(San Diego, CA)
The Andaz Hotel (originally the Maryland Hotel) was built in 1913 by renowned architect William Sterling Hebbard. The structure is one of the only remaining of Hebbard’s hotels and had, at one time, been called “one of the most modernly equipped in San Diego”. During the early 20th century, it was the only hotel in San Diego whose rooms had connecting baths, telephones and closets. In addition to these luxuries, the hotel had a heating system and a built in vacuum system that cleaned the rooms. Located in the historic Gaslamp District, this chic historic hotel is one of the favorites in the area.
