Locally known as the ‘Pink Palace,’ the hotel is undergoing renovations which hotel manager Margarett Lange told Peace Arch News last month would “hopefully” be finished within two years.

The new hotel will be re-open as a Doubletree by Hilton Hotel, and it will not be painted pink.

“It’s only the skeleton, the footprint that is staying. It needs it, the hotel is 26 years old,” Lang said at the time.
