The Hotel Bentley is no longer open for business but in the past it was the epitome of Grandeur. It is an elegant piece of architecture. This place was the setting for all of our High School BALLS in the 50's and 60's and probably long before that. I loved going into this hotel. It always made me feel like royalty. The lobby was absolutely gorgeous and it made you feel magical.
Although it is no longer open for business, the Hotel Bentley is on the market for sale. There has been stories about it being renovated into "low income" housing which would definitely destroy the entire "ambiance" of this eloquent establishment. Someone with vision and love of architecture should purchase this place and make it come to life again.
