The Florence Hotel operated at 4th and Fir Streets in 1899. (See San Diego, California, City Directory, 1899, p. 306.)


Kathleen Flanigan, in her study of the work of William Sterling Hebbard, said of the Florence Hotel: "[Hebbard] remodeled the Florence Hotel with the addition of a third story, the remodeling of the front porch, and the installation of an elevator and various interior changes." (See Kathleen Flanigan, "William Sterling Hebbard,"Journal of San Diego History, vol. 33, no. 1, Winter 1987.)
