The Board Room has a very interesting history. Ben Lomond Suites was built in 1927 to be a fire proof hotel. Then in the 1985 renovation the ceiling of the Board Room was dropped about 2 feet to allow for modern air conditioning, wiring and the fire sprinkler system. A few years later a fire started in the Board Room. The fire did not escape the room or damage any other parts of the building, but it damaged the dropped ceiling in the room. While removing the dropped ceiling, to clean up after the fire, it was discovered that portions of the hotel's original ceiling had been hidden in the 1985. The ceiling is gold with hand painted pink and green embellishments. It was decided to remove the drop ceiling completely to expose the portions of the historic ceiling that remained in the room and paint the portions of the ceiling that were damaged in the fire and '85 renovation black. Guests that visit this room can view the ceiling and imagine the hours it took to hand-paint all the little details of the hotel's ornate ceilings.

Info

The Ben Lomond Hotel, formerly The Bigelow Hotel, and was constructed in 1927. The building is located on the southeast corner of Washington Boulevard and Historic 25th Street in Ogden, Utah. The hotel achieved, and has held, the distinction of being the largest hotel in the city of Ogden from the time of its construction and it is considered one of three "grand hotels" in Utah. Architecturally the hotel is a fine example of the Italian Renaissance Revival style, common in the 1920s, but unusual for Utah. The building stands as a prime example of the growth and economic development in Ogden during the 1920s.
