Helms Inn, Victoria
An Older, but Very Nice Hotel
This is an older hotel that has been very nicely redone. The location is excellent as it is near the park, the waterfront, shopping and great eateries. My room was spacious and even had a small but well equipped kitchenette.

A gem
I've stayed at Helm's Inn before. The rooms are lovely; mine felt like it had been renovated recently. Each room has a little kitchen area. It's right across from Beacon Hill Park. Also walking distance from downtown. There's no elevator so if you have trouble with stairs it might be challenging but the staff will help with bags.
