Hudson in 1905: Part 62

The following is an excerpt from the booklet Illustrated Hudson, N.Y., published in 1905.

GERMANIA HOTEL--33-35 S. Front street. Christian Miller & Son, Frank, proprietors. The proprietors of this up-to-date establishment are too well known in Hudson to require any lengthy review in a work of this character. They have been in business for the past thirty-one years, and the hotel subject to their management is considered one of the finest in the city. It contains nineteen excellent rooms, all of which are modernly furnished and appointed; thus providing guests with every comfort and convenience of home. A stay at the Germania Hotel is made the more pleasurable because of the geniality of the managers and the service received at their hands. They personally look after the wants of the boarders, and nothing is ever left undone that will make for their highest enjoyment. The cuisine is unparalleled anywhere in the city; the meals that are set forth being good and bountiful. In connection with the general business, a bar is operated and is always well stocked with the best ales, liquors, wines, beer, and cigars. A specialty is made of Evans' Ale on draught.

Gossips Note: The picture of the Germania Hotel is one of the rare pictures that show the buildings that lined the west side of Front Street, all of which were demolished during Urban Renewal to build Hudson Terrace apartments.
