THE CITY HOTEL
MRS JULIA HAUGHTON, PROP
LOCATED ON THE NORTH-EAST CORNER OF MAIN AND ARMSTRONG STREETS

  This popular hotel, convenient to the railroad depots, is one of the neatest and best appointed hostelries in Keyser. It has eight nicely furnished sleeping rooms, a dining room with a seating capacity of twenty-four, a handsome parlor, well-appointed bar and large smoking room, and is in all respects a model of neatness and comfort. The hotel was established in 1888 by Mrs Julia Haughton, who is well and favorably known in Piedmont and Rowelsburg, her former residences, as well as in Keyser. This was Mrs Haughton's first experience as a hostess, and her success may be attributed to the home-like surroundings and delicious home-cooking which has characterized her administration of the City Hotel.
  The management is in the hands of Mr E A Everett, a West Virginian by birth, and for twelve years a resident of Keyser. He possesses a wide acquaintance throughout this locality, and has a host of friends. The bar, under his charge, is stocked with some of the finest liquors, made including "Old National" rye, a pronounced favorite. Both Cumberland and Baltimore beers are dispensed. There are no frills put on at the City Hotel. The home-cooking insures appetizing meals, the beds are excellent, and a warm welcome is accorded both friends and strangers. It is a quiet restful stopping place, and is justly entitled to its popularity. Rates are but $1.00 a day, with special rates by the week.
