  • Notes 
    • American House, King Street, Berlin - The leading hotel in Berlin is the American House, which is located at the corner of King and Queen Streets, and is conducted by Mr. H. Bramm, who has been in the proprietorship for over one year. The business, however, has been established for more than 20 years. The premises occupied are a handsome white brick structure, which was erected in 1859, and is 100x110 feet in dimensions and three stories in height. It contains 40 bedrooms, which are all large, well lighted, comfortably furnished and heated in winter; two tastefully furnished parlors, large dining room, office and sitting room, three sample rooms for commercial men, billiard and pool room, and bar with all the finest imported and domestic wines, liquors and cigars. Mr. Edward Lyons, a thorough gentleman, and who has been connected with the establishment for the past 11 years, has charge of the "spiritual" department, and his cordial smile and warm handshake welcome the commercial "boys" as they put up at the house, which is most popular with the travelling fraternity. The menu is of the best, and cannot be surpassed by any house in this section of the country, including all the delicacies of the season as well as the more substantial, while the cuisine is faultless. Employment is given to 15 competent and courteous assistants, who are careful of the welfare of the guests. The terms of the house are $1.00, $1.50 and $2.00 per day, according to accommodation, and special and reasonable rates are made to regular boarders. Mr. Bramm makes an excellent host, and personally supervises the catering, picking out the choicest that the market affords. Under his management the hotel is a pronounced success, and is steadily increasing in patronage.1a
