I've always been disappointed that my Junior Prom, which was supposed to be held at this magnificent hotel had to be relocated due to nationwide circumstances at the time (during the turbulent 60's).
Fortunately, a friend invited me to join her there for High Tea which was absolutely fantastic. Just walking in the door of this majestic building takes your breath away. I almost felt like I was going to the Prom I missed all those years ago. You get such a feeling of elegance, and feel as if you're being treated like royalty. It was truly a treat. I wanted so badly to get a peek into the ballroom where my prom would have been held but there was a wedding going on at the time and the hallway was blocked off where they were taking photos. I was so disappointed to not be able to time travel back into my youth and see what might have been.
I'd love to get the opportunity to stay there, but as a local there is really no need. Some day I might just decide to do it for a weekend treat. I'm sure it would be well worth the experience.
