Historic hotel in quiet neighbourhood.
Posted Apr 4, 2017
We enjoyed our stay in the James Bay Hotel. It's a very unique building and pleasing to the eye and senses. The lobby is large with comfortable places to sit down. The hotel has a very pleasant scent; not musty at all. The rugs are in great condition as are the many stairs you must walk up and down, as there is no elevator. We were on the 3rd floor so I had my exercise! The top floor was very warm as the antique radiators were still running, due to the chilly nights, so we left our window open day and night as there is no A/C. The hotel has a great restaurant in the basement. The food was superb, although not low priced. But hubby and I often share meals so it was OK. Just down the block is the home of Emily Carr, famous BC painter. I learned on this trip that she actually died in the hotel, on the lower level, as it was once a care home. I would highly recommend this hotel.
