Santa Rita Hotel

The Santa Rita Hotel was designed and completed by Henry C. Trost, independently of his firm of Trost & Rust, in circa 1902 – 1903 in Tucson, Arizona. The building is described as a Mission Revival structure by several sources, however its parallel lines and 90 degree angles suggest the Pueblo/Spanish design repeated in Trost’s Holland Hotel in Alpine, TX and the Gateway Remodel in El Paso. A 1917 addition, not designed by Trost, was added, which is reflected in the right-side taller wing we see in the attached photograph. The Trost half of the Santa Rita was demolished in the 1970s, and the 1917 addition was demolished in 2009.
