... hit converts minus the first track, but 30STM and The Spiderman OST are computer crashers. These CD's are throw backs to when the music industry was trying different ways to stop piracy. I've also come up with a plan for the cities I want to hit. I cross checked loads of travel times between places and this seems like the best order: Quebec City > Montreal > Toronto > Chicago > DC > Phili > Boston > NYE. The big hitters are the buses to and from Chicago at 12 & 17 hours, but ...
Had to go to the crew office today in the morning to turn in my blue card and customs declarations sheet and pay my tab. I was really surprised to see that the drink I ordered at the crew bar was only $1.50. No wonder they all take the disco's so seriously haha!
After our last full day of working with this group of kids, Jenna*, Ben*, and Joe* (the new teen staff that replaced Mick*) and I all set out for Victoria. Today is ...
Our first stop? The laundrette! The second, a shopping
centre. We breakfasted at lunch time in Tim Holten’s. Tim Holten’s is one of those places you see
on every highway, and we had no idea what it served. Tim Holten it turns out is a purveyor sandwiches
and doughnuts – little flavoured bundles of concentrated fat and sugar in
bright colours. Mind you, they didn’t have maple syrup and bacon doughnuts,
which we just had to ...
... know if we could both stand up at the one time, or if it would be minute. We were pleasantly surprised to find a large room, king bed, huge porthole and a bathroom that is almost big enough for 2, we unpacked and headed off to explore. There is a huge indoor spa pool, that we will probably procrastinate over going to until its too late, great indoor and outdoor viewing, too many eating options and great bars.
after dinner we attended the theatre show, which was ...
... gave me lots of hugs - bless his heart the little rascal! Got to the airport, no hassles. Love it! But I have to ask - when you are travelling to the US & they have check-in kiosks - why oh why do they not have an option to print out your Customs Declaration then and there with your pertinent info (they have it already) and then you just have to sign it?! In this day and age you would think that the ability ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Traveller's Inn Downtown Victoria
We stayed briefly at the Travellers Inn Downtown recently, after pre-booking before our holiday. Douglas St is a busy road into the centre of Victoria, so beware traffic noise. The Adult Movie Hire Store opposite, (complete with neon sign), contributes to making this the less attractive end of Douglas St. However, the other end of Douglas St, near the RBC Museum is lovely, would stay around there next time. The rooms were alright, but once-white towels were now grey and thin - desperately needing replacement. Victoria is definitely worth a visit, just find a better hotel than this, even if you have to pay more.
We just stayed at this hotel after attending a concert at the Save-On-Foods Centre. A short 5 minute (at the most) walk. Perfect location for us. The first thing I did notice about this hotel was actually the smell. A very strange smell.... After you got used to that it was OK. The bed was semi comfortable. The thing that I noticed was the rooms were very quiet and very dark with the curtains.
I was very disappointed when I arrived the hotel. The lobby was very small and there was no washroom on the main floor! I arrived earlier than the check in time and asked if we could leave our lugguages in their luggage room or check in earlier if my room was ready. Of course, no room was available for early check-in. Also, we could leave the luggages there but still needed to show up at 3pm to bring our own lugguages back to our own room, the cleaning lady would not do that for us!!!
Surprisingly Quiet for a Downtown Location
We had a very comfortable nights sleep in the huge king sized bed. The staff were friendly, accommodating and efficient. Very good location and handy to walk to restaurants. Parking no problem. Thanks.
Travelled with another couple that didn't want to spend a lot of money. I checked the site for this location and the picture does not match the room. They, of course, put their best room on the site. Don't be fooled, this is more like a 2 Star if you are using the U.S. and European standards. The beds are very comfortable, rooms were painted but needed a little work. So much furniture, hard to move around when sharing with another person. Nice touch in-room coffee and also coffee and tea downstairs in the a.m. Location is not the best, but there are local buses close by that you can take to Buchart Gardens or downtown. The staff very friendly and willing to help. There was a mix up with the free shuttle guy, waited over 1/2 hour to pick us up, but he kept apologizing for the delay. All in all, if you are looking for a three star and above, look elsewhere. If you are comfortable with a two star, this would be the place.
I was in the city for a conference at the University of Victoria and stayed at this hotel. I had a very good room but what impressed me the most was the service I received from Claudia at the desk and a housekeeper. They were both cordial and efficient.
We stayed one night in Traveller's Inn Downtown and really found it to be quite run-down. The chairs were filthy (who knows when they were last cleaned or what was on them), the towels threadbare and the baseboard heater broken (luckily it was summer and not needed). The hotel attracts younger people who like to party -- we had the Marines above us which did not make for a restful night. I would suggest paying a few extra dollars and staying somewhere NICE.
if you think this is a budget hotel , you are in a trap,u will end up paying 30 bucks more than the rates they offer. And if u want their free continental breakfast better wake up at 7 and go down.We went to the lobby around 8:30 and had to be content with coffee and orange juice . The rooms are too stuffy and the A/C makes too much of noise.
With regards to the Air Conditioning Units, we have modern Air-Conditioning, and the majority are only 2 years old. They were recently serviced as well for the summer season.
It is thanks to guests like you who provide us with constructive criticism and feedback that we are able to improve our services.
