Union Doors Installs Horton Revolver-
The Park Plaza Hotel in Boston recently revealed a number impressive renovations to the historic 1927 upscale hotel. The hotel is located right off the Boston Common, the USA’s oldest park.
Union Doors was brought in by K & G to help refurbish the entryway of the hotel by installing a new pedestrian revolver. The door installed is a customized ten foot tall Horton “Grand” Revolver. The new door creates a visually stunning and luxurious entrance to the hotel which sets the tone for what awaits in the new Park Plaza lobby.

There have been several informative articles written about the renovation; in this post we aggregated portions of several of them with links to take you to the full article.
American Builders Quarterly Post
In the early 1900s, E. M. Statler began what would become one of the United States’ first major hotel networks. Through his namesake brand of accommodations, Statler introduced the en suite bathroom to the hotel industry, as well as the now-ubiquitous “do not disturb” sign.
Among the Statler properties still standing today is the Boston Park Plaza Hotel. Built in 1927, with a name change in 1976 when it was sold to the Irving M. Saunders family, it is a member of the Historic Hotels of America program and a Boston landmark.
The hotel’s entry has a new revolving door, a new canopy, and new finishes, and to help with the flow of lobby traffic, the check-in desk has been moved to an office space, creating extra room. The lobby bar on the first- floor has also been relocated, putting it front and center with a striking back wall that visitors will encounter immediately upon entry, and it’s complemented by artwork reflecting Boston’s present and past.
