2-8 Victoria Street. Built in the French Renaissance style in 1859 by W. and A. Moseley, it was the first hotel in London to have lifts. It was much frequented by Members of Parliament and noted for its good English Fare. It had 300 bedrooms but only 14 bathrooms. One half of the building was let to the India Board. It is now Abbey House.
