“Good Hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 9, 2012

We stayed only for one night.We reached hotel at 5.30 pm from Rocky Moutain train.By this time all the shops were closed and the town looked dead.The room was good with comfortable king size bed,free internet,tea/coffee matchine,fridge,safe.The only problem was small lift.We arrived in a big group so everybody had to wait for their turn.The liquor shop was in the same building on the ground floor.It was centrally located on main Victoria Street.The reception staff was very helpful and gave us the refrence of a good Indian restaurant Maurya's which was just 5 minutes walk from hotel.We left early in the morning so could not eat breakfast.On the whole worth staying.

Room Tip: Try to book a room on higher floor because the hotel is on main road and during busy hours it might...

Stylish decor, clean and nicely decorated rooms, very soft bedding and great view from the room. Staff was excellent, will come back and recommend to friends. Didn't have the chance to check out the pool or fitness facility. The location is also excellent, great river front parks within 2 minutes walking distance. Good job!

Room Tip: The staff will help you choose the right room, they let us go up and have a look first

stayed several times at the plaza. Very conveinent down town location. The beds are very comfortable, pillows too. The rooms are small but adaquit. Some rooms only have showers but ask for a tub and they will find you one. The Delux King is a very nice room but when i'm by my self the heritage rooms are ok. Free parking and free breakfast. Friendly saff always nice. Only think needs changing are the old windows need an up grade. All in all very a very nice hotel with lots of character.

Room Tip: rooms are small if you want a larger room try a King

Yesterday I ate at the Plaza for the first time. They have their own smoker and so the range of delicious slow smoked meats was mouth watering. I had some of the slooooow cooked pulled pork and I got to have the cobb salad with home smoked chicken (yep I'm a carnivore!). There's lots of choice on the menu and all made with care and attention. One member of staff who served me yesterday have been there for over 40 years! They couldn't do more to make guest feel welcome.

Good hotel only there for one night on through trip.Strange that the hotel has only one lift that only holds 4 people, when you have a large group, if you are on the 5th floor as we were it took some time tio get there. However the room is very good perhaps the most comforable bed I have slept in on the whole trip.Bit disappointed with Kamloops arrived there at 1700 and most of the place was shut If you didn't want to eat in the hotel restaurant, the only other place open was Boston Pizza. However it didn't spoil the experience

Adorably renovated hotel featuring an awesome breakfast and super-clean rooms. Staff was extremely accommodating and the location downtown was nice. However, be sure to take a room off of the main street --especially if it is on the weekend. There is a liquor store below the hotel and several clubs within a block, so on a saturday night things get pretty lively out there. Windows are thin, so a lot of the noise came through into our room until around 3:30 am. Inside the hotel is very quiet.

Room Tip: A room off the main street might be quieter.

Walk into the past but all modern amenities. I have rated it higher because it is charming and the staff are very friendly. I was upgraded to a junior suite which is a lovely large room with a couch and sitting area where you can watch a nice Samsung HD TV. The room is large enough that it was almost hard to view the tv from bed. The unique features of this hotel are firstly free international phone calls, a feature I have never seen before in an age where hotels want to charge you $1.50 for a local call. Second, 10% off for guests in the attached liquor store, and third free breakfast. You also have free access to the Y a few blocks away. The rooms are air conditioned although they still have the old silver radiators in the room, although I'm not sure they are functional. The only downside is that I was facing the main drag and there are some Kamloopians (not sure that is correct) that like to race their engines late at night. The bar and lounge are also heritage and I didn't eat dinner but the menu looked good. Central location and will stay again but maybe face a different direction.

Room Tip: ask for a room that does not face onto Victoria Street but go for the suite
