Downstairs: Gallery & Ballroom
French doors will lead into the Ballroom from the Gallery (where the steps and elevator are located). The "Head Table" faces the dance floor and grand piano. Due to the "floating" dance floor, the Ballroom can be reconfigured to seat many guests for different functions.
Downstairs: Brew Pub
This 3D view is looking down into the Brew Pub rooms. The Brew Pub will be located in the basement on the west side of the building. A spiral staircase from the first floor (along with the outside steps and the Gallery elevator) will bring the guest into a first rate, non-smoking Brew Pub. Special dark and light Wheat beers are being developed at this time by the Lodgepole Creek brewery to be proudly served at the Wheat Growers Hotel Brew Pub. (Public restrooms are also shown and are accessed by the Brew Pub and Ballroom facilities).

This shows the west end of the 'ballroom' which replaces the gallery in the older plans. The room is multi-purpose. Here it is shown as the Lodgepole Lounge, and extension of the Pub. The space can also be used as a side lounge for the ballroom, or the furniture can be changed and this can be used with the ballroom as the head table space or simply an extension of the ballroom.

2nd Floor: Grand Hallway
When ascending to the second floor, guests will be greeted by the splendor of the Grand Hallway. The original airshafts have been retained for their historical value. Skylights in each airshaft will light up the hallway during the day and provide sunlight for hanging plants within the shafts. The ten Historical Suites are located on this second floor.
Keep watching!! From old to new!!!
2nd Floor: Mezzanine
This beautiful balcony is extended over the registration desk below. Viewed from the front lobby and surrounded by railings, musicians use to play to the guests! Notice the grand piano on the mezzanine. Also the original painting on the front wall has been saved and will be restored to its original grandeur. (The painting in this picture is not the current or future one. The original painting is of a wheat harvest).

The following 3D pictures are conceptual drawings generated by David C. McMorran after touring the Hotel with Kent and Sue Worker. David has his Bachelor Degree in Architecture and Masters Degree in Landscape Architecture from California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo, California. He has a great passion for historic buildings and was trilled to be asked to be a part of this project! David is Sue's oldest brother and she is so appreciative to have his excitement and expertise. Each 3-D picture takes approximately four hours to generate. Thanks Dave!!
