Post COVID-19: The New Guest Experience

The original Christ Church opened in 1905. In its time, it operated the Sick Children’s Aid Society, accommodated sailors and soldiers during World War I, served as the strike headquarters for the Ladies’ Apparel Shipping Clerks Union and hosted the Circle Theatre Company. In 1975, the Postgraduate Center for Mental Health took over the property. The new hotel keeps the historic church’s windowed chapel wall.
