It's hard to believe the Hotel Westmoore was already 30 years old in 1910!!

I guess you are suspecting right, Ethereal.
If we look to the Fremont Hotel (1880's) and then to the Bradbury Building (1893), we notice that the simplification of lines increases every ten years (to the 1970's I guess). The Westmore looks simpler than the Bradbury. So I'd say it was built in the 1900's.
