The Pfister Hotel, part one
The exterior of the Pfister was lovely; the interior was elegant and decadent in a very old-school way. I was intrigued from the moment we walked into the lobby and saw the ceiling.
The room where we ate brunch was on the eighth floor, and was most likely a music hall. It had a very high ceiling with absolutely gorgeous chandeliers interspersed with beautiful designs.
Everywhere you look, there's a fascinating detail. The windows of this room were huge and had large padded bench seats at the bottom, presumably so the dancers could rest. And in between the windows there were these designs in the plaster (please forgive the awful pic):
I love how much thought and care went into everything. Door handles, bannisters, walls...everywhere you look there is something interesting. There are grandfather clocks in the lobby, for example.
And I love the chandeliers, dripping with crystal.
And even the smallest light fixtures are bedecked with crystal.
Visiting the Pfister was like taking a trip into the past. I can't wait to visit again.
