The History of the Hotel

Until the 1970’s this was a hotel that used staff operated cages to get you from one floor to the next. In the 70’s the hotel did upgrade to automatic elevators.

What a lot of people really love about this hotel is the old fashioned charm it has. The hotel has done an excellent job of reminding you just how old it is without crippling your stay or enjoyment of the hotel itself.

There have been many of notable guests staying at this hotel over the years. This is another reason why people come from all over just to stay at the same place King Edward VIII and Oprah Winfrey stayed at when they were in Calgary.

This is a hotel who cares about what the people want. In the 60’s they had plans of removing the fireplace which was located in the Rimrock Restaurant. Guests signed a petition begging the hotel not to remove it, and they complied.

If you want to stay at an old fashioned hotel that cares about your needs and interests, this is the place to stay.
