Riviera Hotel

The Historic Riviera Hotel Staybridge Suites

The historic Riviera Hotel was constructed in 1927 and opened for business on January 10, 1928, at a cost of $325,000. The building was designed and constructed by Henry Harms Preisibius (1872-1964) who also constructed San Diego's first high-rise building, the 11 story (new) St. James Hotel in 1912.

The Riviera Apartments/Hotel, built for Dr. Lischer, was touted as progressive for it's time. It boasted it's own radio tower on the roof with hookups to all the units. The 47 single apartments, 19 double apartments, and 10 hotel rooms were fully furnished including dinnerware, spring water, refrigeration and steam heat.

The renovation plan, which was completed in December of 2003, and took approximately 11 months to complete, includes the complete renovation of the historic Riviera Hotel, the reinstallation of 68 kitchens into the remodeled suites, new bathrooms, air conditioning, the addition of a ground floor food service area for free breakfasts, a business center, fitness room, and meeting rooms.
