De Hotel 5150

from "Are We Going To Hell?" by John F. Morgan, The Gateway, August 1915 

I've heard Eloise referred to by many names but never once as an equal to the Hotel Pontchartrain! Yet, that's what John F. Morgan, an editor of The Gateway compared it to in the August 1915 issue. He was right about the out of control spending (and that was a hundred years ago!) but a little pedestrian with the fancy hotel comments considering that if it was necessary to build something both official and efficient, in terms of a poorhouse and infirmary, that it wouldn't be some tent city on the side of the road.
