aztec on route 66

Aztec Hotel 003Monrovia financiers built the Aztec Hotel in 1925 . It was the only premier hotel in the area but its fortunes seemed to quickly  sag , especially during the Depression . Aztec Hotel 006

It was designed in a loose Mayan motif .

There is a bar which adjoins the hotel lobby . The bar used to be The Brass Elephant . It seems it’s for lease now .

The hotel has new owners . I have hope for it . Aztec Hotel 010 Aztec Hotel 011 Aztec Hotel 012 Aztec Hotel 008 Aztec Hotel 007
