Notes: The St. George Hotel, located at 57 Clark St., Brooklyn, New York, opened in 1899. By 1915, the St. George Hotel contained 1,100 rooms; a later 1929 addition made it a 12-story, 2,547-room hotel.
According to Wikipedia, the hotel is a residential cooperative building today, though it once boasted the Colorama Ballroom, as being the largest banquet room in the world, and had the largest indoor salt-water pool in the United States.
