    Hi I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions for us. We're planning to goto Victoria, BC this winter; for 2 nights. I looked @ the Marriott Inner Harbour as its the only big brand / reward point stay for us. But I was wondering if there was anywhere else that people have stayed & recommend.

    Although not really in Victoria (about 30 mins drive) we stayed at the Westin Bear Mountain resort and enjoyed it.

    Yeah I looked at that. I'm partial to spg, but that and even the 4p is like min drive. Since we are taking a bus in ( I think...) don't think that viable

    We stayed at a non-chain hotel(before I started collecting points or paid attention to hotel chains), that was 2 blocks from the harbor with a kitchen etc. It was basic and clean and suited our needs, plus was half the price of the chain hotels nearby. If you aren't trying to spend much time in your room you might consider it. Found it on trip advisor:
    Helm's Inn

    600 Douglas Street, Victoria, British Columbia V8V 2P8, Canada

    The Days Inn Victoria Harbor is a perfectly acceptable property, and I believe Wyndham is running a decent promo right now. It's a Days Inn, so it isn't *nice*, but the staff was pleasant and it was less than half the price of the Fairmont when I was last there in July.

    Don't miss Red Fish Blue Fish, by the way.
