Belleview Biltmore Hotel | Clearwater, FL
The Belleview was built as a tourist attraction, meant to increase traffic on Plant’s railway system. It quickly became a hot spot for high-profile celebrities because of the “train-to-door” service that took guests straight from the train to a private entrance. The Belleview’s guest book boasts an extensive list of celebrities such as Babe Ruth, Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, the Vanderbilts and many U.S. Presidents. Aside from being a major tourist attraction, the Belleview was used to house and train U.S. troops during WWII.
