MEDICINE HAT, AB— 115 years after opening, Medicine Hat's Royal Hotel has closed down, effective immediately.

The closure was announced in a Facebook post from the hotel on Wednesday night.

Royal Hotel was serving as a live music venue and a bar. The hotel upstairs had eighteen rooms but was not in use.

The property was on sale last July for just under $1.5 million dollars.

The bar at the Royal Hotel is still available for lease.
