I always stay here because the staff is great. The staff are exceedingly helpful as they know the hotel doesn't have the cachet of the Inner Harbour or Government Street.
(Be aware this is an older building that management is continually upgrading so set your expectations accordingly. Yes, Victoria has its share of street people but they usually keep to themselves and the city & community partners are doing what they can to be of assistance. If you want a spectacular view, then pay an extra $300 during summer high season to stay at The Empress or waterfront or just get out and walk from the Carlton Plaza. )
You get value for the money because of the people and the location of the Carlton Plaza. This is very close to the Victoria Jazz festival which is centred around City Hall area and accessible to the Inner Harbour, Chinatown, buses, and Market on Yates. You can even walk off the pounds from the Fish & Chips at Ogden Point/Fisherman's Wharf and great organic fare back to this hotel.
I come for the location and return for the staff!
