The Grand Hotel (1881-1966) Highmount, NY

Opened in the 1881 by the Ulster and Delaware Railroad, the 418 room hotel sat on the side of Monka Hill, with a commanding view down the Big Indian Valley towards Slide Mountain. The hotel was a copy of the famous Oriental Hotel on Coney Island in New York City.

Because of its affiliation with the railroad, it remained in operation until 1966, long after the other great hotels of its era had closed.
