our state | the kimpton cardinal hotel

Nestled about 45 minutes west of our studio here in Greensboro, North Carolina, sits the beautiful Kimpton Cardinal Hotel in downtown Winston-Salem. It is a luxurious retreat filled with stunning art deco details and decor from local artists and artisans, but perhaps what is most remarkable about this newly-renovated boutique hotel is the building's origin story. It was the prototype (on a smaller scale, of course) for the Empire State Building in Manhattan. In fact, the Empire State Building sends the Cardinal Hotel a Father's Day card every year - now how adorable is that!

We always love working with Our State and were thrilled to see these images in print in March's issue. Take a peek!
