An elegant union of new and historic, the Davenport Hotel and Davenport Tower convey a tale of persistence and panache. The Davenport Hotel, constructed in 1914 with horse carts and steam jacks, then filled with fine art and sparkling electroliers, it echoed the grandeur of an early-century ocean liner. In 2002, after the hotel narrowly escaped demolition, Walt and Karen Worthy completed a multi-million dollar renovation, retaining its priceless glamour.
