Historic Information


The Onesto Hotel formally opened its doors to the public on August 20, 1930. Francis A. Onesto, a young hotelier, recognized the potential in Canton, Ohio, and commissioned The H.L. Stevens Company to design and build a hotel that would rival hotels that were found in other metropolitan cities.

No expense was spared during the construction phase of the Onesto Hotel. Fireproof Pyro-Blocs were used for the main structures. The main lobby of the building features travertine marble staircases, brass hardware, travertine terrazzo flooring, American walnut wood trims, Italian Renaissance ornamental relief ceiling panels and a stunning crystal chandelier.

In 1982, the Onesto Hotel was added to the National Register of Historic Places, which marks it as a building of historic significance in American architecture and commerce.

Now, in August 20 of 2014, the Historic Onesto Lofts has been fully restored to create market rate housing in the heart of Canton's downtown Historic District. The property will feature a bronze revolving door, and all of the existing features has been retained and restored for the enjoyment of its new occupants.
