The St. Francis Hotel

JoeGarity has added a photo to the pool:

The St. Francis Hotel

Built between 1904 and 1913, with the 32 story tower in the back added in 1972. Faces Union Square in San Francisco. People who have stayed here include Teddy Roosevelt, Woodrow Wilson, Helen Keller, Douglas MacArthur, Queen Elizabeth II, Ronald Reagan. Al Jolson died here playing cards, and the notorious Fatty Arbuckle scandal happened here. A little slice of history in San Francisco. Sorry, I don't mean this to sound like an advertisement, just seeing the history all around us.
