Baltimore Hotel
Baltimore Hotel
TitleBaltimore Hotel
DescriptionPostcard of the Baltimore Hotel
Historical ArticleWhen the first part (six stories) of the Hotel Baltimore was erected at the southeast corner of Eleventh and Baltimore in 1897, it replaced the Merril Lumber yard.

Three additions were built, bringing the height to 11 stories and extending the hotel to Twelfth street, with entrances on Eleventh , Twelfth and Baltimore. A tunnel under Baltimore connected the bar to the Willis Wood theater for intermission libations.

Well remembered are the Renaissance room with Carrara marble columns and the elegant Pompeian room with a marble fountain, which now stands on Wenonga road one block north of Tomahawk road and the site is now occupied by a 4-story parking structure, with street-level stores.
