After having lived in a European city for over 10 years, I naturally gravitated to the Taft. Why? For me, I appreciate the history of the building that “old world feeling” that you get as you enter the Grand Lobby with the Tiffany dome above. Its an amazing space! In addition, I love the location. Feeling lonely? Just walk outside The Taft and into a world of animated energy – of people walking or riding their bikes or people standing in groups talking. There is always something to see and do just outside The Taft’s doors. And, I never take for granted the friendly and helpful staff, the respectful nature of the residents, the cleanliness of the building and the responsiveness of the maintenance crew.
