Where in the world is The Lamont Hotel? Hint: Vancouver, BC

I did a double take when I spied this sign on The Fairmont Hotel Vancouver. The Lamont Hotel? My first thought was that maybe a TV or movie was filming there, renamed The Lamont Hotel.

When I Googled it, turns out that there was a situation comedy on TV for six months in 2003-2004 called Whoopi. Not surprisingly, it starred Whoopi Goldberg, the owner of a small hotel called The Lamont in New York City.

I should have inquired about the mysterious sign at the front desk of The Fairmont Hotel Vancouver. If anybody has an explanation, do tell!
