It's All in the Details


For the last two days I've been taking you on a tour of the freshly restored art deco Professional Building in downtown Phoenix.  It has a new life as a Hilton Garden Inn.  At the far end of the huge lobby I featured yesterday, was the entrance to the hotel's business center.


The business center had two different levels with conversation areas in each.  That seems to make it very convenient for small business meetings to take place without having to reserve a special room.


The business center was cozy as well as functional.  On the far wall you can get a glimpse of the row of computers available for doing a little research or to check in for a flight.  Traditionally, this is the location of where the bank vault would have been.  I can't really tell if this area was once the vault but, typically, the bank vault was always at the far end of a long lobby.


I enjoyed these four prints on the wall.  Each one depicts some piece of the art deco detail from the outside of the building.  I like this idea, bringing a little bit of the building's outside history inside the newly remodeled interior.

It seems the new owners have made excellent use of the old bank. The details are perfect here.

I like the grillwork in the panels between the two rooms. Looks like it matches that heating vent grill you posted the other day. They really DID do an amazing job on this building!

I can't tell you how much I like this building! I could live in the lobby or the business center! :) More superb photography, too. It's not always easy getting really good interior photos.
