Los Diego Hotel / Caldo Pomodoro Restaurant
||2907 State St.
Businessman Roy Chase built the Los Diego Hotel in 1925 to promote travel and commerce between Los Angeles and San Diego – hence the name. By the early 1930s, State Street was replaced by Carlsbad Boulevard as the main route to San Diego, and the demand for tourist accommodations dropped. The hotel was converted to shops and offices and has remained this way ever since.
