Hotel Eldorado closes due to COVID-19 pandemic

March 21, 2020 - 8:06 AM

Argus Properties is temporarily closing its historic Kelowna hotel.

“We are temporarily closing the Hotel Eldorado at Eldorado Resort. The rooms and restaurant will be closed until April 30. The ’Spirit of the El’ has been put to the test many times since its opening in 1926; from the Great Depression in 1929, the commencement of World War II in 1939, its tragic fire in 1989, the global shock of September 11, 2001, and the economic crash in 2008,” according to Argus Properties in a press release.

“‘The El’ has navigated nearly a century of global economic and societal challenges and this time is another trial and tribulation for us all.”

Other Argus Properties hotels will remain open at this time in the city. The Manteo Hotel will remain open, with the restaurant available for take-out, room service, and other services to be announced soon. The Four Points by Sheraton Kelowna Airport on Airport Way will remain open on a limited basis to service travellers, first responders and air crew coming through Kelowna.

“The Manteo is well-suited to accommodate the requirements of social distancing and can in fact provide a number of self-contained suites for those who are in need of short-term furnished housing, particularly our first responders, their families, and associates,” according to Argus Properties.

Through this interim period, the Hilton Hampton Inn & Suites Kelowna Airport on Innovation Drive will also provide limited accommodation and short-term furnished accommodation to those in special circumstances, according to Argus Properties.
