Remember the monstrosity of a roof that was installed over what was Taps bar? That was not a part of the original design. After examining it closely it no way matches to construction of the original hotel. This roof covers what was the original front entrance and courtyard of the hotel.
They are planning to remove this roof and return it back to the original design (as close as possible of course). They are even going to try to restore the iron gate arch entry way as shown in this picture.
You don’t think about hotels having a walk-in safe. Lederhous told us that back in the day people only carried cash. The hotel and guests would lock up their valuables in this safe. This too will be preserved.
Some upgrades and improvements planned include: adding large bay windows from the ball room area to the courtyard, adding bathrooms to many of the rooms that don’t have them, making the old antique traction elevator easier to operate.
