The Story Behind Our 18 Stories

In 1901, renowned Chicago architect Daniel Burnham built the Bartlett Building, rendering it the tallest building in Ohio. This landmark construction, known as the Union Trust Building, was once home to a bank and earned a place on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places. After remaining vacant for years, the building is now a luxury Renaissance hotel. We're proud to honor the original architect with our D. Burnham's restaurant and Burnham Hall Ballroom.
