I'm thinking it was at 176 or 178 Randolph, near Gratiot.

K. Found a picture of it. It was at 178 Randolph St. Sign says its propreitor was J.C. Beutler. Only four stories. Narrow building with a restaurant on the bottom. Still haven't found out any history about it, though.

178 Randolph was its pre-1921 address. Located at the northeast corner of Randolph and E. Lafayette:


Randolph Hotel Detroit


What's your interest in it?

Did that side entrance lead to a bar by any chance? I noticed some hotels across the country of that era having them.

That's similar to the picture I found, though the one I found doesn't have cars on the side and appears to be from the 1920s.
