This is the lobby mailbox at the Hawthorne Hotel. Though it takes a significant amount of brass polish to keep it sparkling, we love having it at our Hotel. It is connected to a mail chute that begins on the sixth floor and is accessible from every floor in-between.
|Here is the start of the mail chute, on the sixth floor.|

When looking through the Hotel archives, I found this wonderful photo of the mailbox from the episode of Bewitched that featured the Hawthorne Hotel.

I hope to see you here (letter in hand) very soon,
