Mid-Century Modern Hotels - DC, San Francisco, Chicago

I have 100's of mid-century vintage motel and hotel postcards to scan and list on eBay.  Couldn't resist adding a few to my store today, and sharing them with you.   This is the Executive Hotel in Washington, D.C.  I love the retro cars featured in the foreground!   Beautiful detail in this retro art work.

This is Villa Roma in San Francisco -- San Francisco's most elegant hotel and cocktail lounge.  Gorgeous mid-century architectural design!

The air-conditioned Sherman, Chicago -- "Chicago's only loop hotel with drive-in garage."   1961 postmark.

Came across this while searching for other properties that are or would have been similar to us…very cool! We particularly like the one in D.C. since it was so close and even has a bit of a similar design.

That is very neat! I love Mid-Century design.
