The Onesto Hotel was closed in 1969, after 39 years of service. After closing, the building went through numerous failed attempts to occupy the building. Throughout the 1970s, the building was home to low-income housing for the elderly, office spaces, and apartments. The building was restored to its former glory in 2014 by the restoration group Coon Restoration & Sealants. The restoration project proved difficult for many reasons; during the 1970s, many key architectural pieces were auctioned off and had to be duplicated by the restoration group. The building now stands as an apartment complex and a convention center.
