Hotel St. Michael began as the Burke Hotel, built in 1891. The original building burned along with the saloons on Whiskey Row in the 1900 Great Fire that happened in July. In 1901, the property was purchased by John Duke who had a new hotel constructed of brick, which he named the Hotel St. Michael.
Owned by Prescott businessman Henry Brinkmeyer in the late 1880s, Brinkmeyer's Hotel was owned and operated by Henry and his wife Ina Brinkmeyer, who sewed all the sheets for the hotel and helped Henry with the business books.
