The Grace Hotel
A fusion of neo-Gothic architecture, Art Deco charm and contemporary sophistication
About the building
The Grace Hotel is a beautifully restored 1920s building in the heart of the CBD. Architects Morrow & Gordon modelled the neo-Gothic architecture on Chicago’s Tribune Tower and designed an Art Deco interior.
The Grace Brothers opened ‘The Grace’ in 1930. The first two levels served as a department store, and the remaining storeys provided office space for the company and other merchants. The building served various purposes over the years, and an extensive refurbishment during the 1990s restored many of the building’s original features.
Since 1997, the heritage-listed Grace has been home to the luxury Grace Hotel, with its interior design fusing Art Deco charm and contemporary sophistication.
