Historic Detroit

Every building in Detroit has a story — we're here to share it

Hotel Charlevoix - Photos

The main staircase was partially removed from the Charlevoix (see missing steps at left) to discourage trespassers.

The derelict Hotel Charlevoix sits next to its empty neighbor, the Park Avenue Building, in June 2012.

The Hotel Charlevoix, at Park and Elizabeth, is one of the few derelict survivors in the area; most everything else in the neighborhood has either been razed for parking lots or redeveloped.
