Delta Ocean Pointe Resort Hotel
If you want to be slightly away from downtown, still on the harbour, this might be the choice for you. The Delta is across the Johnson Street Bridge from downtown, ideally situated at the start of the Songhees Walkway (Westsong Walkway as it heads towards Westbay). One of the best walks in Victoria, the walk along the harbour to WestBay Marina may become a daily ritual for you if you stay here.
