Hudson in 1905: Part 69

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

HOTEL LINCOLN--J. P. Holmes, proprietor. Rates, $2.00 per day and up. The location of this famous hostelry is well known to the traveling men who make Hudson each season, and for the fact of it being centrally located on the main street of the city, in the heart of its business section, it has always come in as first choice with them. The house has been established here for fifteen years, and has accommodations for seventy-five guests. The rooms are all furnished in the most modern style, many of which are en suite, with baths in connection. All modern conveniences are here available for the comfort of guests, and the bill-of-fare set before them leaves absolutely nothing to be desired. In connection with the hotel a bar is conducted, and at this is dispensed all the popular drinks known to the business. Mr. Holmes is a hotel man of long years of experience, and takes particular interest in seeing that his guests are always well cared for in their sojourns at his house. He has been proprietor of the HOTEL LINCOLN for fourteen years, and through his hospitality and catering to the public to their best advantage has built up a very fine patronage.

Gossips Note: The Hotel Lincoln survived into the 1950s, when it was destroyed by fire. For a brief time, in the 1930s (1936-1937), when Max Weintraub was the hotel's proprietor, the hotel was called The Ritz.
