Well that's a good suggestion, Carol!  And may very well be true.
I suppose that it could be that in the the 1901 Census it was recorded as plying as a hotel, but by the 1911 it no longer was, and so the "no longer after 1901" became used.  Or just as likely, as you say, an error of a two digit inversion.

Would need to visit the local studies/record centre to clear this one up, but not sure which one would cover Aldersgate Street

The British newspapers on FindMyPast have numerous mentions of the Champion between 1867 and February 1910, but nothing after that.  The Welsh newspaper story found by willyam suggests that the closure was unexpected, otherwise they wouldn't have taken bookings for April 1910.

It was certainly a lively establishment - Bohemian concerts and all sorts 8)

That settles that then, Carol.  Well done with the extra research!
Now to try and track down the fate of Jacques Fermo's bride on that June day in 1902...

Keith,

Hopefully the following will provide the clarity that is needed in respect of the demise of the Champion Hotel.

From the Yorkshire Post and Leeds Intelligencer issue of 29th March 1910:

"A FALL IN VALUE FROM 40,000 TO 500 - In a review of the property market the "Daily Telegraph" observes that the westward move which brought the Albion Tavern in Aldersgate Street to the closing stage of an honourable existence doubtless affects the Champion Hotel, in the same thoroughfare, withdrawn [from auction] by Messrs. Orgill, Marks and Barley at the upset price of 500. The property is held at a ground rent of 1,142 per annum, but, nevertheless, there was a time, not so very long ago, when the Champion Hotel sold for upwards of 40,000."

Keith,

Are you able to tell us the address that was recorded for Agnes on the wedding certificate?

As she does not seem to appear in the (England & Wales) 1901 census, might that address also be a non-permanent one? Possibly another hotel - perhaps the Brunswick?

My thinking is that perhaps, following her father's death in 1898, as a woman then of independent means she might have travelled abroad - where she may have met Jacques and they then returned to London to marry.

Right, Willyam,
Address given for her on the marriage certificate was 14, Dukes Avenue, Muswell Hill.
Not sure if she was there in the 1901 Census, and she seems devilishly difficult to track down in the 1871, 1881 and 1891 Censuses too...

Keith,

Thanks for this.

In the 1891 census there is recorded in the household of Augusta C Rushworth in Bridlington, a Visitor by the name of Agnes F Kershaw (aged 22). Her occupation is given as Student of Holloway College and her place of birth as London, City.

Additionally, as you may already be aware, in the 1871 census her sister Alice is in the same Rushworth household (this time in Leeds) - where she is described as a Niece.

Morning, Willyam,
Yes, I think that the Rushworth family connection was through the WINTER Norwich family.  Alice and Florence's mother was an Emma Cecily WINTER, and I'm pretty sure that one of her sisters, Augusta, married a male RUSHWORTH, hence the niece connection.  Maybe the Yorkshire holiday with aunt and uncle and cousins was a favourite break of the sisters. Bridlington's quite a nice seaside place, though I have been told Filey up the coast is a preferred holiday destination today.  But I mustn't start an almighty row about that on here!

...and there is Agnes F. aged 2 in Bexleyheath, Kent in the 1871 Census with her nurse Maria de Boo.
Birthplace clearly given as Charterhouse Square London.  But she never seems to be there on Census night.!  Still can't find her in 1881, and as you say, she could well have been abroad in the 1901.
Interestingly, at one time or another for about 70 years up to the outbreak of WW1 in 1914, the Kershaw family occupied numbers 12-14 Charterhouse Square.  Today the ground floor of numbers 13 and 14 are occupied by a cafe that serves visitors to The Charterhouse, one of London's greatest medieval/Tudor attractions.  I've sat in there with a pot of tea and a slice of cake several times, imagining Kershaw family life over 100 years ago...
