Crowne Plaza Hotel Downtown is now The Whitehall (again).

It's a re-rebranding, for The Whitehall Hotel was the original name when the newly-built hotel opened in 1963. The legacy name revival is not entirely unprecedented. Think Sam. The Sam Houston Hotel (built 1924) went Alden, and is now back to "The Sam".
