Where was the Baldwin Hotel of 1870 - 1885?

greenspun.com : LUSENET : San Francisco History : One Thread

I am looking for information concerning the location of the Baldwin Hotel during the period between 1870 and 1885. Sarah Althea Hill (of the Senator Sharon and Judge Terry fame) lived there on and off during that period. I know there is a Baldwin Hotel at 321 Grant

E.J. "Lucky" Baldwin's hotel was located at the corner of Powell and Market on the site of today's Flood Building. According to my references it lasted well past 1885, burning in a spectacular fire in 1898.

You must be lucky if you are a relative of Lucky Baldwin. There was a book written in 1933 about Lucky Baldwin, a complete biographic of his life.
