Book Cadillac Hotel 3

Manufacturer: Shenango China
User: Book Cadillac Hotel
Date: 1924 - 1940s
Notes: Completed in 1924 by brothers J.B., Frank and Herbert Book, this 33-story hotel was the tallest building in Detroit, Michigan and also the tallest hotel in the world at that time. Originally built at a cost of $14 million, the Book Cadillac Hotel with 1,200 rooms was opulence at its finest. The hotel had several owners over the years, but it closed in 1984 and the contents were liquidated in 1986. The hotel sat vacant for the next 20 years, suffering from neglect and vandalism.

In June 2006, the Cleveland-based Ferchill Group began the $180 million renovation project to restore the hotel as The Westin Book Cadillac Detroit (a Westin Hotel & Residences).
