Built in 1927 by Norwegian immigrant Alex Johnson, it quickly became one of the most popular hotels in town. Over the years, many famous people have stayed at the hotel, including President Franklin D. Roosevelt and legendary actor John Wayne.
The hotel is also known for its classic architecture with ornate marble floors, wood carvings, cathedral ceilings, and grand staircases. It was designed to reflect the Tudor Revival style, with carved sculptures adorning the walls and stained-glass windows.
The original lobby still stands today, complete with its original cherrywood paneling, copper ceiling tiles, and etched mirrors.
