Explorers Society Hotel

The Explorers Society Hotel in Revelstoke is an exciting destination for both locals and tourists in the Kootenay region in British Columbia. Originally built in 1911, the historical McKinnon Block has been transformed into a boutique hotel, restaurant and bar.

The renovation of the building was a 14-month long design and build process. The result is a memorable new space that beautifully combine the old and the new. The boutique hotel features nine rooms; guests are treated to modern amenities, comfortable spaces and delicious breakfast. The main floor of the building is a now a restaurant: Quartermasters Eatery. Downstairs in the building’s boiler room, the space has been transformed into a quaint whiskey bar aptly named The Boiler Room.

Innotech supplied the new windows for the building. The windows feature a simulated divided lite (SDL) to replicate the building’s original double hung windows. With a black exterior and white interior finish, the new windows provide the necessary ventilation and comfort for guests, while providing energy savings for the owners.
