When Hotel Morgan opened its doors to the public on October 16, 1925, it was a place of splendor, featuring red satin upholstery, crystal chandeliers, and an opulent ballroom where many of the town’s social functions took place.

With the addition of the adjoining Warner Theater in 1931, Hotel Morgan was THE place to stay. The Hotel hosted many notable names over the following years, including Eleanor Roosevelt in 1934 and President Harry Truman in 1954.

In later years, the hotel became more of a motel. The rooms were too small and outdated, business was down, and the hotel catered to the University dorm overflow and post-football game party-goers.

The property underwent a renovation in 1999, combining modern amenities and technology with its original elegance and charm. The hotel reopened in 2000 with a new color scheme—Mountaineer blue and gold—playing tribute to WVU.
