La Salle Hotel

Manufacturer: Shenango China
User: La Salle Hotel
Date: 1971
Notes: This 22-story, 1000-room hotel was located at 10 North LaSalle Street in Chicago, Illinois. It opened its doors in 1909 and became famous for its cuisine in the Blue Fountain Room, the Dutch Room, the Lotus Room, and its coved ceiling in the Louis XVI Dining Room. The La Salle was also the hotel at the Chicago terminal of the Rock Island and New York Central railroads.

Cited as early as 1927 for not meeting fire codes, the inevitable happened on June 5, 1946, when someone tossed a cigarette in the bottom of elevator shaft number 5; the ensuing conflagration killed 61 men, women and children (see Life Magazine June 17, 1946).

The hotel was rebuilt soon thereafter, and this piece would have been used in the 1970s, just before the La Salle Hotel closed on July 1976 and then was imploded.
