The building is nearly a century old and has been a hotel since it opened in 1918; unfortunately, most of that historic charm has been lost amid the many updates over time. The decor is pretty much just a bland, beige, middle-of-the-road hotel style—but it’s clean and functional, the price is right, and the location is fantastic. Plus every once in a while you can spot the bones of the building’s history, whether it be an original fireplace or the old safe. The guest rooms have all the essential amenities (TV, Wi-Fi, comfortable beds, room for all your gear), plus there’s the excellent Butcher & Bullock gastro pub downstairs. Note that some of rooms have showers only, and those facing east stare directly at a concrete wall.
