The Explorers Society Hotel, is an absolutely INCREDIBLE place to stay while visiting Revelstoke. A real “gem” nestled in the mountains. We just returned from a 4 night stay, and we will never stay anywhere else in Revelstoke!! We received such a warm and genuine welcome, it felt as though we were coming home.“Incredible Hotel”, a TripAdvisor Hotel Guest, Aug 2017
Highlights include the contrast between softly white-washed wood and concrete walls, the elegant tin roof panels, the boldly tiled floor, and the industrial chandelier. These features are all individually unique but together compliment each other in an exquisitely modern way, while still paying tribute to the buildings rich history.The Explorers Society Hotel brings boutique trend to Revelstoke – Eliisa Tennant, Revelstoke Mountaineer, April 2017
Beautifully restored space in a great old building, right downtown. A work of love. Every detail is custom built and reflects taste and respect for the building and the town’s history, outdoor activities, and welcoming atmosphere.“Great New Hotel and Restaurant in Historic Revelstoke Building” – TripAdvisor, March 2017
The boiler room bar is one of the best and least known new gems in Revelstoke. It’s classy and intimate and has a great selection of scotches and cocktails. Definitely a great date night idea. The history of this building is incredible, and the boiler room bar downstairs is right in the thick of it.“Classiest Joint in Revelstoke” — A TripAdvisor Boiler Room Patron, April 2017
