Park Plaza Hotel
(Los Angeles, CA)
The Park Plaza Hotel in downtown Los Angeles was designed by renowned art deco architect Claud Beelman, the Senior Partner at the prestigious firm of Curlett & Beelman. The Neo-Gothic building was originally designed as a lodge for the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks. Set on the shores of MacArthur Park, the building was eventually transformed into a luxury hotel.
In the early 1980s, the City of Los Angeles designated the Park Plaza Hotel as a City of Los Angeles Cultural Affairs Department Historic-Cultural Monument (No. 267).
