Prince Charles Hotel Being Restored to Majestic Glory

Prince Charles Hotel is a historic hotel building located in Fayetteville, North Carolina. It was built by James Addison Jones between 1923 and 1925 and is a seven-story, Colonial Revival style steel frame building sheathed in brick and concrete.

It features an Italian Renaissance-style palazzo. The original section housed 125 rooms. A 60-room addition was built in 1942. Jordan Jones, the project manager for the new owners of the hotel, is the great-great-grandson of the builder. The structure is being converted into apartments and commercial spaces [see the video {link below} for details]. 

More history… The photographs below are from the Fayetteville Observer March 3, 2017, Archives.

My recent photographs and a December 14, 2018, 39-minute tour through the building by Jordan Jones showing renovation progress.

The artist who created “Community,” on display in Fayetteville, North Carolina

Mr. Okonkwo is from East Nigeria and now lives in Fayetteville, Georgia. Here is a catalog with a gallery of pieces he created and has for sale. Earlier tonight, I published a blog article with photographs of “Community,” as it adorns the front of our City Hall. I took those pictures the day before Thanksgiving.
