This old hotel has been in the news since February when the oldest part of the hotel caught on fire. There is a campaign on Facebook to save and restore what is left of landmark hotel that has been empty since 2006. These photos were taken in July of 2011 when you could still peek in the window of the shops on the ground floor and security guards were stationed in the lobby. They allowed me to step into the lobby and take a few pictures. The details of this old hotel are amazing.
