Many of you know that the setting I used for the Berton Hotel cozy mystery was Mineral Wells and most of the descriptions used in the novel were from the Baker Hotel which is a building that has fascinated me for years. The hotel closed nearly forty years ago, and because of the decay, tours of the building stopped.
There has been talk over the years of re-opening the hotel, but until recently these plans seemed to have fizzled out. That was until The Baker Hotel Development Group discussed plans to make The Baker Hotel in to condos, but then decided on a restoration.
I wasn't able to find any information regarding the restoration status, but The Baker Hotel does have a Facebook page (here).
