Description

Winslow altered the Chapman Park Hotel and Bungalows, which were located on Wilshire Boulevard, in 1936. The hotel had been in business since the early 1900s, and Winslow added details to make the walled garden with bungalow cottages feel more like a Mexican village with white stucco walls and red tile roofs.
The Hotel was located along the rapidly expanding Wilshire Boulevard, near the Ambassador Hotel, Bullocks Wilshire department store, and the Brown Derby restaurant. The hotel was demolished in the 1960s to make way for an office building.
