Ever since I moved to Phoenix I have been fascinated by this hotel. I was drawn to the old neon sign and interesting textures on the weathered walls. I feel this hotel has many stories to tell. I just love that Phoenix still has pre 1900 buildings still intact many with so much history.
The countdown to Best of Phoenix continues! Last year, we profiled 100 Creatives who made a mark on the local arts scene. This year, we'll have 100 creative representations of Phoenix. No scope or requirement on medium or size -- we'll include photography, painting, sculpture, video, installation, literary, and more. What do you see when you Imagine PHX?
