Sheraton Motor Inn

The Colony Motor Hotel (later the Sheraton Motor Inn) is a former high-rise luxury hotel constructed in 1961 at 2040 Highland Avenue on the corner of 21st Street South.

The 15-story hotel originally boasted 208 rooms, but that number was reduced to 196 when it was remodeled and rebranded under the Sheraton nameplate by the Dextra Corporation in the mid-1960s.

When it was operated as a hotel, under the management of Mrs M. Michelli, the building boasted flexible meeting rooms on the second floor, nightly dancing in the "Cloud Room" and a penthouse restaurant, the Guv'nor's Grill or Guv'nor's Restaurant. The establishment was later called Top of 21.

The hotel was later converted into the Highland Manor apartments, an assisted living facility for senior citizens.
