This hotel is right downtown Kamloops. We were only in Kamloops for one night and wanted the downtown location. The check-in was smooth, friendly staff both at the front desk and the restaurant.

The room was small (Queen Room). Although small it could not have been cleaner and more comfortable. The beds were comfortable, which is always a plus, also the window opens (slightly).

We highly recommend this hotel. You get a complimentary full breakfast,wifi unlimited coffee in the lobby, pass to the YMCA, 10% off wine/beer at the liquor store attached to the hotel.

We had a great dinner at the restaurant in the hotel, really enjoyed the live entertainment on Saturday night.

Do not hesitate to stay here.

We spent a night in this hotel breaking out 2 day journey on Rocky Mountaineer train from Vancouver to Jasper and we loved it. We were completely exhausted from the 10 hour train journey and unfortunatelly didn't have any strength left to explore the hotel and surroundings. We just wanted a good bed and bath to regenerate and that's exactly what we got. The hotel was recently refurbished and was lovely inside. The reception area looked really cosy and welcoming and the staff greated us with smiles and were just charming. Our room was quite compact, but beautifully appointed with quality furniture, most comfortable large beds and excellent quality bedding with suede duvets. Everything was spotlessly clean and fresh: from paintwork and bath seals to sheets and glasses. A large flat screen TV and free WiFi was great. We had peaceful rest and good sleep and were ready to carry on our train journey in the morning.

Booked this hotel on line about 5 minutes prior to arrival for a one night stay on a round drive, what a good choice!
The area looks a bit run down but the hotel certainly isn't, from the helpful reception staff to the immaculately clean and comfortable room on the fifth floor with a cracking view, this place impressed.
We got an excellent deal on line at short notice, made all the better when we found all that was on offer on our arrival.
Parking was in the public pay and display car park next door but the receptionist gave us a pass to display so we didn't have to pay. The reception area was stylish with access to the equally modern restaurant, the price included access to a pool and fitness area in a separate building which we didn't visit but also Internet access and free phone calls, including international!
Also a discount in the adjoining liquor store which we did use! Breakfast was also included which was a good start to the following day, this was waitress served and not a buffet.
A pleasant walk along the river side only a few minutes away finished off a pleasant evening.
We would not hesitate to recommend this hotel.

We would recommend the Plaza for conference speakers, delegates and organisers. The general manager, and each of her staff, made it their personal goal to ensure that the rooms were prepared and ready well ahead of time and that we had everything we needed for a successful event. The rooms are stylish and clean, the beds are sumptuous and spotless. They provide the opportunity to get great rest. The events co-ordinator, Tania, was efficient, upbeat and a key component to a successful stay. We would recommend the Plaza to others. The complimentary breakfast, was simple, delicious and included eggs, great bacon and sausages, fresh bagels, croissants, fresh fruit, fresh juices and toast. A rewarding stay, with all the benefits of being in the heart of the city. Finally, a hotel that provides decent pens!

Room Tip: The spacious suites are perfect for a longer stay, very well equipped, stylish and comfortable.

The wedding reception was perfect because the staff at the Plaza go far and beyond what anyone would expect. Professionalism and a personal friendly touch are combined to make the experience memorable.
We had several rooms in the Plaza -- bridal suite to the single suite. Each room was immaculately clean and tastefully decorated. Guests were there for both Friday and Saturday nights and openly stated that they slept well in the quiet hotel.
The meals in the restaurant are delicious,, with a complimentary buffet breakfast with all the usual goodies.
A wonderful experience. A good time had by all. If you want unique and memorable -- the Plaza should be your first choice when visiting Kamloops.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with history

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
