HORTON GRAND HOTEL-1886
4th and Island Avenues.
San Diego’s oldest Victorian hotel, it was originally called the Grand Hotel and later renamed the Hotel Horton in 1907. In 1981, the Horton and the nearby Kahle Saddlery hotels were torn apart and completely restored. The two reopened side by side as one, in time for their 100th birthday in 1986. (The Horton is on the left as you face the entrance.)
The facelift restored the oak starcase of the Horton, the stained-glass windows of the Saddlery, and the bay windows of both.
