(Click Photo to Zoom)
San Francisco Landmark #176
Cadillac Hotel
366-394 Eddy Street and 300-324 Leavenworth Street
Built 1908

The Cadillac Hotel was designed by the architectural firm of Meyer and O'Brien in the Renaissance/Baroque style with Art Nouveau influences and a three-part design unusual in apartment hotel construction. Its construction in 1908 foreshadowed the development of the Tenderloin as a major residential neighborhood stimulated by the 1915 Panama Pacific International Exposition.

For many years beginning in 1924, the Cadillac Hotel was the home of Newman's Gym, reputed to be the oldest professional boxing facility in the United States. Nearly all of the greats in American boxing history trained or competed here.

Adapted from City Planning Commission Resolution 10152 dated November 15, 1984.

Today the Cadillac Hotel provides supportive housing for approximately 160 tenants. According to the Cadillac Hotel website, it was the first non-profit Single-Residence Occupancy (SRO) hotel west of the Mississippi.
