Overview Looking Northeast

This is the intersection of the original alignment of the Lincoln Highway, that runs in front of the hotel, and the Herbet Hoover Highway, which ran north-south along the length of the hotel. The Lincoln Highway was America's first coast-to-coast paved highway. The hotel served both motorists and rail passengers. The transcontinental railroad runs just a few blocks from the hotel.
