  • A visit to the lobby and the hallway only takes a minute. What were they thinking? A mish-mash of Central and Native American motifs makes for an unbelievable decor.

  • Truly a gorgeous building in the heart of the motor city. The building appears to house some store fronts, but unfortunately they were closed on the day I went. Which was a shame. Otherwise this place would have received a higher rating. Only downside is the homeless people that line the building bumming cigarettes and money from you.
  • Stunning entryway. It is like a byzantine church. Free to walk around. Highly recommend spending a few moments. Great place to get out of the heat or cold when wandering around downtown.
