Hotel 1928 – Coming in 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 will undergo an extensive redevelopment. The completed hotel will have an 8,000-square-foot restaurant, 6,200-square-foot meeting space, and a 3,550-square-foot rooftop terrace.
