Pictures from my trip!
 
Some of you asked to see pictures from my recent little trip. We stayed at the Quaker Square Inn which has been designated as a US Historical Site. The rooms are unique - circular because they are built inside of old grain silos. :D

Wow, that looks so cool with the circular rooms! :) were you very high up? :)

Looks like a really nice place. Did it feel odd being in a room with rounded walls?
The building looks almost futuristic while the inside has the old world charm.
Did you have a good time? The photos are really great. Thanks for sharing your trip with us. :D

What a lovely unique hotel. The rooms look really nice and comfortable. Just the sort of place I would love. I hate modern and it has really old world charm.

Wow! That is such a cool place. What'd you have for breakfast ? :p:D;) Just kidding. Really nice hotel. Glad you had a good time :)

The hotel has a mini train in it? :eek:

I love that circular room. You must have had a great time there :D

How was the food?

I'm glad you had a lovely time. That hotel is awesome! Love the art. Thanks for sharing.

Very cool artwork and internal layout, making the best of the original structure. Nice photography, too.;)

I like it when they restore old buildings. A very nice idea to change the silo in a hotel. And I also like the older type of room, not modern, but more country like. Hope you understand what I mean.
Here my optometrist do restorations of old house. Her rooms looks like the olden days houses with high ceilings with patterns and borders on the walls, wooden floors, wooden windowsils, the wooden windows which moves up and down.
Here they are changing an old power station into different shops, but the inside is so modern that it will not remind you of a power station.
I am glad that you enjoyed your stay and that you have shared it with us.
