You are standing in the . . .
The floor is a mosaic of wine and ivory colored tile. The walls are of ornate mahogany panelling with crystal tipped electric sconces set at regular intervals. A tall wooden rack by the front door contains a number of hats - mostly fedoras - of varying styles and colors. A slender wooden lamp, shaped as a graceful elm, rests on a delicately carved wooden table beside the rack; one of its branches clasps a gently folded note. A number of doors lead off of the main passage and a carpeted wooden staircase leads up to the second floor.
A splendid holo-painting is enshrined within a candlelit recess in the hall foyer.
At the far end of the hall is a set of French doors standing open...
...as well as another staircase leading down.
Just beyond the staircase is a threshold leading to a long hallway that runs east to west.
