Project365: Day 12 - Hotel Kirkwood

Day 12 - Hotel Kirkwood, originally uploaded by Tim Bungert.

The Hotel Kirkwood is another of my favorite local buildings. There has been a hotel at this location since 1850, though the Hotel Kirkwood was not built until 1929. The exterior and interior detailing is very typical of late 1920s/early 1930s Art Deco architecture. The 12-story building was used as a hotel until just a few years ago. The building has now been converted to residential units, but the Lobby (pictured) was beautifully restored as part of that conversion.
