Old Hotel McCartney

-A A +A
1929, Joseph Finger. W. Front St. at Main St.

Across the street from Union Station (LT32), the hotel is a ten-story slab designed by Houston architect and hotel specialist Joseph Finger. Its spare exterior elevations can be contrasted with the outstanding Art Deco interior spaces in the building’s lobby and on the mezzanine level. The Hotel McCartney, now deserted and crumbling, and Union Station constitute an eloquent reminder of the golden age of rail travel in northeast Texas.
