This hotel was built during the two years of operation of Guenther and Van Aken, Architects, 1898-1899. It was erected on a site at 738 Columbia Street, New Westminster, BC. It was probably erected to accommodate an influx of visitors to BC during the Klondike Gold Rush. The same firm also designed the Hotel Fraser in New Westminster at the same time.
