San Diego, California
A Dovetail Production 

In 2021, Dovetail + Co acquired the historic St. James Hotel, a 99 room full-service hotel located in the Gaslamp District of San Diego. The St. James Hotel was originally built in 1913 as a Victorian, eleven-story hotel that soared over San Diego with stunning, unobstructed views of the city. Today, the stately and storied structure maintains its original two-story neon sign along with shimmering chandeliers, detailed tin ceilings, stained glass windows, and marble staircases all hailing from the early 1900s. 

San Diego’s Gaslamp District buzzed in the late 1800s when the area was home to saloons, gambling halls, and bordellos. Today, the area still sparkles with bars, restaurants, and nightlife venues. The famous 16 ½ block neighborhood hosts yearly events and festivals while boasting close proximity to San Diego’s Major League Baseball Field and Convention Center.   

Dovetail will be stewarding this important property through a complete renovation to cater once again to the discerning traveler.
