1:30 – Our first pick is the Best Western Plus Carlton Plaza Hotel. Located by Chinatown and Centennial Plaza, it’s right next to some of our favorite restaurants and sights. Our room was perfect and exactly what we dream about as a family. Lot’s of space and great in-room amenities.

3:40 – Our favorite breakfast restaurant in Victoria already… and then there was a location IN THE LOBBY of the BW Plus! Love the Ruby!!! – we share a ton about our favorite menu items, because it’s delicious.

9:00 – The most mod hotel we’ve ever been to:  Hotel Zed – really spacious and fun, including a fun lobby, the Ruby Restaurant, and even a water slide!  If you fly via seaplane into Victoria, the Hotel Zed will even pick you up!

10:45 – Vintage hotel booking tip: there are lots of renovated old motel or apartment buildings as chic hotels now. This is a great way to have a unique stay AND usually have lots of space.  Other renovated motel/hotels we’ve stayed at include LOGE Camps (Westport, WA and Bend, OR) and the RSVP Motel in Bozeman, MT.

Amazing shuttle and guest service! This is a quick walk to Chinatown, which is one of the best things to do in Victoria.
