Villa Roma Motor Hotel, San Francisco 1963

Villa Roma Motor Hotel, San Francisco 1963

Promoted as “San Francisco’s Most Elegant Motor Hotel,” the Villa Roma opened around 1962 in the city’s North Beach district. The Villa Roma, once located at 1212 Columbus Ave., offered the utmost in modern furnishings, a view with every room, and a fabulous cocktail lounge. Alas, the Villa Roma disappeared in the 1990s, only to be replaced by a mega-Marriott Hotel.

I have an old Villa Roma postcard, postmarked June 7, 1962. On the back, the hand-written message begins... "this is the motel to end all motels; the view from our window is the Bay, shipping, and Alcatraz, so interesting, we can hardly tear ourselves away..."

And so it was.
