A brief history of our hotel – Robert Coulson broke ground on the original Western Hotel in February of 1881. His vision was to create the best hotel in Guelph. That same four-story stone structure, which boasted 40 rooms, still stands prominently on Macdonell Street. Western Hotel & Executive Suites was one of many hotels surrounding the Grand Trunk Railway station on nearby Carden Street, but quickly emerged as the place to stay for travelers. Known for its imported whiskies, the Western Hotel was a downtown jewel by the late nineteenth century.

Picture this: nineteen luxury suites ranging from bachelor to two-bedroom units. Full kitchens with granite counter-tops, and bathrooms throughout. A shared boardroom with kitchen, WiFi, and other desirable amenities including skylights in select suites, massive flat screen TV’s throughout, and expansive soundproof windows overlooking the main drag, Macdonell Street.
