Sitting on the corner of Nelson and Granville for well over a hundred years, the Hotel Belmont has undergone many name changes in it's century of existence. It was named after its original owner, Colonel Oscar G. Barron, an American hotelier. In 1925 it became the Belmont, in the 1970s it was the Nelson Place, then the Dakota, a Comfort Inn in the early 2000s, and back to the Belmont in 2017. One of its claims to fame was Babalu’s Tapas Lounge, where a young Michael Buble honed his craft.
