The Idlewyld Inn

The Idlewyld Inn - in London ON

The London Free Press reports that the iconic Idlewyld Inn is closing its doors on October 1, 2013. The owner plans to put the "mansion-turned-hotel" on the market.

The hotel was built in 1878 as a private home for the Mayor of the city. Over the years the building functioned in a variety of capacities. Since 1986 it had taken on the role of boutique hotel and was favoured for weddings, fine dining, and the occasional evening of jazz.

As a Londoner and neighbour of this hotel, I hope new owners can be found and the role of hotel can continue.
