We take pleasure in referring the reader to the advertisement of our old friend Boutwell, of the Hudson House. On his part, there is never a want of that indefatigability which is so highly prized by the weary traveler, or the long sojourner in a public house. Mr. Boutwell makes his hotel a home, in fact, to all who visit him; and even the most fastidious cannot fail to be pleased with the elegance and well-ordered state of his house. To travelers--transient or permanent sojourners in the city, we recommend, with confidence, the Hudson House.

Hotel Yesterday, Hotel Tomorrow, But . . .
We've been hearing a lot about hotels in Hudson these days. Marina Abramovic needs them to realize her vision for Hudson. The proprietors of The Croff House have gotten the go-ahead to turn 542 Warren Street into a sixteen-room hotel. Bill Hughes let it slip recently that the Department of Social Services is putting up homeless people in the city's only existing hotel, the St. Charles on Park Place, across from the Public Square.
Meanwhile, a reader sent me this little item from the Columbia Republican for October 31, 1843, about the Hudson House, which my source informs me was the name in 1843 of the hotel that would eventually become known as the General Worth Hotel.
