The Oriental Hotel
The hotel then had about 80 bedrooms, each with a fireplace and closets. On the ground floor were ladies’ and gentlemen’s dining saloons able to seat over 200 diners.
McKeon operated the hotel until 1903. Under different owners the hotel was later known as the St. Francis. Although the tower has been removed, the building remains one of the most significant structures in Old Town.
