Samuels decor has a contemporary flare in public spaces, guest rooms and dining area. The hotel was named in honour of two different men named Samuel, both important figures in Goderich's history: Samuel Bissett, a dairy farmer who owned significant land around Goderich in the early 1900's became famed for his fine dairy herd and progressive ways. He was the first farmer in Ontario to bottle and distribute milk in glass bottles. Samuel Platt discovered one of the most expansive salt deposits in the world near this hotel from which Sifto Salt now mines over 3.5 million tonnes of salt per year.
