HotelSanDiego.UStm: Hotel San Diego

Hotel San Diego (339 W. Broadway, downtown San Diego, California) closed June 2001. It was demolished April 2006 to make way for a federal courthouse annex. This travel and hotel website honors the former grand hotel. Hotel San Diego was constructed in 1914 by prominent local developers, the Spreckels Brothers (of Spreckels Sugar fame), and their architect, Harrison Albright. The building is one of only three that remain from their collaboration.

In latter years Hotel San Diego became a residential hotel, that was poorly maintained, and rented mainly by elderly and low-income residents on a weekly or monthly basis.

I took most of the photos below May 2002, several months after the hotel closed. I took the hotel demolition photo April 15, 2006. Click on the images below for a high-resolution images:
