Transcript JEFFERSON MODERNIZATION BEFORE Upon the purchase of The Jefferson Hotel in January 1951 immediate steps were taken to determine what changes should be made in the property to bring it into line with our operating ideas and policies. A series of traffic surveys gave a complete picture of pedestrian activity and clearly indicated the importance of the hotel's two frontages. This was one factor, but there were others that had to be known . . . what was the traffic pattern inside the lobby? . . . did it conform to present-day conception of operation? Did aisle space carry guests to front office desk, dining rooms, etc., with the least possible confusion? Were traffic lanes placed and spaced to get maximum merchandising value from revenue producing ground floor areas? In rebuilding where should food rooms be located? When these surveys were charted, management had a clear picture of what needed to be done. Working plans were formulated to transform the old layout into a modern, high income producing area completely fitting all conditions known to exist at the present time. The main entrance to the hotel was moved to the center of the building and aisles created that would distribute traffic without interference. The main traffic lane in the lobby now leads direct from the entrance to the entrance of the main dining room. This room has been completely converted into a modern theatre-type dining room, and is constructed on four levels affording good visibility from all parts of the room. It was decided that a high grade drug store, with limited food service facilities operated by the hotel, and open for business 24 hours every day, would be an asset to the hotel and provide an operation that could take full advantage of the high traffic count of the corner space. The 28-stool soda fountain and lunch counter is an important part of the drug store. All that is retained of the old coffee shop is the location and size. Among other things, service lanes and table arrangements were given careful study and now the coffee shop is laid out to meet today's competitive conditions. 23
