According to the hotel, they will still be open for business. The current zoning is for multi-use commercial, not residential. The entertainment company that was operating out of the hotel is gone, which means the bars and restaurants will likely be closed. But, there still may be some opportunities to see them before the place is leveled to pave way for more condos (just what Vancouver needs). I doubt they'll be operational, even if the hotel stays open in the meantime. Frankly, the city should be stepping up to the plate to make it a heritage building. I don't know what the exact criteria are, but I think most would agree it's a historical landmark.
