Historic Sites of Manitoba: Royal Albert Arms Hotel (48 Albert Street, Winnipeg)

Built in the summer of 1913, the opening of the Royal Albert Arms Hotel was overshadowed by the simultaneous opening of the Fort Garry Hotel. With 53 private rooms, the hotel catered to the salesmen, travellers and visitors on business in the adjacent warehouse district. Designed by architect Edgar D. McGuire, the four-storey building was constructed by W. M. Scott, a consulting engineer who later became Chairman of the Winnipeg Water District’s Board of Commissioners. It is a municipally-designated historic site.
