2)  Historic Building

The Loraine was originally conceived as a 250-room hotel in 1922 by Milwaukee hotelier Walter Schroeder.  Architect Herbert Tullgren designed the Tudor Revival structure and construction was completed in June 1924. Hotel Loraine (named after Mr. Schroeder’s niece) was so popular that a 100-room addition was completed one year later.  

Hotel Loraine was the largest and arguably the most prestigious hotel in Madison.  At an initial cost of $1.1 million, Hotel Loraine was the most expensive commercial building in the city.  Its prominent location, on the site of Henry Proudfit’s home, provided a seamless link between the affairs of Wisconsin’s government at the Capitol and the academia at the University of Wisconsin. 

Hotel Loraine was renowned for its grand lobby, exquisite dining, and the fabulous Crystal Ballroom; site of many debutante balls, wedding receptions, and Madison’s largest social functions. It played host to numerous notables during its history including Ethel Barrymore, Gloria Swanson, Mae West, Harry Truman, and John F. Kennedy.  

The building has since been designated a national landmark due to its history, location, and architectural significance.
