The hotel building, Yorkshire House, was built in 1862, pre-dates the opening of Belfast City Hall in 1906, thus making it the same vintage as the Ulster Hall in Bedford Street. It has three storeys and nine-bay frontages which overlook Donegall Square and Linen Hall Street. The building's exterior features wonderfully carved portholes, with the faces of George Washington, Isaac Newton, Michelangelo and William Shakespeare protruding.
The hotel stands on the ground of what was once a row of Georgian houses where the famous physician, poet, educationalist Dr. William Drennan lived in the early 1800s (whose sister had already founded the Maternity Hospital on the city square several years before, and which was the forerunner of the current Royal Maternity Hospital).
The structure was occupied for many years as a Victorian linen warehouse and also served as the General Post Office for a period of time.
