This is a classic old hotel that dates from 1927. Of course it has had multi million dollar remodelings, so the facilities are up to date, but it still has that feel of a classy old building.
And it is massive. It has zillions of rooms, and bunches of restaurants and shops on the ground level.
Over the years I have attended events here, heard jazz in one of the bars, delivered pizza to the folks in the rooms, etc.
Of course part of the history of this place was the riots in '68 which took place right outside but that is ancient history to most readers, right?
