Linden Hotel

1883, William Quayle. 1995, restoration. 201 Linden St. (north corner of Walnut St.)
  • Linden Hotel (Richard W. Longstreth)

William Quayle designed this eclectic Victorian edifice as the Loomis and Andrews Block, housing a Masonic lodge on the third floor and the Poudre Valley National Bank on the first. He used local sandstone trim and ornamental stone pilasters beneath an elaborate pressed metal cornice. Note the distinctive clipped corner entry with a two-story oriel crowned by a prominent corner tower with a bell-shaped hood. This became the Linden Hotel in 1904 when the matching wings were added.
