Forgotten Detroit
Book-Cadillac Hotel


Barber Shop "This is a most unusual room, departing sharply from the ordinary precedents in that it has green tile walls and green leather upholstery upon all of the barber chairs. The waiting chairs are upholstered in green leather. All of the fixtures and trimmings are silver. The barber shop and the beauty parlor are both operated by the Terminal Barber Shops."

"One hotel man who attended the offical opening of the hotel declared the Book-Cadillac barber shop to be the most complete and attractive thing of the kind in America. Every possible convenience and luxury is provided. In attractiveness and general all around utility the shop is fully in the class of the women's beauty parlor and retiring rooms - which is saying a great deal."Beauty ParlorLadies Retiring RoomEnglish GrilleBarber ShopLadies Writing Room and LoungesThe Palm RoomChinois Tea RoomVenetian Dining RoomBlue Room CafePromenadeLobby LoungeSample RoomsBed RoomsBed RoomsBed RoomsParlor SuiteParlor SuiteBed RoomsBed RoomsParlor SuiteBed RoomsCoffee ShopStoresStoresStoresStoresGrand BallroomCrystal BallroomItalian GardenPrivate Dining RoomsLoggiaFounders RoomsPrivate Dining RoomsUpper Ballroom
