  • Athens Hotel

The Athens Hotel is an impressive landmark that marks an important intersection. The designer obviously drew on Italian Renaissance palazzos to create an odd confection of parts. A heavy stone rusticated basement story features large windows; the brick upper floors have round arches that attempt to pull the composition together.
