Description
- Architect: H.L. Stevens & Company

- Developer: Kawbawgam Hotel Company

- The hotel's foundation was laid in 1917, but didn't begin construction until 1929.

- When opened, the hotel contained ground floor retail, 100 guestrooms on floors 2 through 5, and 9 apartment units on the top floor.

- The ownership of the hotel changed many hands between 1950 and the 1980's. Finally, the hotel closed for good in December of 1982.

- After many failed renovation attempts, the hotel was finally bought by a local husband-and-wife developer couple for $100,000. They then undertook a complete renovation of the hotel at a cost of $5,000,000. The fully restored hotel opened to guests on May 22, 1997.
