Holiday Inn Headed To Downtown's Historic Core

New, 1 comment

LA Cowboy breaks the news that Holiday Inn will open in the Historic Core, on Spring between 4th and 5th and Blogdowntown does a follow-up, noting that this may be the first Holiday Inn to occupy a former parking garage. And did you want little history about the building Holiday Inn is taking? Per Blogdowntown: "The 13-story annex at 417 S. Spring street was built in 1928 as the Metropolitan Parking Garage. The Title Insurance & Trust Company acquired the structure in late 1952 from Bentley J. Tufeld and remodeled it into office space in 1954. The expansion added 178,000 square feet to the 350,000 square feet of offices housed next door in the company's 433 S. Spring location. Four floors of parking were kept at the bottom of the building, and the exterior was given a modern look and colored to match the headquarters next door. If plans go through and the Holiday Inn is installed, you'll get the chance to sleep where Model A's once parked." [Old Times newspaper photo via Blogdowntown]
