Utica, NEW YORK - Hotel Utica - 1921: This Linen Era postcard, hand dated 1921, features the Utica Hotel. The Hotel is extant and its website reports: \"The date is March 11, 1912, only five weeks prior to the fateful maiden voyage of the Titanic. On this day in history, the magnificence of Hotel Utica was complete, and its doors were opened to commercial travelers and sophisticates alike. In that era of prosperity and growth for our nation, a building was erected that paid homage to elegance and grandeur. It was a time when gentlemen tipped their hats to ladies that passed by – a time when white-gloved hands held open doors with a welcome gesture. Saluting bellhops jumped eagerly for luggage and for tips, and the smell of roasted nuts wafted up to windows from bustling streets that held a sea of top hats. It was a time when Judy Garland sang birdlike for guests from the mezzanine of the hotel, and Mickey Mantle signed autographs out front for crowds who were proud to be American. If the walls of this hotel could talk, they would tell the stories of Eleanor Roosevelt’s visits to the kitchen to compliment the chef for his Banana’s Foster; or perhaps of F.D.R.’s trips to the Gentlemen’s Cafe to relax after the Democratic Convention. Famous guests staying at the hotel have included President Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Hopalong Cassidy, Mae West and Bobby Darin. These were the days that gave birth to the glory of Hotel Utica, and now guests are able to celebrate the renaissance of its splendor, in honor of all things that are good, and not forgotten. Hotel Utica was originally a 10-story building of fireproof construction with 200 rooms, four dining rooms, a ballroom, an assembly hall, a restaurant for ladies and a grill and cafe for gentlemen. The top four floors were added in 1926, which increased the total number of rooms to 250. As business declined, the hotel ceased operating in 1972. It later became two adult care residences, the Hunter House and then Loretto Adult Residence. Time and vandalism took a toll on the landmark until it was saved.\" This sepia-toned card contains a notation on its front from its owner who noted that the Officers\' Reception of State Grange Meeting had been held at \"this hotel.\" The card is in good condition. The Albertype Co., Brooklyn, NY. Published by Geo. F. Murray. Uitca, NY.
