Facts

  • The first owner, Zach T. White, experienced the 1906 San Francisco earthquake, and demanded a design that was both fire- and earthquake proof. One consequence of this requirement was fireproofing with gypsum wall material.
  • The original Hotel Paso del Norte was designed in a eclectic style with Sullivanesque influences. It was constructed of reinforced concrete faced with brick and terra-cotta.
  • The interior features marble surfaces and a Tiffany-designed art glass dome.
  • The Hotel Paso del Norte was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1979.
