By 1962, the Wheel was closed, and Paul Perry agreed to buy it.
Attorney Bill Boyd represented him in the transaction, in exchange for a stake in the property.
Boyd brought in other investors: a fellow lawyer, his aunt, and his father, Sam Boyd, general manager of the Mint. Sam bought half of the property for $6,667 and Bill bought a quarter for $3,000, while another of the original investors, Joe Crowley kept the remaining quarter, until he was later bought out.
Booked two rooms at the same time in hopes they would be at least close together but were on opposite sides of the hotel.
The bed was comfortable, pillows were very comfortable, not too soft. Front desk staff was very professional and attentive.
When I voiced my frustration about this the front desk staff acted like she couldn’t care less that I was even standing there.
Nice hotel & room (though over priced for what it was), but for those reasons I will choose another hotel in the future.
