The Taras Family purchased the Finlen in 1979 and still own and operate it today. Since then a number of significant improvements have been completed, such as; Restoration of the Hotel Lobby, Treasure State Ballroom, Copper Bowl Ballroom, and Cavalier Lounge. Other notable improvements have been made to the hotel rooms, heating plant, elevators, plumbing, and electrical. All of the visitors and guests can now experience the grandeur that is the Finlen.
