Prince of Wales Hotel

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 14 November 2017 in Business & Industry and Portfolio.

Prince of Wales Hotel is a historic Victorian hotel in Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario. It is located at King Street and Picton Street along the historic main street of Niagara-on-the-Lake, in its historic district.

Built in 1864, the three storey 110-room hotel went by several names (Long's Hotel, Arcade Hotel, The Niagara House) and was renamed with the current name in 1901 after royal guests The Duke and Duchess of Cornwall and York (afterwards known as The Prince and Princess of Wales until 1910) stayed. Queen Elizabeth II stayed at the hotel during her visit to the area in 1973.

You framed this gem perfectly. I'm looking forward to more of your visual take on this heavily touristed but pretty Ontario town. (when I was there last, alas no camera on my person)

Nice photo. I like the sharpness and the colours. but I wish you had waited until the car had driven out of the frame. Perhaps it was parked there.

14 Nov 2017 9:12pm

@Blikvanger: This is located on a very busy street and I waited for a moment that provided the least amount of obstruction by cars.

Steve Rice from Olympia, United States

A very well preserved old place. I like seeing all the well tended plants everywhere.

fine hotel; did you wait for the silver car, or did you wait and wait until traffic was (almost) gone?

@Harry: Bingo!!

Fancy... With 150 years of history and yet the hotel has been able to reinvent itself to the new times. Essentially it has gone through 2 centuries of fashions, safety standards and etiquette.
