I recently attended a media preview lunch for the luxury boutique hotel that opens for business today in Homewood. Although I was there for lunch, we got the full tour of the place and its just too spectacular not to share here, so take a peek.

|The building dates back to 1925 and was originally a bank. Covers of some of the safe deposit boxes have been used for room numbers.|
|With blue being my favorite color, I loved seeing the rich, blue accents in the hallways and rooms.|
|The 18 guest rooms boast high ceilings and spacious accommodations.|
|Who wouldn't love to load in this bathtub?|
|The second floor hallway is decorated in blue and white.|
|Many elements of the old bank are present throughout the property, like this safe deposit vault door that is now at the entrance of the restaurant, La Voute (The Vault).|
|The bar inside La Voute features safe deposit boxes as storage drawers and the back wall of the bar is lined with safe deposit box covers.|
|Entrance to the restaurant.|
|The lobby of La Banque Hotel.|
|The centerpiece of La Voute is this vault that has the signature of former FBI director, J. Edgar Hoover on the door.|
|Photos line the wall inside the vault.|
|The dining room seats 90.|
