Recently a small group of us had the distinct honor and privilege of touring the Grand (Walesbilt) Hotel with its owner and chief renovation architect, Mr. Ray Brown.
The first impression one gains upon entering the building is the enormous scope of the project at hand. The fact that the hotel was closed for a long time, coupled with the realization that much vandalism occurred, means that even assessing what needs to be done was an enormous task in itself. So far Mr. Brown has accomplished much in that area. It would be simpler, but foolish, to think that one could just “splash on a coat of paint to make it look pretty.”
