St. Charles Hotel

Enlarge text:  smaller  |  larger

Winnipeg had become a very lucrative business travel market during its reign as the economic center of the west. Charles M. McCarrey and George Skinner hired Carter-Halls-Aldinger Company, Winnipeg’s largest contractor, to design and build a three-storey hotel. Built on the northwest corner of Albert Street and Notre Dame Avenue during a recession in 1913, the structure cost $122,000.

McCarrey, who was the owner of the St. Regis Hotel, leased the St. Charles until 1914. Skinner, the former proprietor of the Grange Hotel on Lombard, assumed the role of owner-manager at that point.
