User: The Pompeian Room – Hotel Baltimore
Date of plate: 1918 – 1924
Notes: The Baltimore Hotel was located between 11th and 12th streets and Baltimore Avenue in Kansas City, Mo. It was designed by Louis Curtis and built by Bernard Corrigan.
The Baltimore opened in the Spring of 1899 as a small six-story, 160-room hotel and grew (with several renovations and additions) to a large hostelry with 500-rooms.
The Baltimore suffered from the Great Depression, resulting in the hotel closure on August 6, 1938; it was razed in 1939.
