The Statler and Hilton Rooms
The Hilton Rooms

In the mid 1960's the lobby and main dining room were remodeled and reduced to one-story spaces. This created large amounts of new floorspace on the mezzanine.

To help keep the hotel competitive in the convention business this space was given over to meeting rooms. The rooms which were placed over the lobby were called the Hilton Rooms. Those which went over the dining room were the Statler Rooms. These rooms were sparse in decor. Their only decorative details were the arched windows of the old rooms they replaced.

What they lacked in design they made up for in modern amenities. They featured modern lighting and electrical wiring. They also could be sized off to fit a group's needs with movable wall partitions.

The Statler and Hilton Rooms remained popular until the hotel's closing. They remain intact today.
