I LOVE the GCH, always have. I know in some ways it is similar to the Floridian, but it also exhibits various influences from both Arts& Crafts as well as the hunting lodges of the Great Northwest. They spent a lot of time and money planning, designing, and building this magnificent hotel. I equate it to the crown jewel of DCA. Sadly the crown IMO doesn't deserve the jewel. It seems as if all the time, money, and effort were spent on the hotel and that what was left was tossed together and called DCA. So here is my question
Did the efforts to GCH's theme, and the budget for GCH's construction contribute to the overall lack of showmanship and theme in the initial construction of DCA?
