405 Capitol Street

Formerly the Daniel Boone Hotel, one of Charleston’s most lavish hotels, this 1929 landmark was built by a progressive group of Charleston citizens at a cost of more than $1.2 million. It was named for Daniel Boone, frontiersman, who spent several years as a resident of Kanawha County. This hotel has been the temporary home to numerous celebrities: John F. Kennedy, Bob Hope, Tyrone Power, and Elvis Presley. The exterior has been maintained as an historical structure, while the interior has been revamped as office space; it is often cited for its incredible 10-story atrium.
