The Lorraine Hotel - Past and Present

The ever changing architecture of downtown Madison has allowed for the new and the old to coexist. Contemporary high rise condominiums now stand next to Art Deco buildings from the 1920's. An example of the old becoming new is the Lorraine. Originally Madison's finest hotel, the building has now been renovated into condominiums. Built in 1923, the Lorraine Hotel cost 1.1 million dollars to construct, second only to the State Capitol building. It's eclectic design made it stand out to clients like Charles Lindbergh and John F. Kennedy as they spent time in Madison. MORE
