Gaylord and out stepped the President of the United States..., 'Fitzgerald Grant.' He was later seen exiting with 'Olivia Pope.' All to be shown in an upcoming episode of 'SCANDAL.'
The Gaylord had been established as the residence of 'Olivia Pope' a few seasons back, but only teleported to Washington, D.C. So, always keep an eye out for those Gaylord interior and/or exterior shots throughout the seasons.
And thank you, to the always professional crew of 'SCANDAL.'
In other presidential history, Richard Nixon kept an apartment in the Gaylord while running for governor of California and before becoming President. We also have a photo of President John F. Kennedy standing in front of the Gaylord, in one of our lobby cases.

Gaylord comic, Carl and his crew will be having another show in our lobby. According to the line-up, guitar comic(x) Brian O'Sullivan will be appearing twice. That's how zany these shows get! Oh and the show will be taped for Comedy Central consideration. Come out and show your love. Enjoy!

Gaylord residents could purchase their groceries & assorted sundries. Today, photo above, the same space serves as our 'Laundry Facility.' Not as pleasing to the eye, as back then, but still a space thoroughly used by our tenants. Where did all of those stately shelving units and display cases go? Just look at those finials on top of the shelving units! Attention to detail was everywhere.

Gaylord, the Ambassador Hotel. This was their original entrance and just look at that gold water fountain standing regally out front. The water fountain and Ambassador pylon still stand today, but with a bit more patina on it. Thanks to our lovely Lana for finding & forwarding this photo on to us.

Gaylord for several years in the 1920's. Buster & Natalie were frequent visitors to the Gaylord.
