Retro Postcards: Sheraton Washington Hotel

Sheraton I can’t resist picking up vintage postcards when I’m browsing junk shops, which is reason enough to start a new series of posts under the Retro Postcards banner. And we’ll kick off with this gem from the Sheraton Washington Hotel.

Now, I’ve never been to Washington. Indeed, I’ve never been to the US – but if the Sheraton Washington Hotel still looks like this, I’m calling the travel agent tomorrow. A great example of 70s excess, from the chrome pillars and chrome-clad stairwats through to the space age seating. I also like how the image has been slightly stretched to fit the format.

Have you been to the hotel? Does it still look like this? Let us know. And if you have scans of quirky postcards, send them in – we’d love to feature them.
