The Hotel Sterling

Posted by WVIA Admin on

For more than a century the Hotel Sterling stood proudly along the banks of the Susquehanna River in Wilkes-Barre. Elegance, excellent service, and high cuisine were the hallmarks of the hotel, and it became a chic destination for prominent citizens in the region and the nation. Fred George, former Head Chef at the hotel, gives a chilling description of the former glamour of the Hotel Sterling prior to its demolition in the summer of 2013.
