Wallpaper Convention in Cincinnati – Art Deco Hotel


I just got back from a week upping my skill-set at the Wallcovering Installers Association’s annual convention, this year held in Cincinnati. We stayed downtown at the Hilton Netherland hotel.

The hotel opened in 1931, and was built in the Art Deco style. This place is an amazing testament to the glory of that fantastic, fanciful design style! … And everything is intact (not torn down, like they do in Houston to any building over 30 years old).

Enjoy the photos!

The last photo is not Art Deco – it’s a picture of the roof of the building, showing large tubs of potted flowers, surrounded by beehives. The large outbuilding on the right bears a painted sign, something like “Bee House.”

The hotel uses the honey in its restaurant.
