The Rich History of The Regent Hotel

If walls could speak, ours would have stories long and layered enough to rival an odyssey. With origins dating back to the 1920’s, the Regent Hotel is one of the oldest, family-owned hotels in Canada, and the oldest family owned business in Revelstoke.

The Windsor Hotel & The Selkirk Hotel

The Regent Hotel was once two neighbouring and fiercely competing hotels, known as the Windsor Hotel and the Selkirk Hotel. The Windsor Hotel was originally bought in 1919 by Charles Turnross, the son of a Swedish immigrant who came to work in Canada for the Canadian Pacific Railway. Eventually, the Windsor hotel was renamed to The Regent Hotel and bought under new family ownership in 1945. It wasn’t until the 1980’s that the two neighbouring hotels were thoroughly renovated, modernized, and brought together under the name.

A Railway Hotel

The roots of Regent Hotel are also deeply intertwined with Revelstoke’s history. Once known as the “Second Crossing,” the town was an integral station for the CPR, which enabled economic growth through the logging and mining industries. As Revelstoke grew into a burgeoning railway community, The Turnross family were influential in accommodating travelers, railway workers and newcomers to the town.
