Hotel Somerset Advertisement, Argyle and Sheridan, Uptown Chicago
Here's a little more love for the Hotel Somerset this evening: a 1922 advertisement from Scribner's Magazine, volume LXXI, 1922. Text reads:
In Chicago's chief boulevard, near the lake, in the smart North Shore district, the luxurious new Somerset is the preferred abode of motor tourists and of others who seek highest class accommodations at moderate cost.
Kitchenette apartments (large and small) for families or single guests; also rooms, single or in suite, without kitchenettes; excellent restaurants, roof garden, solarium for parties and conventions. Spring and summer reservations now being received. For booklet and floor plans, address Hotel Somerset, Sheridan Road at Argyle, Chicago. S. W. Gerstner, Manager (formerly of French Lick Springs Hotel)
