The children of Mohd Ariff was as successful as him. His eldest son, Wan Chik Ariffin, was one of the most prominent Malay trader in the early 20th century, for whom Ariffin Court and Ariffin Road were named after.
The Mohd Ariff Mansion was given a face lift in the late 19th century, to what we see today. It has passed through several hands, and even served as the club house of the Old Frees Association from 1932 to 1939. Today it is occupied by the New Savoy Hotel, a budget hotel in George Town.
