The St. Helens Hotel is the tallest building in Chehalis, built over four years from 1917 to 1921. It is cited as having played a pivotal role in making the surrounding area Chehalis’ commercial center.
The hotel also enjoyed success as a result of the Pacific Highway utilizing nearby streets, and helped bring big numbers of tourists and business travelers straight through the heart of Chehalis before Interstate 5 brought the majority of the traffic away from the downtown core and to the west.
Today the St. Helens Hotel is largely used as commercial space and apartments.
