Grand Ocean hotel in Brighton, England. Gorgeous! At a time when countless old English hotels and resorts are in a sad state or gone altogether, it’s nice that there are some like this that have recently been restored or have just been kept up over time.
The Grand Ocean hotel in Brighton, UK. Began re-watching classic “Poirot” episodes which often showcased classic UK art deco buildings, now my interest has been reinvigorated ten fold.

And one MORE renovation success story today!
For more than 30 years, Hotel Settles was a Big Spring eyesore. In its abandoned and deteriorating condition, it was also an embarrassing reality check of the city’s decline. Despite several attempts to revive it, the building was headed for demolition. Mercifully — and cognizant of the arduous task at hand — Big Spring-native son and visionary G. Brint Ryan, now of Dallas, purchased the landmark in 2007 and re-opened its doors this February after a $30M six-year historical rehabilitation. The 15-story Classical Revival/Art Deco hotel is now an appealing destination in West Texas that is breathing new life into the surrounding community.

The front of the El Primer. Dig the art deco style!
We can’t recommend El Primero enough. It’s a great place to stay, a fantastic deal, the owner is one of the nicest people in the world and Chula Vista is a nice place.
