Park Hotel

The Park Hotel on Knapp Street at Broadway in Toledo, Ohio. The hotel was built in 1909, near Union Station, primarily to accommodate railroaders and traveling salesmen. In later years, the quality of its clientele declined and it became, as one publication called it, “a $15.00 a night flophouse.” The ancient heating system gave out and, on December 26, 2001, the Park closed its doors. It was a victim of copper theft in early 2008.
