Six-story Beaux Arts-style building with Romanesque features.
The ground floor featured large picture windows, with art-glass transoms above the lobby windows. The second floor exterior is of terra cotta scored to mimic blocks of stone, while the upper stories are sheathed in cream-colored pressed brick.
The lobby still retains many original elements, such as ceiling decorations, columns, and arched doorways. The stained glass windows in the lobby feature old-fashioned scenes of banqueting, fine ladies, and music.
Plenty of spaces to shoot that include the lobby, hotel rooms, rooftop and diner.
