Hotel Figueroa

This historic hotel is a longtime champion of women. Beginning as a ladies’ hostel in 1926, it was the largest project of its kind in the U.S. to be financed, owned and operated by females at the time. The property also made history by employing America’s first female hotel manager, Maude Bouldin.

Today, Hotel Figueroa honors this legacy by featuring female artists’ work, including a 12-story façade mural of vintage florals from Bella Gomez and an ongoing exhibit spotlighting local women artists. The overall hotel design also radiates a feminine feel, like the vivid blue fig leaf bathroom wallpaper and the curvy furniture.
