Remarks: The plans call for a lounge and dining room, in  Spanish renaissance style. A mezzanine floor will be built over the office, locker rooms and billiard rooms which open into the lounge and dining room. A kitchen will be built in the rear and and the same service as the hotel furnishes its patrons will be supplied to the club by the hotel management. A private club elevator will connect the club with the hotel lobby and ground floor and a roof garden, opening off the lounge will be included in the plans.

A committee composed of Maurice Schwartz, C.M. Grider, B.F. Fillmore, Dr. William Chapman and W. T. Ritter  was appointed by A. H. Culwell, president of the club, to make a report on the furniture and draperies for the club  to be in keeping with the Spanish theme .
