Hotel Sentor : LUSENET : San Francisco History : One Thread

My father and mother were married somewhere in California in 1924 thay have been dead for over twenty years, while going through some old boxes I found a silver ash tray with Hotel Senator 1924 on it. Is there a hotel in San Fransico with that name, and was it there during the earthquake.? Thank you

Hello, I believe the Senator Hotel is low-income housing, and it was used during the Indian occupation of Alcatraz around 30 years ago.

Opened September 1924 at 519 Ellis Street, a photograph can be viewed, along with additional information re its opening, at the San Francisco Public Library's web site of Historical Photographs: image AAB-2414.

I have just recently aquired a silver demi-spoon that is engraved with "HOTEL SENATOR 1924" All of your info has been very helpful to me also, thank you. I am trying to look up any and all info regarding the Hotel Senator in San Francisco. If anyone could help give me pointers in the right direction it would be greatly apreciated.
