Maritime Plaza Hotel closes for good
A familiar structure at the corner of Guy St. and Rene-Levesque Blvd. is no longer operating as a hotel.
The Maritime Plaza Hotel, well known for its full-windowed circular shape, shut its doors for good on Monday, with management blaming an employee strike that began in August.
The union claims the workers were locked out.
Management says they plan on eventually opening a new, 200-unit condo development on the site, which would involve demolishing part of the existing structure.
