Hotel Cadillac is an old hotel on Chestnut Street downtown. It was probably a high-class place during its heyday in the 1930's - 1940's. Now it is sadly in poor condition and functions more as a home for transients than a true hotel.

2007-01-09 07:58:45   When I was young and foolish, I got a drink at the bar there on a bet. That was the quickest beer I ever drank. —JasonWilder

2007-01-09 10:15:35   Well yeah, I stopped in for a drink once in 2001. I thought it was kind of an "old man's" bar — one that smells like a barber shop and contains a bunch of guys with implicitly assigned seats. So far there is a lot of speculation but nobody who's seen a room. —JasonOlshefsky
