Crown Room

The Crown Room was considered an architectural achievement spanning 160 feet by 60 feet, without any pillars to interrupt the view. It served as the hotel's main dining room and hosted many prominent events, including a banquet with England's Prince of Wales in 1920, a celebration of Charles Lindbergh's famous solo trans-Atlantic flight in 1927, and the first state dinner held outside the White House in 1970. This iconic San Diego venue is also famous for its 33-foot high ceiling, paneled in beautiful Oregon sugar pine. Wizard of Oz author L. Frank Baum is credited for designing the famous crown chandeliers, which were installed c. 1911.

The renovation of this space will include a restoration of the original wood, replacement of non-historic entry doors to match the originals, electrical upgrades, and refreshed carpeting and wall sconces.

Restorations in this space include the refurbishment of the beautiful woodwork, electrical upgrades, new carpeting, and replacement of non-historic doors with replicas of the originals.
