More Art Deco: The Netherland Plaza Hotel

The Netherland Plaza Hotel was completed in 1931. Located in downtown Cincinnati, it is a National Historic Landmark. This photo is the hotel's restaurant, The Orchids at Palm Court.


The Palm Court features Brazilian rosewood paneling, two-story murals, and a dramatic Rookwood pottery fountain, shown in the photo below.

Personal note: I was thinking about discontinuing this blog. i was beginning to wonder if anyone was looking at it. I love the few of you who always come and leave a comment. You make me want to continue because I love hearing from you. I could use any advice anyone could offer, on how I could make it more interesting to come here.

Good news Judy, that you'll continue. I love to visit here. I maybe a bit slow getting around to it - but so nice to know you're there in such an interesting part of the world so far away.These days I have a snowflakes chance in hell of getting to the places you show, so am very appreciative!
