The Morrison Hotel was a high rise hotel in the downtown Loop community area of Chicago in Cook County, Illinois, United States. It was designed by the architectural firm of Marshall and Fox, and completed in 1915. The hotel was demolished in 1965 to make room for the First National Bank Building (now Chase Tower).
Standing 526 feet (160 m) high, the Morrison Hotel was the first building outside of New York City to have more than 40 floors. At the time of its razing, it was the tallest building to have ever been demolished anywhere in the world.
