Courtyard San Diego Downtown
This isn't just the Marriott Courtyard Hotel at Sixth and Broadway. It's also the historic San Diego Trust and Savings Bank headquarters, designed by William Templeton Johnson in 1928. The fantastic lobby he created is the same now as it was then, a few stories high, lined with Italian marble, and crowned with a ceiling exactly like Mexican churches of old, every bit hand-painted.
