The Idlewyld Inn on Grand Avenue will cease operations today (Tuesday, October 1) leaving around 30 hotel workers unemployed, according to an article in The Free Press.
The boutique hotel, a three story Victorian-style London mansion, will be put up for sale soon, according to owner Marcel Butchery.
"After two years it’s time to try something else," he told the publication. "It was a business and personal decision."
The Idlewyld Inn was built by London mayor Charles Hyman in 1878 and became a luxury inn in 1986. It was bought by Butchery in 2011.
He renovated the property and rebranded the restaurant as Avenue Dining, headed up by London chef Alfred Estephan.
