The average price for a room for two at The
Admiral Inn at York Boulevard and Dundurn Street? Eighty-four dollars
and ninety-five cents a night.
A room at The Admiral Inn with a view of
the Queen passing by in her motorcade tomorrow? Priceless. -- Every single one is already booked.
When Queen Elizabeth II makes her much-anticipated stop in Hamilton,
she will travel along York Boulevard and pass the hotel
-- providing some guests the ultimate room with a view.
General manager John Lulich couldn't be happier.
He won't be plastering any "Welcome Queen" signs on the
hotel's facade, but Lulich said, "I'm absolutely excited" that one
of the world's most recognized people is here in Hamilton.
Of course, it's good for business. But he says room
rates haven't been jacked up.
The 60 hotel rooms will house some of the 3,000
Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders of Canada expected to converge on
the city. The regiment is being presented with new colours
by the Queen at a ceremony taking place down the
street at Copps Coliseum.
When the Queen makes her way onto city roads from
the 403, she won't encounter any construction detours.
