Built in 1913, the sleek Hotel Stowell, at 414-416-418 S. Spring St., would fit into the second lot south of the Union Trust Bldg. The Hotel Stowell would later be known as the El Dorado.

Here of some interior photos before it was converted to lofts:

The front lobby today:

The former El Dorado Hotel was originally constructed in 1913 and named the Hotel Stowell after it's builder, N.W. Stowell, a capitalist and financier. The ground floor showcases what is thought to be the largest area of intact Batchelder tile in the world. The exterior facade is dressed in concrete and turn-of-the-century terracotta. Notorious for once being the home of the esteemed actor Charlie Chaplin, the El Dorado is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Original design elements have been carefully preserved while creating a modern, innovative living environment. Arched Windows and french doors leading to private balconies adorne each of the loft spaces. Kitchens and Bathrooms are decorated with Italian designed finishes and granite countertops.

With it's timeless beauty, classic architecture, and glorious past, an historic landmark hotel in downtown Los Angeles reclaims its legacy as one of the city's venerable addresses.
