The Belleview Biltmore Hotel was one of the hotels we stayed in during our holiday in Florida, 2008. It was built in 1896 and had a very princess-like style with furnitured ball rooms etcetera. Very old, but classy. Sure some stuff was in need of renovation but most of it was in pretty mint condition.
"The hotel was built in 1896 by railroad tycoon Henry B. Plant and was added to the U.S. National Register of Historic Places on December 26, 1979. However, this provides no protection from demolition." (Wikipedia)
The current owner is planning to demolish it. Hell no, USA already doesn't have a lotta history and when they have a historic place, they want to replace it by money making condo's?! WHAT'S UP WITH THAT.
Please save the Biltmore. I'd love to visit it again. If it reopens ever.
