Hidden Treasures Discovered at the Hotel Belleclaire!

If these walls could talk they would reveal tales of times forgotten, sacred secrets, and legends of many who passed through these doors.  A time of speak-easies and flappers—laughter, love, and legacy abound…

Since we began the lobby enhancement project, we have we uncovered high ceilings (over 17 feet) framed in intricate, ornate crown molding, mosaic-tiled floors, and original-wood doors dating back nearly 110 years; travelers far and wide were welcomed to bask in the open spaces of this historic hotel.

To our surprise, we have discovered a skylight in our lobby.  These revelations have only increased our desire to preserve the historic charm of the Hotel Belleclaire.  Now, midway into the redesign; we cannot help but wonder—what other treasures are hidden behind these walls?
