Great Location with Poor Furnishings
Although the location in James Bay was great for walking access to the Inner Harbour, downtown shopping, Beacon Hill Park and the ocean, the furnishings in this apartment were less than idea. The major problem was that the beds were way to soft, with no back support resulting in a poor night's sleep for anyone who needs a firm mattress for good back support (even the pillows were flat and provided little head support). The leather couch was also not very comfortable and definitely not a good sleeping alternative. This unit also did not have A/C or even fans, so with temperatures near 30C during the day, the upstairs apartment was very hot and stuffy, even with the windows open (without screens). Leaving the windows open at night was difficult, as it did cool off and there were no extra blankets (just heavy down comforters over the sheets, which was either too hot with it on or too cool with it off). Finally, when we arrived late in the evening, we found no paper products (toilet paper, paper towels, Kleenex, etc), but Jordan was nice enough to bring over some TP and paper towels that evening. We had a great time in Victoria viewing all of the many gardens and having several high teas and we will return to Victoria in the future, but will look for an alternate place to stay.
