"The proposed $2,750,000 Arroyo motor Hotel seen in this 1960 drawing would have been a strikingly modern addition to Pasadena. The project proposed by Hawkins Petroleum, by Paul Williams and associates included 180 units, a private "mens only" Executive Club with individual suites and a heliport (L.A. Times, Dec. 4, 1960) The planned hotel featured a dramatic courtyard dominated by an elevated circular platform housing a restaurant and dining room. The developer, Hawkins Petroleum, was known for it's diverse investment portfolios. The project was not realized."
