The St. Cloud Hotel located on Route 66 in Chandler Oklahoma is in need of repair and restoration.  The building was built in 1903 is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The St. Cloud Hotel opened April 24, 1904, part of "Gormley's Block," the 1200<br />
block on the east side of Manvel Avenue. The property of John Edward Gormley, a<br />
Chandler pioneer, the St. Cloud was noted for its elegance and for its elevator,<br />
the first in the town. It competed successfully with Chandler's other hotels. The<br />
upper floors were intended to serve as the town hospital but no record of such<br />
service exists. During World War I the Oklahoma National Guard leased rooms in the<br />
hotel for administrative offices and officers' quarters. It was later owned by<br />
honeybee and pecan processors and served as a warehouse, a cabinet maker's shop,<br />
and a garment factory.
