This unique Gaslamp Quarter property is a historical bonanza. A couple 1880s-era buildings (the Grand Horton Hotel and the Brooklyn Hotel, which Wyatt Earp called home for several years) were rescued from demolition, dissembled and, in the 1980s, relocated and reconstructed at this site, where the city's most infamous brothel, the Canary Cottage, once stood when the area was a red-light district known as the Stingaree. The two separate structures are connected by a light-filled atrium and a New Orleans-style courtyard. Quaint rooms are outfitted with antique furniture, gas fireplaces, and flat-screen televisions; suites are also available. The Palace Bar off the lobby is an elegant, old-timey watering hole featuring over 500 types of whiskey and live music on weekends.
