History

royalpalmhoteldetroitThe Park Avenue House (formerly called the Royal Palms Hotel) is one of three hotels that Louis Kamper designed for what was once the heart of Detroit’s hotel district.  Kamper also designed the Eddystone Hotel and the Park Avenue Hotel.  The Park Avenue House is 13 stories of masonry with Italian Rennaisance detailing and ornamentation.  Look close at the hood ornamentation above some windows and the detailing of the parapet.  The inset bay windows on the ground floor are an unusual feature for this type of building
