There must not be a very rigorous historical or aesthetic review of projects in Arizona?
This is tragic in its impact on one of the nation's iconic early 20th century resorts of both architectural and historical import.
A tasteless exercise in mindless excess which buries the brilliance that was there.
Hopefully Fallingwater will not be exorcised like this great structure has been.

I'd say that Fallingwater is in considerably better hands, and is (and will be) valued for what it is. Commercial property will always be subject to whatever alterations and additions---and indignities---its owners consider to be in their interest . . .

Hotels are especially subject to alterations that bring them up to the "fad and fancy" of the present. That "small hotel" in Mason City might be the only one to escape the indignities visited upon hotels.
