Park Lane Guests
Let's turn left here on Collingwood and make another left at the light onto Monroe.
I mentioned that Gary Grant was a guest at the Park Lane. Are you wondering what his connection to Toledo could be? Have you ever seen the movie "Mr. Blandings Builds his Dream House? No? Its a great 1948 romantic comedy he did with Myrna Loy. Long story short, the Hollywood studio that produced the movie built a replica of Mr. Blandings house here in Toledo as part of an elaborate promotion. The house is still here...on the corner of Bancroft and Edgevale Road in Ottawa Hills. You're welcome!
