At the Hotel Camfield

Only a block away from Dayton’s, the 100 room fireproof Hotel Camfield sat on the corner of 8th and Marquette for over 50 years. Back in 1914 the hotel placed advertisements in newspapers all over the state. Single room with a private baths could be had for a buck a night. A double would run you $1.50.

    I remember staying in a Camfield or Campfield Hotel in downtown Mpls. as a boy, with my parents. I always remembered this hotel as being in the Rand Tower. I remember walking up stairs to the 2nd floor where the hotel lobby was located. That might have been that grand art deco entryway to the Rand Tower with it’s grand staircase to the 2nd floor. But, this postcard image of the Camfield Hotel is obviously not the Rand Tower, and the street addresses are different too. So, perhaps my memory is incorrect. Was there ever a hotel in the lower floors of the Rand Tower?
