    Built in 1962 in the 'Googie' or 'Popluxe' style, this popular landmark declined over the years. The attached restaurant closed in 2004.
    Unable to compete with the luxury hotel at nearby Casino Rama and other more 'up-to-date' hotels, it closed 2/01/2008.
     Media Coverage
    Just one or two letters to the local 'Packet & Times' newspaper complaining that staff should have been given more notice.
     Future Plans
    There were plans to have this redeveloped to serve as a senior's residence but that fell through.
    Unfortunately I'm thinking its gonna get the wrecking ball come summer.
