Prince Arthur Hotel

17 Cumberland Street North
Constructed: 1911
Architect: Whitney Warren & C. Tanguay

This six-storey building uses stone for the construction of the first two floors, and brick for the remainder. Stone is also used for a row of dentils under the cornice, as decorative trim around windows, and between the fifth and sixth floors as a stringcourse. The original estimate for the construction of this building was $250,000, far short of its actual cost of $850,000. The architects responsible for this building were famous for designing New York's Grand Central Station. The hotel was built by the Canadian Northern Railway, now the Canadian National Railway, and served as Port Arthur's premier hotel.
