Coronado Hotel (26/29)
Coronado Hotel…4th Avenue 9th Street
The Coronado Hotel, a three-story Spanish Colonial Revival icon, prominently marks the intersection of the unique shops along 4th Avenue and the western edge of the historic Iron Horse neighborhood. One-story commercial buildings line 4th Avenue, a factor, which establishes the Coronado as both a significant visual anchor and Tucson landmark.
The hotel is a stucco building featuring a Spanish tile roof and, once again, Churriugueresque entry surrounds.
The Coronado Hotel was constructed in 1928 by Harold M. Brooks, an English immigrant attracted to America at the turn of the century by employment opportunities. Initially Brooks operated a bakery on the site from 1910-1927. Recognizing the economic potential fostered by Tucson’s increasing tourism during the 1920’s, Brooks announced the construction of the Coronado in January of 1928 at an exorbitant cost of $90,000.
