Formerly the Heritage Inn, the Hume Hotel has been a cherished Nelson landmark and one of the finest hotels in British Columbia since 1898. With the time-honoured tradition of hospitality excellence that began with original owners J. Fred and Lydia Hume, the Hume Hotel continues to provide guests with unparalleled service.

Offering 43 nostalgic guest rooms, a restaurant, lounge, pub, nightclub, meeting and banquet facilities, and liquor boutique, the Hume Hotel caters to all needs and tastes. The hotel also subtly combines modern technology within the heritage ambiance, and was the first hotel in the Kootenays to earn BC Hydro's Green Hotel Plus Award, an award given for outstanding commitment to energy efficient practices.

"It's nice to actually stay in a hotel that is older than you are." -Bob Hope, Hume Hotel, 1991

The Hume Hotel has gone through several major renovations over its lifetime. In the early 80's, the hotel underwent a major interior renovation which restored the hotel and carefully revealed hidden treasures that are once again being enjoyed by admiring patrons. While the hotel was renamed as the Heritage Inn in 1980, major changes to the hotel’s exterior façade were completed in 2005 which included an outdoor patio for the General Store Restaurant as well as the hotel's rooftop 'crown'. In addition, the hotel saw the completion of the chic, leather-clad Benwell Lounge downstairs in the basement.

After twenty-five years under the current ownership, the hotel went back to its roots to be renamed as the original proprietor once titled it, the Hume Hotel, paying homage to a local legend and a storied history on the corner of Vernon and Ward Street. Most recently in 2007, the hotel has welcomed Spiritbar as its newest facility. This swanky entertainment showroom will be home to live bands, both local and world renown DJs and many other special events. Simply put, the historic Hume Hotel offers a truly unique hospitality experience. Come enjoy an authentic taste of Nelson's heritage.
