At 7:30pm, in the hotel's stately lobby, renowned historian (and former Prince of Wales bartender) Ray Djuff made a toast to the hotel's legacy and to its future. He made a point of recognizing not only the outstanding architecture and landscape that characterize the hotel, but to celebrate the generations of people who have both taken care of, and passed through, this unforgettable place.
"To this hotel on its 90th birthday, to those who took this remarkable hotel from idea to reality and to those who have created traditions and kept them thriving for all these decades – we salute you!," Djuff said.
For the team at Glacier Park Collection who have the keen privilege to manage and maintain the historic site, 90 years is only the beginning.
"The Prince has left a lasting impression on everyone who has walked through its doors over the past 90 years." says Glacier Park Collection Marketing Manager Rebecca Baker. "It was truly special to see so many staff, guests and members of the community gather to share their stories and raise a glass to the hotel's 90th anniversary."
