Designed in the Renaissance Revival style, the six-story brick building was constructed in Hastings in 1914 with an addition made in 1916. Local architect C. W. Way employed elegant touches in the interior of the city's grand hotel, including the famous grill room, which has a series of murals painted by Italian artist Giuseppe Aprea depicting seventeenth-century European tavern scenes. The Clarke Hotel operated until March 1987.
