The guide explained how the various sections of the hotel was built.
The high middle section was built after most of the outer walls were built.
And the last section built was done recently and consisted of an indoor pool and spa.
This was to keep the hotel's five star rating.
The famous rose salon that Winston Churchill used during World War II.

The grand ballroom with crystal chandeliers.
Each chandelier now worth over $45,000.

Last window is actually a door to bring cars and large objects into the ballroom.
