The Old Mixed with the New

The Adventure Hotel in downtown Nelson, British Columbia began over one hundred years ago as high-end accommodation when Nelson was a booming mining town.

Now, over a century later, the hotel is a historically important landmark and a cornerstone of Nelson’s heritage. The original 1914 structure is the center block, asymmetrical four-story brick structure which included the then-modern conveniences of hot and cold running water, radiators and telephone. In fact, a piece of the original boiler is showcased in the hotel’s coffee house, The Empire.
