"Constructed in the Jacobethan style, this hotel is nine stories in elevation, It is tall and narrow in appearance as a result of its 25 foot frontage, accentuated by the lower surrounding buildings to the north and south. The main facade faces east and consists of four bays of paired double hung sash windows set in terra cotta surrounds. A projecting cornice forms a string course between the 7th and 8th floors. The facade terminates in a decorative terra cotta double gable. The summit of the roof is crenallated and accented with terra cotta."
