The Hotel Maryland #1 stood on the north side of East Colorado Boulevard at North Los Robles Avenue.

Building History

Los Angeles architect John Parkinson was credited with being the architect for the Hotel Maryland #1 in the Western Architect, 07/1907, unnumbered plate. Myron Hunt designed the rustic pergola composed of round columns supporting peeled, natural branches or tree trunks in 1903.

The Hotel Maryland had a fire in 1914 that required it to be wholly reconstructed. The owner and manager of the Hotel Maryland in 1914 was Daniel Moore Linnard (1867-1949). The hotel was rebuilt the same year according to plans drawn up by Pasadena architect, Myron Hunt (1868-1952).

Building Notes

Like many large hotels in Southern California at the time, in addition to the large multi-story hotel itself, small bungalows were built on the same property; guests dislocated by the 1914 fire were relocated to these bungalows;


Hunt and Burns proposed an addition to the Hotel Maryland #1 in 1910; it is unclear if this was built.


Fire destroyed the Hotel Maryland on 04/18/1914. The fire value was set at $650,000.
