Whether you know it by its proper name, The Union Bank Inn, or as it’s commonly known, the Union Bank Hotel, Edmonton is where you’ll find this luxurious hotel. Among the downtown hotels in Edmonton this gem is something special and unique.
In the early 1900’s Edmonton was a bustling and growing town, in part due to the Gold Rush in the Yukon. Around this time the Low Level Bridge was being built after Edmonton had been hit with one of the worst floods on record in 1899. In 1903, an upstart publication called the Edmonton Journal first started publishing, five years later the University of Alberta came into being, and street cars were starting to make their way up Jasper Avenue.
