Golden Gate Hotel

view location

Like its neighbour the Yale Hotel down the street, this old timer has stood on the corner of Davie and Granville since 1889, when it was known as the Golden Gate Hotel. It has gone through several ownership changes over the years,  and for a while was known as the Tourist Hotel. In 1920 the hotel was converted to apartments, and remains that way today, with the Two Parrots Bar and Grill operating on the main floor. (1910-ish photograph from Vancouver City Archives).
