The luncheon was lovely – Other guests were Melrose Robinson, Marjorie Erwin, Wanda Howard and Lois Tendrick. After lunch Mrs. Miller (hostess of the hotel) took us to the penthouse on the 18th floor. It is furnished like the rooms on the colored paper of Good Housekeeping – simple yet expensive. 3 rooms, bath and kitchenette complete plus terrace with shrubs and printed iron furniture. Rents for only $250.00 a month*. We tried all the chairs! We sat in the upstairs lounge and talked until three.
*$250.00 is $4328.18 today.
