Built in 1919 by the Pennsylvania Railroad, New York's Hotel Pennsylvania is one of New York City's largest hotels. Designed by the renowned firm of McKim, Mead and White, which also completed other landmark hotels such as the Waldorf Astoria.

Bounded on the west by Seventh Avenue and on the north and south by 33rd and 32nd Streets respectively, the building was erected on a site measuring 200 x 400 feet. It has 22 floors from street level to roof inclusive and three levels in the penthouse. On the ground floor there are direct entrances each from 32nd and 33rd Streets to the lobby and a special entrance on the 33rd Street side for the ballroom floor. The hotel is famous not only for its grandeur but also for its place in the world of entertainment.
