Discover the Huntington Hotel, the Georgian-style hotel named after influential railroad tycoon Collis P. Huntington.

The Huntington Hotel was constructed during the “Roaring Twenties,” in which flappers, the radio, and the Art Deco movement defined the age.

The Huntington Hotel building was originally designed by Weeks and Day as the Huntington Apartments in 1922. It was converted to a hotel by real estate developer Eugene Fritz, who bought the property in 1924. It was originally and famously known as the “Huntington Hotel,” named after Collis P. Huntington, one of the “Big Four.” The Big Four was the name popularly given to the famous and influential businessmen, philanthropists, and railroad tycoons who built the Central Pacific Railroad, (C.P.R.R.). They are Leland Stanford, Collis Potter Huntington, Mark Hopkins, and Charles Crocker; the four themselves however, personally preferred to be known as ""The Associates.""

The twelve-story, Georgian-style brick building features 134 guestrooms and suites. Fritz' grandchildren ran the hotel until selling it in 2011 to Singapore-based Grace International. The hotel closed on January 4, 2014 and reopened in May 2014 as The Scarlet Huntington, following a $15 million renovation.
