Hudson in 1905: Part 79

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

HOTEL PORTLAND--Corner Warren and First streets. O. A. Quackenbush, proprietor. To the tourist or traveler there is no more popular hotel in the city than that of the one quoted above. The house has been located here for many years, and has always been known as one of the city's leading hostelries and where the traveler always received a warm welcome. Mr. Quackenbush recently acquired the house the first of May, and has entirely remodelled it and made it thoroughly up-to-date in every respect, and with rates of $2.00 a day, American plan, the house is the best in the city. The building contains forty fine sleeping apartments, all of which are well furnished to make it comfortable in every way, and no guest that has ever sojourned here for any length of time but always returns again on his next visit to the city. Mr. Quackenbush is an experienced man in their line of business, and at the present time conducts a large restaurant at 394-96 Broadway, Albany, which is one of the best patronized places in the city, and frequented by legislators during the session.
