Hotel 1928 – Coming in Fall 2023

Featuring a Moorish-style arched entry and ballroom large enough for hundreds, the building’s architecture remains largely unchanged since it opened in 1928. Its entry foyer still has decorative symbols of Freemasons and Shriners, including scimitars, double eagles, and the Masonic compass and square.

The Grand Karem Shrine Building is undergoing an extensive redevelopment and will be featured in a new series called “Fixer Upper: The Hotel,” coming in Fall 2023.

Hotel 1928 will feature three restaurants: a rooftop terrace, a ground-floor restaurant, and a café on the first level.

Bookings will open in Spring/Summer 2023.

Hotel 1928 will also accept bookings for events or wedding. The hotel is currently accepting booking inquiries for late 2023/early 2024 on their website at
