I was travelling with my Mother and my 6 year old twin boys for a weekend holiday. My initial impression was very positive as the location of the property is ideal for sight seeing in Victoria on foot. The check-in process was not very efficient, however the desk staff was aware and gave my boys a childrens' package with the signature rubber ducks. This was a nice touch. During the week they offer a childrens' duck program for the pond that fronts the property. There are numerous ducklings in the ponds which were entertaining for my boys to watch.
The property itself has large, well appointed rooms. The bathtub is full sized (not a low edged one). The balconies off the rooms provide a variety of great views, towards the Inner Harbour or the Parliament buildings.
The room was kept very well but we did not notice some items under the bed that had not been removed from a previous stay - most people wouldn't look under the beds - we were hunting for one of the boys' toys.
The hotel was helpful arranging transport back to the airport and the bell desk was excellent in assisting my mother, getting her water to help take a pill.

This hotel is in what may have been a rooming house or possibly a large mansion in James Bay in the middle of a residential district. It is 4 blocks from the Parliament Buildings and 2 blocks from Beacon Hill Park. It has been restored quite nicely and has a nice lobby and also a veranda on the second floor. The room I stayed in was small and basic. It was clean and comfortable. There was only a shower.
Parking and Wifi are free.
There is a pub and restaurant on site. Despite this I found it very quiet.

"Wonderfully located & great retreat from the day!"
The Embassy was an older hotel that has been renovated. The room was close to most of the local attractions and only 1 block from the ocean front but was also a spacious and a wonderful retreat from our busy days of exploring Victoria.
Hotel was very easy to find and the location was terrific. A short walk from the Inner Harbor and a short drive to all the other good things to see and do in Victoria. Room lay out was very good and accommodated us nicely. Plenty of room. Staff was top notch and friendly. Breakfast buffet was plentiful and very good too. It would be my first choice to stay there.
A great hotel in Victoria, BC with an excellent harbor location, offering a delicious complimentary full breakfast …More
James Bay is the oldest neighborhood in Victoria and is full of colonial charm, sprinkled with grand Victorian houses and perfectly manicured private gardens. It is located close to downtown on the south side of the harbor and offers gems such as Fisherman's Wharf marina, Beacon Hill Park, and the Strait of Juan de Fuca. The Royal British Columbia Museum is a must-see for history buffs.
