Vista del Arroyo Hotel, Stowell & Proust Bungalow, 125 South Grand Avenue, Pasadena, Los Angeles County, CA



Significance: The Vista del Arroyo bungalows are significant as an integral part of the hotel complex, of which the main building is the centerpiece. Historically, the hotel-bungalow idea, originated in Pasadena by D.M. Linnard, spread throughout southern California, and the Vista del Arroyo remains as a fine example of this concept. In addition, the association with D.M. Linnard, a leading figure in the history of the hotel business in California (at one time or another he owned or managed the Green, the Raymond, the Maryland, the Huntington, the Vista in Pasadena, the Fairmont in San Francisco, the Samarkand, the Arlington and El Encanto in Santa Barbara and the Coronado in San Diego), makes the Vista and its bungalows a significant site. The Stowell & Prost Bungalow, attributed to Hunt & Chambers, represents the work of one of Southern California's greatest architects of the period, Myron Hunt. Hunt became nationally known for his work in the Spanish Colonial Revival and Mediterranean styles. He designed numerous hotels, including the Ambassador in Los Angeles; hospitals, including the Huntington Memorial Hospital in Pasadena; and civic buildings such as the Pasadena Public Library. Hunt also designed the Huntington Library and Art Gallery.
