Suffolk Towers (Elliott Hotel)
Dominating the street and an Up Town landmark, this building was one of Suffolk's entries in the skyscraper sweepstakes of the 1920s. An eight-story tower rises out of a two-story base that extends along the street front. The base contained commercial spaces and the hotel's dining room and ballroom. The idiom, as might be expected from the Peebles office, is Colonial-Georgian Revival and very well carried out.
