The main entrance of the former Royal Connaught Hotel in Downtown Hamilton. This hotel built in 1916 was the pride of Hamilton's downtown, a swanky hotel that the cream of the social elite stayed and gathered. In fact in 1938 the hotel hosted the Presbyterian Young People's Society Fall Convention Banquet. When it shut down in 2004 it was a 2 Star Howard Johnson. Currently it's in a state of limbo, most of the insides gutted, and even the most recent plan has fallen through.
