Alverne Hotel
From www.builtstlouis.net/opos/alverne.html

"Originally home to a progressive social club, then the Desoto Hotel after 1933. It was then home to a convent for many years, then a seniors residence. The building has lost virtually every bit of its original ornament; however, with the coming of the convent, it gained a stylized 1960s street level facade."

As found and appreciated March, 2011.
