On the night of November 10, 1913, a fire started in the attic and severely damaged the building. It is rumored that several guests died that night while still asleep in their beds. Nine days later, it was announced that a new hotel would be built on the same property.
In 2020, the hotel closed due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The hotel has now reopened, with new ownership.
