Ansonia Hotel, New York
The Ansonia Hotel, billed itself as “Fireproof in Every Sense of the Word” (how many senses are there):
For once the advertisement may actually have been true because the hotel is not only still standing, it has had a very rich history including being featured in many books and movies over the years.
In 1915 a room and a bath cost $3.00, maid service was optional and catered to Transient and Permanent guests. It billed itself as the finest Apartment Hotel in the World.
