Built in 1905 by Joesph Gianini a contractor who built piers for railroads with 28 rooms kitchen and 2nd floor dining room which featured French cuisine and a 1st floor candy shop and ice cream parlor it sits in decay as some one still lives in it to this day.

The Hotel was also the way point for when many soldiers when they left for war on the railroad many never to return and there last memory of the Kiski Valley. So you would have to think spirits are still lingering around .
The hotel was viable till just after WWII when the automobile and decline of trains saw it become apartments and first floor candy shop a bar named the Tin Hut and Giannis at one time .
The elderly woman who bought it wanted to fix it up but it was not to be .
Unfortunately thou just a short distance up the street is where Apollo Policeman Leonard Miller lost his life when he pulled over the Kill for Thrill Killers John Lesko and Michael Travaglia . So this place has been a place of great joy and sadness and lingers as one of the best places to get a photo as many come with just the purpose of photographing it.
Here are some videos made by those who have explored hotel
UPDATE July 23 2019
Unfortunately hotel was lost due to suspicious fire .
after it was condemned and was going to have to be torn down in days before fire front porch posts had badly bent meaning hotel was in state of falling into street .
