Regency Inn
Denver, CO
The Regency Inn was built in 1969. The circular penthouse suite was one of Elvis Presley's favorite places to stay. There was once a structure with a gold geodesic dome roof that was used as an exhibit hall. In 2005, the dome was destroyed by fire during renovations. The hotel is now used for student housing. The base of this smaller white structure is reminiscent of the former dome. For more, see these websites: 1 and 2. [map]
