Full Description

The hotel was built in 1912 when Piccadilly was created by opening up a gap in a row of medieval buildings linking Coppergate and Pavement. At that time the old White Swan was demolished and its name and function transferred to the new hotel built on the newly formed corner of Coppergate and Piccadilly. It directly marks an important improvement in the creation of the new street and is included in the list for that reason. It also fits well with the adjacent medieval buildings in Coppergate and into the Piccadilly street scene, occupying suitably the space for which it was designed. Nominated for inclusion on York's Local List of heritage assets.
