Historic Hotels

Season 1 Episode 36 | 25m 47s

Walk into a historic hotel in Downtown San Diego and time stands still. We explore four incredibly preserved historic hotels. From the Palms hotel, the first luxury hotel built in 1869 to the St. James, which boasted the fastest twin elevators. Then, the Golden West with original beds authentic to the time period it was built in, and finally the majestic US Grant.
