“/breathtaking”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 September 2013

The Ellicott Square is such a beautiful place to vist. It is just breathtaking and has withstood the test of time. Wish there was someone available to give out information on the building, however, the city's brochures on the walking tours is informative. Beautiful!

“Son's wedding”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 June 2013

My son and his bride got married at this beautiful building in a very small May wedding. The lighting was prefect for photos. Many of my friends love seeing the pictures but I was amazed that almost all asked where they had been taken. The staircases, piano, tile floor were all featured in the photos and brought as many comments as the couple themselves.

“A beauty”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 April 2013

This is just a beautiful building. Not much more to say. It's one of the prettiest in the city. If you have any interest in architecture, this is a "must see.

“don't call it a building”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 March 2013

one of the first admonitions we received upon arrival in town was to "not call it the Ellicott Square Building, it's not a 'building,' just a square"... a remarkable example of gothic old office architecture with heavy doors and a huge court with specialty jewelers and walk-off-and-eat-it food shops... even though it's the same place, almost, Charlie the Butcher seems to serve better sandwiches here than in the ballpark across the street, so grab a bagful and sneak 'em in... too bad the word "awesome" has been done to death, as that's about the only adjective that applies to this courtyard...

“Huge Gem Near Where Bisons Play”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 September 2012

Near Pilot Field you'll see a grand old office complex with a rich history. Once the largest in the world this grand old building has aged well and it a real treat to visit. Long before Hitler misappropriated the ancient symbol, the swastika was incorporated into the mosaics of the main floor. The interior ib a masterpiece of cast iron and marble Burnham construction. It is free to visit, admire and even grab a quick bite for lunch.
