The Alexandria Hotel at 501 South Spring Street became Los Angeles’s first five-star luxury when it opened on February 12, 1906. It also served as the city’s main social center from 1906 to the end of 1920. The hotel appears in Haunted by History Vol. 1.
I’ve included a few photos of the hotel through the years. Check back often because this page is still under construction.
