Aztec Hotel

The lobby is closed, but looks like the bar and back patio are open. It might have been interesting at some point. Not much to see anymore.

Aztec Hotel

Quirky former hotel with pseudo-Aztec stylings on its facade. Definitely an eye-catcher as you pass. It's one of those "What were they thinking?" moments.

[George Waters, 04/05/2021]

It grabbed your attention; we suspect that's what they were thinking. Built in 1925, the hotel was part of the short-lived fashion of Mayan Revival architecture.
