel, you will not regret it!
