History:

The Winthrop Hotel in Tacoma, Washington was built in 1925and was the pride of the city for many years. It was designed to attractbusiness travelers and tourists and become a civic center for the community.The hotel was named after Theodore Winthrop, an explorer and Union Civil Warofficer who visited Puget Sound in 1853 and wrote of the region’s beauty. Thehotel had a grand opening on May 16, 1925, and soon became a popular venue forproms, dances, and weddings. Its grand Crystal Ballroom and roof garden hostedmany special functions. The hotel was designed for business travelers and hadtelephones in each room. However, the hotel rarely exceeded 50-percentoccupancy and the original shareholders did not get their investment back. In1940, two upper floors were converted to apartments and the hotel made moneyduring World War II. But by the early 1960s, it was in financial difficulties,and efforts that included renovations, a new nightclub, and a Japaneserestaurant could not save it. In 1973, the Winthrop was converted toaffordable-housing units. In the mid 2000, the building\'s heating, plumbing,and rooms were updated. The ballroom was restored. The building still serves asrental apartments.
