The Hotel Ramona occupied the southwest corner of West 3rd Street and South Spring Street


F.B. Mallory operated the Hotel Ramona in 1897. The hotel took the name of the main character in Helen Hunt Jackson's novel, Ramona, published in 1884, and whose fame spread tourist interest in Southern California.

Building Notes

The Hotel Ramona stood next to the Currier Building (212 West 3rd Street) from 1895-1903.

There was also a Hotel Ramona in San Luis Obispo, CA, c. 1900. A fire ruined the San Luis Obispo hotel in 1905. (See "Fire destroys hotel," Los Angeles Examiner, 11/11/1905, p. 4.)


The Queen Anne-styled Hotel Ramona was razed in 1903. (See Los Angeles Times, 08/22/1903, part III, p. 1.)
