1. The Savoy Hotel and Grill Marker
Inscription. The Savoy Hotel was constructed between 1890 and 1906 during a building boom which created some of the most architecturally significant buildings in the central business district. The first major hotel enroute from the old Union depot, it served as lodging for important political and stage personalities. It is of late nineteenth and early twentieth century design,with neoclassic and art nouveau features. The hotel lobby is preserved intact with the leaded stained glass dome 12 feet in diameter. The original Savoy Grill Room, with its stained glass, dark-oak woodwork, and historic murals by Edward Holslag, is the oldest restaurant in Kansas City and provides an authentic example of the dining style of our forebearers.
 
Erected 1997.
