The Samuels Hotel was one of the busiest hotels in the Silver Valley, with five floors and modern commodities (for 1908, when it was built). After it had been built, it quickly became the largest and finest hotel in all of Idaho, with more than 150 rooms, 25 luxury suites included. Guests could get a shave and a haircut at the barber on the ground floor, find something to drink at the Metals Bar (also downstairs), and take the elevator to the upper floors if they didn’t want to walk up the stairs.
