Louis Sullivan died in the Warner Hotel, 3301 S. Cottage Grove, Chicago, on Aril 14, 1924. See: Louis Sullivan: Prophet of Modern Architecture by Hugh Morrison.

See also: Jazz Age Chicago: Hotel Index at: chicago.urban.history

I would like to add, that I presume the Warner Hotel no longer exists, but I think it is interesting to note that this hotel was located across Cottage Grove Avenue from where the Civil War Confederate prisoner of war Camp Douglas once stood.

Also, several of the infamous Chicago Black Sox stayed at the Warner Hotel, and it is where on September 29, 1919 they negotiated a payment of $80,000 from gamblers to lose the 1919 World Series with the Cincinnati Reds.
