Was there a hotel call the "Belle of the Union"? If so, is there any records available about it?

There are two possible answers to this question.
One that you meant “Belle Union”: “The first pioneer hall in the city, was on the lot, corner of Washington and Kearny streets. It was on the second floor of the Belle Union Theatre building. The pioneers rented it from Richard Ross. That’s from this website: http://www.hellosanfrancisco.com/Early-Days/early-days-chap5page3.htm
The second is that you mean the “Bella Union Hotel” which is in the 300 Block of North Main Street, and designated California Historical Landmark 656 in the Civic Center area of Los Angeles. That’s from this website: http://www.usc.edu/isd/archives/la/pubart/CivicCenter/bella_union.html
