I'll take this opportunity to post this photo I took in 1980 of the hotel under construction.

Anyone know the asking price? Curious what such a prime chunk of real estate would be worth.

In 2012 a $5.2-million offer was made.

I didn't know the hotel was that new, Rob!

I recall a construction delay and the framing laying exposed for a long time. It might surprise some to see the entire building is wood frame, no steel studs or concrete. I wonder what the current condition of the building is.

Man this place needs to be completely modernized. And I doubt the current building will suffice.

Isn't this the property we once saw plans of a couple of 20 story towers on?

The towers where Rita Roys attempt to keep her ship from sinking. This woman once walked into a meeting with here management team stating here time is worth a $125 and hour, so to sit still, listen up and keep any comments to yourself.

Regardless IMO the entire property is pretty drab, dull and architecturally uninspiring. I would love to see some really knock-out proposal come along to spruce up that part of the harbour. Alas, this being Victoria, suspect I will be long gone and buried in the event that happy day comes along, the inner harbour especially being - you know - Victoria's hallowed, "sacred" ground :whyme:

Dominion Grand Hotel Group bought the hotel for $5.65 million in February 2012.

At the time, the company outbid in court Saskatchewan-based d3h Hotels, which had earlier agreed to pay $5.2 million for the property.

Both companies said the buildings required about $3 million in upgrades to bring them back to respectability.

I wasn't thinking about cosmetic changes but structural ones. Hotel guest have high expectations for quiet and I wonder how that wood-frame structure has held up for sound transmission between floors, including footsteps.

From the article

Commercial real estate experts have suggested the property’s worth is likely close to $6 million because the hotelier does not own the land and must pay annual rent of more than $350,000 — an amount that increases each year as it is tied to the consumer price index — and because there are fewer than 41 years left on the land lease.

The land is owned by the Plasterer family of Victoria, held by their company, International Travel Inns Ltd.
