PHOTO: Walls come down in Port Angeles hotel demolition

A demolition excavator prepares to tear into the last remaining walls of the former Downtown Hotel at Front and Laurel streets in Port Angeles on Tuesday.

The building, which also housed the Cornerhouse Restaurant, along with other nearby buildings are being removed to make way for a luxury hotel being built by the Lower Elwha Klallam Tribe.

By late morning Tuesday, the walls were down to street level and all that remained of the former hotel were the building’s basement and a pile of rubble.
