Belleview Hotel nostalgia replicated in paintings by Christopher Still and actual items from the hotel.

Still’s infinite details are amazing. The little bell lamp shown here contains figures prominent to the new hotel.

Actual wall cut out exposing structure along with original blueprints.

Every item in this painting by Christopher Still is meaningful to the hotel. Mrs. Still (here in period costume) did a lot of research for it.

The lobby bar is filled with celebrity photos and nostalgic hotel items.
