I usually stay at a different hotel when I travel to Victoria, but I wanted to be in James Bay this time.
The location is very handy, and close to everything. Beacon Hill Park, the Legislature, Museum, and Inner Harbour are minutes away by foot.
The hotel itself is located on a residential street. Built in 1911, it has a 3 story walk up. No elevator. There are lovely common balconies on the upper floors to sit and catch the morning sun and people watch.
The room I had was a standard with a double sized bed. Asked for a quieter are. I was assigned 228. However it faced the ventilation fan area outside, so could be a bit loud. There are no air conditioners, and the bed was a bit lumpy. However I paid $54.
There are plenty of old time prints in the hallways. The common furniture is Edwardian in nature.
The staff were pleasant. I will return. I did not request room service, so do not know if this is available.
