Historic Sites of Manitoba: St. Regis Hotel (285 Smith Street, Winnipeg)

Built by Geoffrey H. Walton for hoteliers Charles M. McCarrey and John Lee, the St. Regis Hotel on Smith Street in Winnipeg opened in 1910. Originally a two-storey structure called the Rookery Block, within a year the owners hired local architect Hugh G. Holman to expand it to four floors.

Closed in 2017, the fine millwork from the Oak Dining Room was carefully removed and reassembled in a heritage building at 108 Alexander Avenue, for which it received a Preservation Award from Heritage Winnipeg in 2019.
