The St. Regis Hotel Boardroom is now the “Cyclone Taylor Boardroom”
JUne 2, 2014
As part of its 100th Anniversary celebrations, the St. Regis Hotel reconnected with photos and stories from its past and one name which came up several times was that of Vancouver hockey legend Cyclone Taylor.
Cyclone Taylor captained the Vancouver Millionaires to the city’s only ever Stanley Cup championship and was an city icon. During the 1940s the owner of the Hotel financed the local pro team which was renamed the “Vancouver St. Regis” and Cyclone Taylor was talked out of retirement to be part of the team.
To honour this legend, the St. Regis Hotel recently renamed its boardroom the “Cyclone Taylor Boardroom” to ensure that the name would have a permanent place in the Hotel. “We hope that this gesture will allow more of our guests learn more about Cyclone Taylor and his importance in the history of Vancouver” said St. Regis Hotel General Manager Jeremy Roncoroni.
At the same time as the boardroom was renamed the St. Regis Hotel also changed its policies to allow for hourly rental of the room with no prebooking needed. For more information on this business-friendly approach to meeting space, visit http://www.stregishotel.com/meeting-en.html.
The St. Regis Hotel would like to extend our thanks to the family of Cyclone Taylor for generously allowing the use of his name. To learn more about the legendary Cyclone Taylor, click HERE.
