No Longer an Inn, Michigan's Holly Hotel is a Nationally-Known American Restaurant, Listed on the United States Register of Historic Places... The Essence of Award-Winning Regional and Classical Cuisine, Late Queen Anne Victorian Architecture, and a Loyal Following since 1891.... In 1863, the first railroad tracks to reach Holly were those of the Detroit and Milwaukee Line, later joined by the Flint & Holly Railroad Line, founded by Henry Crapo. A modest, two-story wood building, called "The Washington House," occupied the corner where the Holly Hotel presently stands. The Historic Holly Hotel is a domestically scaled, three-story, gabled hip-roofed, red brick, Queen Anne style structure. There are two equally important facades: a long north elevation facing Battle Alley, and a narrow, east elevation facing the railroad tracks on Broad Street. The transition from the dormered, hip-roofed, north elevation is accomplished by means of a three-story, helmet-domed, octagonal, corner tower, which is the most architecturally distinctive feature of the building.

A Tuscan column porch shelters the main entrance on the north facade is a 1913 replacement of the original 1891 porch which burned. The interior is elegantly finished with custom millwork, tin ceilings and plaster walls dating from the 1913 appearance.

The Holly Hotel is significant for its prominent role in the social life of Holly and as an example of the rapidly vanishing railroad hotels once so common in American small towns.
