Angela Hunt Tours the Statler, Which "Could Be One of the Coolest Addresses in Downtown"
So, what says Hunt about the hotel, given her admitted dislike of midcentury modern architecture?
I've heard again and again from developers that the eight foot ceilings are the killers -- they're just too low for today's marketplace. But the configuration of the rooms, combined with the wall of windows, make the ceilings seem higher than eight feet, and the rooms don't feel small or cramped at all.
Imagine Main Street Garden is done, the UNT Law School has moved into the municipal courts building, and the modern streetcar is up and running on Commerce (with its mate on Elm). The Statler could be one of the coolest addresses in Downtown.
