Just a few blocks from here, a historic landmark was preserved in the Crowne Plaza Pensacola Hotel. The historic L & N railroad passenger depot was restored; it is now the lobby, shops, meeting rooms, and lounge. The depot is listed in the National Register of Historic Places. Its interior retains the elegance of its original artful designs and decor. Why is it that decades ago builders and designers made things to last, using not only the best materials, but the most beautiful. The elegance just makes you feel special.
The restoration included retaining pieces of the original furniture, lighting, and brass work. The roof, constructed from French clay tiles was reassembled piece by piece, after each tile had been removed, coded, cleaned, and then replaced in its original position. Click here for more information.
